In brief: Muscle spasm

25y female with 6 months of "constant headache & dizziness" undiagnosed by specialists.
Unifying etiology might be Superior trapezius muscle spasm secondary to asymmetric shoulder girdles. Impingement of posterior cervical nerves that normally pierce this spastic muscle arouse dizziness. See Osteopath for diagnosis. Acupuncture, massage & topical Cannabis can help.

"Chronic migraines" seems a new term within medical arena. I encountered several women who informed me their doctors gave them this "diagnosis". They reported having headaches "every day". My exams discovered unilateral Superior trapezius muscle spasms; often associated with large breasts, tilted head, & anterior sloped shoulders.

Osteopaths are trained in general medicine & are experts of musculoskeletal functions & disorders. They are adept at diagnosing soft tissue causes of chronic pain disorders; especially common ones secondary to mundane injuries.

In brief: Headaches

The most common reason for a headache is muscle tension stemming from the neck or upper back (as mentioned) as well as dental issues.
Although depression and anxiety is a very common cause a headache and dizziness. When a neurologist, ENT, and MRI rule out the reason for such symptoms the effects our emotions have on such symptoms are often overlooked.

In brief: Constant headache

Have you been examined by a dentist? If your medical exams were all normal, it may be a dental problem. Your symptoms could be caused by bruxism (chronic teeth grinding and/or clenching), a bad bite, or an infection.
See your dentist for an exam and full series of x-rays.
