I am at my wit's end trying to figure out exactly what is going on with my neck anymore. It has actually taken precedence over my major lumbar spine problems as of late. I have mild degeneration with two pinched nerves with stenosis worse on the right side. I keep waking up with what feels like a stiff neck, but this is the least of the problem right now. Shortly after waking up feeling this neck pain, and slow, steady headache keeps building more and more as the day wears on: it is a progressive process which then leads to nausea from the severity of the headache. When this happens, nothing I take helps and my entire day is stolen from me. What does a pinched nerve have to do with the onset of a migraine like headache? I am going to get the epidural done asap, but I would really like to know exactly what is happening here more and more often. I actually feel like my day is stolen from me and want to correct things if I can! Does anyone else get this 'syndrome'?

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
