I'm starting Depakote and Periactin for prevention. I've been on Depakote before, but my idea is that perhaps combining more than one preventative will lead to good results. Dr. C thought it sounded like a good idea, so we're moving forward with it.
I'm also being referred to an anesthesiologist for occipital nerve blocks.
Occipital nerve blocks are injections of a steroid or anesthetic into the occipital nerves, which are located in the back of the head right above the neck on the left and right sides of the head.
At best it is only a temporary solution, but the treatments can be repeated if they work.
