    Please comment on headaches that are at back of head at bottom of skull and worse when lying down on one’s back in bed. When standing, the headache moves to right ear and nasal passage (dr. sees nothing there). My BP elevates with this pain and I was recently diagnosed with arthritis in spine at c-3+4 and c-6+7 I am 63 yr. old female in otherwise good health except for white coat syndrome which has become more of a chronic bp problem. Am taking 80mg dioxin. Also, please comment on Zanaflex capsules 6mg which I am supposed to start taking one hour before bedtime.

      I have had a non-stop headache behind my left eye. For two years now. I have tried steroids and they dont do anything. And I’ve been on so many drugs I’ve lost count. nothing has helped. I’m in consent pain all the time. If anyone could helped I would appreciate it.
