After I had my daughter I had moderate migraines that seemed to stem from my spine, but eventually after waiting it out for about a week, they went away. I just had my birthson at the end of January and got a different type of medication because it was a planned c-section. So, instead of just getting an epidural, I got a spinal block. The anesthesiologist said there was only about a 1% chance that I would experience or develop what they call "spinal migraines" from this, but that sure a heck seems to be like what it is.
It starts in my tailbone and travels up through my spine right up into my head. Sometimes I get away with a severe headache or a moderate migraine, but in the past day or two it's been severe migraine that causes the pain to fan out from my spine into all my extremeties above the hips.
I see my doctor on Friday, so I'll definitely be asking, I was jw if any of you ladies had experienced this?
