Dear Zane,

If The Headache Clinic found that the cause of your pain is muscle tension then the best treatment is undoubtedly what is called a ‘Posture Modifying Appliance’ (PMA). But if you prefer to try medication, and if the magnesium is no longer helping you, then please contact them again. There are other medications that are sometimes helpful, but one can’t tell in advance which one will be best for a particular patient – so it is a case of trial and error.

The Headache Clinic has the most up-to-date information on the available medications. They do not charge for repeat consultations, so please contact them and they will give you a prescription for the next medication to try.

The information provided does not constitute a diagnosis of your condition. You should consult a medical practitioner or other appropriate health care professional for a physical exmanication, diagnosis and formal advice.
