how does your head feel when you do not wear ponytails? and how long it your hair?
when mine was a decent length i wore ponytails and headbands and had horrible headaches, just down right painful, (which i think could trigger a panic attack, wondering why the headaches are happening), anyway it took a while to put 2 and 2 together that that was my problem.
especially with all the tests and doctors you are seeing and getting no results, give it a try at least 2 weeks......
let me know
A good news though is that your scans are all normal, which means we should not dealing with anything life-threatening. From the way you describe your headaches, it seems that you have a "band" or "tension" type of headache. These are usually stress related. I agree that the chiropractor may not help much. I suggest you seek consult with a specialist in headaches (neurologist). He can prescribe you with medicines to relieve your symptoms and anxiety. Relaxation can also be a big help. Avoid stress as much as possible and try to have recreational activities, things that you enjoy. Massage treatment (by someone you know or through a spa, your choice) can also be beneficial. I hope this helps. Regards
April's comments seem like a good idea, on the ponytail. I had a friend at work who had long hair, wore it in a ponytail braid. The doctors said the weight of it was pulling her hair out, which I don't know about that, but I myself have to be careful how I put mine in a ponytail or it hurts. Mine is to the waist, and I've taken to braiding it and putting a band on the end, instead of up on the head. I also want to suggest since you want to quit the chiropractor, give a professional massage therapist a try. They can physically work out those muscles in your neck and shoulders and back, to where not only do you get rid of muscle tension headaches, but you also get rid of lots of everything else that bothers you.
