I had my coiling done some 4 years before, Initially the headache after the surgery was unbearable for nearly 2 years. I consulted every specialist, Psychiatrist, nearly 5 Neuro physicians but the headache was unbearable and not able to concentrate. All the physicians said this is psychological and I am paranoid. I did not have an option than to accept the opinions of the Consultants. Everybody was suggesting to do Yoga etc.,. Before 2 years, I decided to believe the Physicians and I woke up every morning and tell myself atleast 1000 times that 'I am fine' and "my head does not hurt any more". I kept myself very busy focussed on my job , sometimes i can feel the pain tearing my head and eye apart then I just get up and go for a walk. I will keep saying to myself that ' I am fine' and my head does not hurt. I practised this for nearly 1 year and now I do not feel the pain. Now it is like I have a severe head ache If i think I have . I have learnt to ignore my head ache. I am perfectly all right have a very good job and even thinking of leaving the current job and taking a completely different job so that I can focus. I have been in this area of specialization for nearly 15 years.
Now I do not or may be I do not feel the headache anymore. I am happy. Whatever I said above does not appear rational or itis unbelievable but it is true.
I just wanted to share my experience
