That is very interesting to hear. I would imagine that the pain in your wrists might be causing unnatural positioning in other parts of your arm and thus the tension, and maybe the headaches. I think you should mention this to your doctor and see if there is a connection. You know your body and what it is doing. Talking it over with them might help a light bulb to go on. You never know.

Just curious have they done a brain scan to make sure that you don't have a brain tumor or brain anyurism? I have migraines and have had them from a very early age, and also have carpal tunnel syndrome. My Doc is setting me up for a brain scan only because my Grrandpa at 49, and my Niece at 23 passed from a brain anyurism. I don't want to scare you, but I would want to rule it out. Best of luck to you, and hope your migraines go away. Take care and May God Bless you.

Please get a second opinion on that. My husband had a pituitary tumor when he was in his 20's. That is nothing to mess with and they need to make sure it is not a growing mass, even if it is tissue. That can crowd out the glad and crush it. That is what happened to my hubby, so now all his hormones come from external sources. Balancing that is hard.
