- Question: After radiation following brain tumor surgery, I am plagued by 24/7 headache, frequent migraines (every week, double vision, vertigo, acute hearing, light sensitivity and insomnia. My radiation was 8 years ago. I have gone to a pain clinic with no help and have tried most pain medications, along with acupuncture, nerve blocks, biofeedback, and more. Are there any new treatments for me? I am totally disabled because of this.
Traditional pain clinics are usually run by anesthesiologists for procedures
which generate revenue. They are not truly comprehensive.
Have you tried a University-based comprehensive clinic?
