Did you have migraines before you had neck prob.?  I had them for about 25yrs, had tried everything. After a lot of research I found that it was hormonal. I found  an obgyn  that prescribed natural progestrone.not synthetic (very important) one 300mg ca. 1 x day saved my life and sanity. They started when I was in my teens. Got worse as I got older. Didn't have them when I was pregnant. It ended up that I had to have hystorectomy. Still had 1 and part of the other ovary. Dr.'s told me it shouldn't I should not have hormonal migrainses. But I did. Not a lot of people know about the progesterone for migraines. If you think it might be worth a try see your OB. Can't hurt, as for your neck pain, if they feel surgery could help you, and you have done pt and everything.research it and go with what you feel is right for you. I have bulging and hearnated disk at every level with DDD and nerve damage. They can't fix it. I do have a nerve stimulator, haven't gotten it quite right for me, and there are parts of my back it can't help. I'm hoping it will at least help me get off some of the mess. Best wishes to you.
