My (periodic) headaches are in the temples. But I'm sure a lot of it has to do with all the surgeries I've had on the cervical spine. Though that's the major problem, and is sometimes aggravated when I "transition" into the upper register. I will try the products/techniques you recommended.
Thank you so much...
If you read my posts in Vocal Health> Chiropractic Treatment, (if you get time), I believe you'll get an understanding what I've been dealing with for years. But, yes, muscle tension and misalignments are are major contributor to the headaches, though my chiro tells me I've been a lot easier to adjust since I began to sing again. (ergo More exercise). Otherwise, I don't have those other problems you mentioned, and I do hydrate - more than ever before. Thank you so much for your response.
Also, if you read my posts, you'll get an insight into what I was referring to about "Love", and the tragic, unfortunate loss of it... Again, love your site, and YOUR VOICE !!! Sincerely !!!
Again, Thank you so much...
Hello, "Lady" -Yes, only a student learning all over again, and the proper way, too. Wish this forum and all the wonderful people here, the pros, and others, were available years ago when I "on the scene". But I'm a young 53 going on 39 again, and back in those years, (age 14 to 23), this opportunity didn't exist. Bottom line, I can only imagine the potential if these resources were available then.
Capsicum cream - Used that before and the first brand worked. But I was prescribed a different brand once (much stronger, and I thought I was going to start on fire - Talk about "Heat of the Moment" - WOW - Never used the prescription dose after that. I also use another product called Bio Freeze" now as well, and the heat wraps, and they work well at times, too. The heat wraps are similiar to what Jamie recommends in his book : the warm moist towel wrapped around the neck, which is even more effective due to the moisture. It makes a big difference, but when in a hurry, and need to get "on the move", the heat wraps are convenient.
If you find out what those gelatin capsules are, kindly let me know. I could live with "8 hrs" of relief anytime. I'f I knew what they were, I'd check it out on I-Herb. Great place to get herbals, teas, and a lot of things Jamie recommends in RYV. (you'll find most of the products he recommends right there), and great pricing, too. Check it out : http://www.I-Herb.com
Till the next time, "Rock On "
Thanks to ALL...
