I agree, it seems a lot of us with cervical problems get the same migraines that start at the base of the skull and work their way up into the back of the head and sometimes to the eyes. I went on neurontin back in early December, and up until about 5 weeks ago, it had stopped the migraines, which up until then I was getting about 2 or 3 days each week, so bad I'd have to leave work and go home and stand under a hot shower for relief. They started up again suddenly, and even with increasing the dosage of the neurontin I'm back to getting them 2 or 3 days a week again. I wish I could say exactly what causes them, but I can't. My theory is that the compression on the spinal cord by discs bulging, stenosis, or any other cause obstruct the flow of the spinal fluid, kind of like a dam, and it builds up pressure in the brain stem. I'm no doc, so this could be way off base, but that's my story and I'm sticking to it! ;) Your husband has my complete sympathy, it sounds like he's having a bad time of it. After what he's been through with the surgeon, I'd recommend getting a second opinion with another surgeon and consider switching. I haven't seen anyone have so much trouble due to surgy for ACDF, whereas they had to go through the additional types of surgery you mentioned. Just one man's opinion...
