Herniated cervical discs, post-coital migraines, asymptomatic, MRI

Can herniated cervical discs cause or contribute to ongoing post-coital migraines? I have herniated discs at C5-6 and C6-7, completely asymptomatic and unknown until an MRI was done for headaches . The migraines have been ongoing for ten years, though research indicates the vast majority self-resolve within months or a year or two. Mine haven t. Just wondering is there is a possible connection between the two.

Hello.... I am glad to help.

Yes, there is a possible connection between your neck and the headaches.
This does not mean that the herniated discs are the cause, however. It may be more a matter of muscle tension. Many people have herniated discs on MRI, without these being the cause of specific problems.

It is also possible that there is no connection. Coitus can trigger migraines in some individuals.

My advice is to continue to discuss and treat your headaches with your physician.
