I have chronic (daily) migraines, I have not had any pain free periods for the last 4 months, it sucks. I get the awful skin sensations of cutaneous alloydnia as well very often and because of getting migraine flares so often the symptoms don't have enough time to settle down between attacks so they just increase.
Is there any meds or anything that can lower that pain? It is my entire head from above my ears, face and has gone into my arms and legs. (One very very 5 day migraine made my entire skin feel like it was covered in glass).
The only thing that kind of helps right now is very cold ice pack (not wrapped in towel) or rubbing peppermint essential oil (gets the cool feeling so only hurts if I touch the hair).
I am on preventative (indreal), appointment with migraine specialist will take about a year to get in and see, tritptans make me super sick (dizzy, can't stand, vomiting, shaking) and I'm on my second family doc who is out of options.
Any ideas? I'll take and try anything at this point.
