Hello! My girlfriend suffers from a severe headache (8-10 points) every day. Suffering for a long time, from the age of 10, but for the last 2 years the pain has intensified. She has several serious diseases: Epilepsy (seizures 2-3 times a month), Multiple sclerosis (in remission), Depressive-anxiety disorder.
We sought treatment and tried all possible methods: Ibuprofen 800 mg, Paracetamol + Caffeine in high doses, Analgin, Spasmalgon, Triptans of all kinds (including Relpax), long-term use of antidepressants (Velaxin did not fit, switched to Brintellix), monoclonal antibodies course 6 months (two types), Botox (6 months - 3 times). She also regularly takes Gabapentin for epilepsy.
And alas, none of the above helped. Ibuprofen helped a few years ago.
MRI with contrast shows that the foci of multiple sclerosis are stable, there have been no changes in them in recent years. They found a suspicion of "Angioma of the brain", but the neurosurgeon assured that it was too small and in its infancy, so it could not affect the headache.
Tell me, please, are there any other ways to help cope with a headache ... The girl is young, 25 years old, and the headache greatly interferes with life. We are ready to go to another country for treatment, but we do not know where to turn for help with our problem.
