I have suffered with chronic migraines as long as I can remember. I remember in kindergarten going to the nurse almost daily with one and having sensitivity to all my senses, as well as severe nausea. I am 21 now and still dealing with migraines about once a week. I got a daith piercing and I helped with the pain on one side of my head for a few months but they have returned with even worse symptoms including blurred vision and dizziness as well as fever and trembling. I have seen a Dr for my migraines and he prescribed sumatriptan. I had a severe reaction to it and he said he didn't know what else he could do for me.
I miss work at least one day a week due to my migraines and I know my boss is extremely frustrated about it. I am worried that I may be fired soon because of missing so much. My family is also upset with me because they think I need to just "toughen up" and go to work. None of them have ever experienced migraines. They constantly give me suggestions of things that they're "sure will work" like "just drink more water" or "just go to bed earlier."
I don't know what to do since no one I know seems to experience migraines the way I do.
