I have tried just about everything and still the Dr's cannot figure out my migraines. I get them everyday and am lost on what to do. Any advice?

Hi there Codybone,
Thanks so much for your questions! Unfortunately, there is no one size fits all approach in migraine management and it is important to remember what works well for someone may not for another. Don't give up hope to find effective treatment though!! There are many treatment options that can be considered. As you wait for possible feedback from the community, in the meantime let me share a few resources with you.
Wishing you all the best at finding a treatment that will provide you with the relief you are in great need of!

I've found for me a 100mg sumatriptan (the weaker 25mg does nothing for me however) and an ice pack works well, along with trying to find a cool, dark, quiet place to spend some time. At work they just about always have the a/c blasting, but dark and quiet is hard to come by. I do feel very drained as a side effect of the sumatriptan, but I'd much rather feel drained than get a killer migraine headache.
As Joanna said, there's no one size fits all answer. Best of luck to you in finding an effective treatment!

I initially started with identifying my triggers which were
- Fermented Food
- Too much of Travel or Physical Activity
Tried to avoid these, it did help me for a few days but again I started having Migraines in-spite of avoiding these triggers
After that I consulted a doctor who suggested me to take medicine Flunarine-10 as soon as I felt that I am going to have a migraine, I used to take that medicine but it never gave me relief. It did reduce the pain but I wanted a permanent solution for it as it was very frustrating. I could not even do my daily tasks when I had a migraine.
I finally got relief from migraine through Homeopathy. I am currently on 1 year Homeopathic course for migraine. I just need to take four homeopathic pills in the day and four in the night.
