I am mentally drained from my attacks. Help?

Hey there...

Hope everyone is well during such hard times. I’m new here and it’s unusual of me to seek help online but I am tired and desperate.

My migraines started when I was young and just went from bad to worse over time. I’m 28 years old and it’s been 15 years since having the first attack. I remember that day vividly. Every day I just worry about the next attack. I am getting depressed and I’m almost constantly dealing with the throbbing and pounding pain. On some days, my preventive meds work every now and then.

I cant even lie down because my migraine gets 20x worse. I honestly don’t know what to do. I went to see many doctors but nothing seemed to work for me. I know every one is different but what have you done that worked for you?

Thanks guys.

  2. Hi Que-
    What worked for me was see a migraine specialist who treats all kinds of headaches. He has tried medications that help prevent an attack from coming on and abortive meds to treat the migraine when it comes. I also keep a daily migraine diary of my symptoms and treatments. That helps a lot to see each month how my migraines are and keep track of what meds I’ve tried.
    Migraine diaries can be on paper or phone app. Whatever is easier for you.
    It sounds like you have done everything in your power to stay migraine free.
    I hope this helps.
