I just stumbled across this site, and thought I would share my story on here because to be truly honest I am feeling pretty freaked out. Almost a year ago I started getting frequent headaches. I wouldn't say they were unbearable, but nothing I could take would make them go away. They would last for two to three days then go away on their own. No other symptoms, just dull head pain constantly. This would happen about once a month. Slowly they have become more frequent and intense. Now I have a headache every day. And I have begun to get other symptoms, like intense neck pain (the neck pain/base of my skull hurts worse than my head usually). Confusion. Lack of coordination. Nausea. Mood changes. My primary care doctor thought it was my birth control so we switched that several times but it had no effect. I have cut out dairy, gluten, caffeine, sugar. I drink an insane amount of water, exercise. I did go to the ER with one particularly bad spell and the gave me a CT scan (I had bad hand tremors that time) but nothing irregular showed. No one in my family has a history of migraines. I'm 30 years old. I have seen a neurologist who put me on Topomax, but so far no luck. What scares me the most is the rate they are accelerating. I never had auras, now when one is coming I go almost completely blind in my left eye or my vision gets completely blurry and unfocused. I get theses headaches 4-5 a week. Low pain usually, luckily, but lots of confusion and trouble concentrating so while I haven't had too much problem with missing work and school, I haven't performed very well in either.I just started graduate school,and I don't want to have to put my life on hold indefinitely to figure this out. Has anyone had a similar experience to me, and if so, what did you do?
