How long did it take you to receive your diagnosis?

  1. Over 10 years....🙁

    1. I was under 10 years old when I got’s been over 20 years and I still haven’t found a consistent “fix” or effective “band-aid” even.

      1. When I was 12. 6 years later...still not many solutions.

        1. My first migraine was classic. Began with aura, followed by worst headache I'd ever experienced, and uncontrollable vomiting. Diagnosis was immediate. Many years later, the migraines changed to 24/7. Took me a move to lower altitude and referral to headache specialist to be diagnosed with Chronic Migraine. He diagnosed it on first visit, but it took me two years to get referral to him.
