I have been suffering from severe migraines since I was 12 years old, I am not 24. I have tried Ajovy, Verapamil, and Topamax for prevention, and basically every triptan, Nurtec, Cambia, etc. for rescue meds. Nothing has seemed to help, especially not the preventative medicines. I was able to go several years without a migraine on Verapamil, but the last 3 months I have had 4 severe migraines, each lasting between 24 and 72 hours, and putting me out of commission for over a week. I am desperate for anything that could provide relief and prevention for these migraines.
The details of my headaches are: visual aura usually lasting more than one hour, visual aura as the first symptom, tingling and numbness of the extremities usually on one side of the body, severe head pain, often migraines that cycle (I feel better and then the whole thing starts over again). My dad suffered from similar migraines when he was younger, but not as severe. He outgrew them pretty much by my age, and I have not been so lucky.
I greatly appreciate any help!
