Since Christmas, I have found that I have rarely gone a day without a migraine - far too many days have been spent bedbound in a world of pain. I am on preventive medication as well as abortive - but it seems to b doing really little at the moment. If I go to my doctor, he just tells me to avoid triggers, but its like there's so many of them, I feel like I'm losing control!
I have to sleep properly, watch my mood, not skip meals, drink plenty, no alcohol or coffee, avoid bright lights, loud noises, avoid stress, can't watch tv, not be on a computer for too long, can't read/focus on a book and low pressure will also trigger a migraine - to me this is just life? How on Earth am I supposed to avoid this lot?
My quality of life has been vastly reduced in just 6 weeks and I'm really struggling with the isolation, the pain and the loss of control - any suggestions?
