4 generations of migraine=that know of.

When my father was young, he would tie a rag as hard as he could and go to sleep for days. My mother had them mostly in 20s, 30s and 40s. My brother, aunts, cousins, daughter and now her 17 year old-who I’m raising- started migraines last year. This has lead to alcholism-for the males who didn’t have the patience for Dr.s.

I’ve had them since adolescent. 38 years ago, I woke up with paralysis on right side and head pain 24/7/365. They only vary in intensity-never under a #6. I have a
neurologist. Some tried harder, but only got worse.


My heart is breaking for my 17 year old. He is under a neurologist, no positive results. he has failed the last two semesters and I see no change for the future. On top of this, he is on the high end of the autism spectrum.

Has anyone dealt with a child too ill to attend school?
When I thought my life couldn’t get any worse, it did.
would love helpful information. Cassiopeia
