A Living Nightmare

I have suffered with migraines for over 20 years. They are a living nightmare…I’ve tried everything. I have injections immigram amytriptoline preventers Botox. When I get them, I have them bad. I do try not to let them take over my life…the longest I have had a migraine for is 2 weeks. They were that bad. I was in hospital with it. I really thought I was going mad. I had lumber puncture scans, it was bad…I get them on a regular headache. I can put up with a migraine, complete agony…

    I’m so sorry you’re going through this. It can be so frustrating! I wrote about how I feel like I’ve tried everything, but there’s always something else you can do:

    What kind of doctor do you see? If you don’t see a Headache Specialist you should seriously consider it. This is a neurologist who only deals with Migraine/ headache patients. They are the best equipped to help you try new treatments. Here’s something info on Headache Specialists:
