A long time
I've had migraines since I was 8 years old. I was checked for tumors and none were found. I've gone through periods of time where I haven't gotten them for years, but within the past couple they have started up again-worse than ever.
I went back to college at the age of 26, and the stress is definitely a trigger. There's nothing I can do about the stress so I feel stuck.
I'm afraid to go to the doctor because I feel like I'll be blown off. I'm at the point where I think I need preventative medication, but I'm terrified of the side effects.
