I am 53 yr old and I get severe migraines. My mom and sisters do also. Lately they are getting worse. I have pain behind my eye to the top of my head. Lights and some sounds hurt. I can't see through my eye clearly. I vomit and there is aura. This always lasts 3 days. Then one day later the migraine goes to the other eye. I am in bed in the dark for 6 days. They have been getting more painful and coming more often. I take vitamins b2 riboflavin 200mg and magnesium 500mg. When I feel the migraine coming I take maxalt with very little relief. I have tried botox but that Wears off in 6 weeks then the migraine hits and is even more painful. I can't go to work so I call off this happens alot so I get fired. Once I tried to go to my doctor and I crashed my car over the parking cement slots. It's very blurry in the eye and I can't look at any lights. I use to get migraines once a month but now it's every week. I am at my wits end and don't know what to do. I get a job then the migraine hits and I get fired. This has been going on for the last 2 yrs. I can barely make rent. I try to work as much as I can. This is all getting to be too much.
