At the end of my rope

I had occasional migraines as a teenager but then had none for many years.

They started up again during breast cancer treatment, due to medication I believe. I am now 10 years post-breast cancer but the migraines have not let up.

They have become more and more frequent until it is almost every day now. Last month I had only 7 days out of the month that I didn’t take a triptan. I have tried Topomax, anti-depressants (twice), propranolol and Botox.

I never drink alcohol and have tried eliminating suspected triggers. Nothing works.
