From the Beginning

I've been getting bad headaches since I was only 6 years old. My parents have taken me to doctors to figure out the cause. But no one could figure out why I've been getting them. I still get them to this day. They have been bad and started turning into migraines. I have gone to the doctors many times over the years and still no reason why I've been getting them. Spent a lot of money on doctor visits and prescriptions and no relief. I've gotten temporary relief but nothing that sticks.

I hope to find relief soon because I can go weeks even months at a time with the same headache and migraine with no relief. It's very painful and hard for me to live my life with these everyday. People think I joke around about getting them everyday. But I'm serious and I they are extremely painful. I just want relief.
