I'm a 37-year-old male here. Who use to not have as many migraines when I was in my early to mid-twenties. But as I've got into my late thirties they have progressed into chronic migraines and almost every week I seem to be getting them. On top of dealing with the ones from my allergies as well. I have gone to two research centers in the Orlando area to try different types of treatments. Which didn't help with my chronic migraines? I did everything from injections at the facility. To taking pills and putting the information into a diary every time. Even with all the research studies. They still didn't solve my pain with them. I have seen a neurologist in the Orlando area who gave me pills. Up to 70ml injections to take whenever I felt one come on. But with that, it was only a once a month treatment with the injections. As I told my neurologist I need something I can take on a weekly basis for me. That has a low side effect on me. Especially when taking public transit and working in retail. When I can I avoid the triggers that can set my head into bothering me. From loud music in a small confined place to much sun, being around screaming kid or parent's, to no caffeine in my body, as well as not eating by a certain time.
