Convinced I've Been Misdiagnosed
I've had 4 concussions, all between the ages of 18-25. Over the 18 years following the last concussion, I've had 1-2 migraines per month. Over the last 3 years, I went from 2-3 migraines a month to 2-3 migraines a week and strong daily headaches that never go away. I have since noticed personality and other cognitive changes.
My neurologist put me on a variety of "preventative" medications that have had little or no effect. Since I've received no benefit from pain medications, I cannot even take anything to help relieve the daily headaches, but my migraine injections help slightly with migraines.
I was diagnosed 3 years ago with chronic migraines and last week with migraine, transformed. I'm convinced I have post-concussion syndrome or, God forbid, CTE.
