Forever Migraines

I am a female, 64 years old and have been suffering with migraines since I was in my early 20's, if you can believe that. In all these years, I think the longest amount of time I have gone headache free was maybe 3 weeks, but it is hard to remember. Lately, and I do mean the last 7 years, give or take, if I go 3 days without one I consider myself lucky. As you can imagine, I have tried most meds and therapies and treatments and doctors and tests and not any help. I do have other health issues with my body, such as OA and Scoliosis, metal rods, and a pretty severe cervical spine which I know does not help the issue.

Anyway , that is it in one big nutshell. My biggest wish would be to be like a lot of people who don't get headaches or like my husband who "never had one". If that isn't irony, what is? Have a very Happy 4th of July. Everyone is at our community pool but not me because I have a headache.
