Frustrating

Since the middle of February I have a feeling in my head like someone has a cap on it and just keeps tightening it, I have had a continual headache since that time with very little relief, I was in the hospital for a week because of slurred speech, light sensitivity, sound sensitivity and anxiety brought on bad speech and headaches….

Does this sound familiar to anyone

    I feel your pain… I had a continual headache between migraine attacks since August, the doctor put me on topomax which worked fantastic until she then took me off of because of the side affects. She says, let’s try amitrypaline (sp?) and see if that works. No, it’s not working…. I had a major attack right at the switch and now everyday the vice around my head gets tighter and each of the attacks are more severe. I am so exhausted from dealing with this pain everyday and desperate for some relief.

    Laurie, I’m so sorry you’re suffering so. Your description of a cap that keeps tightening sounds very much like tension type headache which can include light and sound sensitivity and nausea etc. They can also trigger Migraine in susceptible individuals.

    Laurie, I’m so sorry to hear you’re suffering so. The description of a cap that keeps tightening sounds like a tension headache which sometimes can include light sensitivity etc. They can also frequently trigger Migraine in those people who are susceptible to them.
