Sudden onset of severe, at times debilitating headaches, I’m 51 and have never had a history of headaches.

4 doctors later, many different meds with no relief. Oh, and these are DAILY headaches. Scans, blood work normal.

Doctors frustrated, I’m frustrated, last doctor said” I have a headache too, what do you want me to do!” Depressed now, crying all the time.

    Please don’t give up. Keep looking for a doctor who can help you. They are out there. I have been suffering from migraines for 2 years and I am 49 years old. They seem to coincide with my menstrual cycle. I didn’t have a history either. I was the picture of health so I was shocked when they started.

    I have pain on the right side of my head daily, however the pain is not as intense as it was in the beginning. I have been going to a neurologist who is a migraine and pain management specialist at a headache clinic. He listens to me when I suggest a treatment option and if it is viable he uses it.

    This website does have suggestions on finding the right doctor.

    Good luck. I hope you feel better soon.
