It Never Ends

I've had the same migraine since I woke up with it on Oct 25, 2021. I was diagnosed with migraine since 1995.

Hemiplegic migraine

I have had persistent migraines at least 15 days a month since then. I was diagnosed with hemiplegic migraines in 2011. I have one event every month. I have tried every migraine-related medication on the market including the yvepty infusion, all NSAIDs, gpants, gsrps (spent a year on emgality,) narcotics, muscle relaxants, triptans, blood pressure meds, and was even hospitalized in Nov. to try controlled medication "shocks" to see if they could get it to break. They did MRI's, MRV's, cts and labs. Nothing helped. Just dropped my BP to 70/40.

One day at a time

I just try to take each day fresh and take fmla if I can't see straight. I can't exercise (or do much of anything) at all and have ballooned to a whopping 275 pounds. I do have spine and neck injuries that plague me with daily pain as well and there is no relief. I hope that more research is done to find a cure for this terrible silent disease.
