Is there Hope? Yes. I found it after 17 years of awful daily chronic migraines

I have had migraines for 17 years. I am a fifth generation of migraines in my family and I've past it on to my 23 yr old son.

I had chronic migraines and have been to specialists, and special migraine clinics with no help. I finally found a doc who would work with me and try things to try and find some relief. I have tried most of the drugs out there and I do mean most of them. I've been told there is nothing I can do for you.

I used to go the ER at least 1-2 times a month. I've been on FMLA at work because I miss so much work. Most days I would wake up and think I just have to make it to 5pm and then I can go home and back to bed. It was a horrible way to exist! About 10 months ago I had a new procedure-stimpath Migraine treatment from Dr. Kennth Reed in Dallas TX. Changed my life.

I still have migraines, maybe 1 or 2 a month but they are nothing like before. They are controllable now and I control them instead of the other way around. This Doc is great. My insurance covered the cost too!! Anyway who has chronic migraines should look into this. More doctors are getting on board with this and you will hear much more about this.
