Looking for Help

My migraines began after a traffic accident in 1984. I would get them only once in awhile. When I moved from the Eastern U. S. to the West in 1998, they came every couple of days. I sought help and since then have been to several neurologists, dentists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, etc. I have no idea what is causing them. Nothing helps prevent them and nothing helps when I get them. I'm so disgusted.

The last neurologist had me on 5 rescue medicines, ending with Tylenol with codine. I decided to start with that one but even it wouldn't help. I've gone through all the beta blockers, Feverfew, magnesium, Imitrex, Zomig, Topamax, etc. but nothing. I can't even imagine a life without migraines now and would like to start a new job and/or move (I'm back out East now) and need help!
