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!

    I can sympathize with your frustration. Years of searching for a cure can drive you crazy. But I’m glad that you haven’t given up on trying something new.

    Have you ever seen a Headache Specialist? These docs are neurologists that specifically deal with the over 300 headache disorders. Here’s more info:

    Also, if you are looking for other options or ideas, here are 2 links that might help:

    I hope this helps!

    I have dealt with migraines for years. I finally found an amazing neurologist who did an cerebral angiogram and found a fistula. He believes it was caused by a car accident that I had years ago. Basically my blood flow doesn’t go to the capillaries and disburse. It just keeps rushing through mt head. They put some type of glue in there. No, however I have Allodynia, which is sort of like Fibromyalgia.Now I am looking at a whole new road and I still have the migraines too.
