Meds, meds and more...but no relief from pain

Traversing down the migraine road now for some forty-four diagnosed years with migraines,
I feel like I have seen and heard it all. I mean from the caring people to the ones who say" it's just a headache take a Tylenol and get over it" to some unprofessional people who just have no empathy and don't want to listen.

Learning what to say, how much to say and to whom to say it to, I have always struggled with which has put me in a pickle more than once. I have found some great medical people willing to work with me and listen to me for a change as a patient and professional as well. Together we developed a pain assessment tool and a wonderful plan.

My question why was moving necessary to get the right help? Why is there such a magnifying glass hovering over people with migraines? Sorry now I sound like a skeptic but tired of all the stupid questions about migraine pain medicines.

I enjoy the feedback and other stories I have read. I first posted under a different name and would like to apologize. No excuses just fear. I'm in the same boat perhaps send feedback Please!!!!
