Migraine Disease

I have had Migraine Disease for the last 47 years. I have a combination Cluster/Migraine deal. When I get a headache sometimes I can lay down and others times I pace, walk or sit up in a chair all night.

I have been to countless doctors, specialists and even a 6 week pain control clinic. Guess what? I still have terrible headaches about 3-5 times a week, sometimes more. Here in the south if you ask for more than the Triptan drugs, all the doctors think you are a drug addict. Insurance only allows 3 scripts every 3months of Imitrex and some doctors will give you 12 pain pills a month. After that, suffer.

I have tried pressure points, Chrio, and aromatherapy, relaxation. Any ideas out there?

    I also have the migraine/cluster deal going on here. I have been on propranolol it is to prevent migraines. It works to a certain point and when it does not i have to take the Max Alt which is a triptan. If that doesn’t kill the pain then i have to resort to the Imitrex StatDose.

    debby, it sounds like you are probably an excellent candidate for preventive therapy. Are you seeing a headache specialist who might be able to help you with that?
