Migraine Help

I was diagnosed with migraines 10 or so years ago, I have taken several daily preventatives to help but still get migrains about 2 or 3 every couple of weeks.

I have discovered that when I work out or work around the house that triggers my migraine. My recent migraine doctor put me on a beta blocker which has really helped me.

My question is when I start to have a migraine it will start with the flashing light and then my entire spine will hurt and the pain will run all the way up my spine and to either one or the other side of my head. Followed by nausea, painful sensitivity to light and sound, I will then give myself an Sumatriptan Succinate injection. If that does not work after three days I have to go see my doctor to have an demerol injection. This is a vicious cycle will this ever end.
