Migraines, migraines and more migraines

Last updated: April 2013

Hello, My name is Linda and I started having mirgraines about 1 year ago.

I have been on every med known to man. I really don't think I'm kidding! I have seen my regular family doctor for my headaches and he stated I didn't need a neurologist because he was a migraine expert and they would not do any more for me than him.

Every place I was sent we would discover new problem. Sent to the sleep study and found I had complex sleep apnea and by getting a Vpap just may take my headaches away due to all the sleep I was missing. I got my Vpap and have had a headache every single night since then.

Sent to the opthamoligist finding all kinds of fun eye problems, latis degeneration, glacoma, anisocoria. He suggested a neurologist (finally). EEG was normal. 1 nerve block with no success.

Family doctor took me off work and after 3 months my company denied any further payments because "migraines are not a diagnosis" I have been back to work for 1 week and have missed 2 1/2 days already and burning vacation time(exactly how I wanted to spend a vacation day).

I'm frustrated, depressed, the kid doesn't understand mom is hurting again today and may miss her game, the hubby while understanding gets a little upset that I dont feel good enough to do laundry while I'm home.  I'm tired of taking med after med.  ARG!!!!

Yet another nearve block tomorrow!  Wish me luck.

Thanks for letting me vent!
