Random Onset?

With no family history or previous history of migraines, I had my first migraine around six months ago.

Since then I have had an average of two a week, each lasting 1-3 days. They are extremely debilitating so I have missed a very large amount of school and sports, impacting my social life and therefore mental health.

I also have important exams soon which I’m sure will be affected too. I have had MRIs and blood tests to rule out underlying causes and tried various different diets and medications (sumatriptan, cyclizine hydrochloride, and pizotifen).

Nothing is changing and my attacks are lasting longer each time. I feel completely out of options, especially considering many treatments aren’t available to me.
