Suffered with migraine since I was a baby

I started being ill when I was a baby my mum struggled terribly with me always being sick. I’m now 23 and still have them and am sick of them and don’t know what else is out there to help them. I’ve been given all different types of medication to help but nothing works.

I’m currently in topiramate 100mg a day I have a migraine at least once a month and can easily last for a week. Which means me missing out on work and everything. And work also seems to not believe me. They are a vicious circle. I’m a mum too, to a baby which is hard work. My partner has to take time off work to care for both of us when i’m poorly. I don’t know what else is out there and wish there was a cure !! People that don’t have migraines don’t understand them!!
