Let me explain…. For almost 3 years now, I’ve migraine pain (pain, light sensitivity, noise sensitivity, vomiting some days, body aches some days, body getting colder the worse the pain is) 24 hours a day 7 days a week!! My pain ranges from a 6-8 on a scale of 1-10. I’ve had to quite my job, I rarely leave the house and if I do I always have my sunglasses and earplugs with me.
I have been to many different doctors, hospitalized several times, had 6 rounds of ECT treatments, had tons of test done, had several blocks, IV’s and injections that didn’t work and been on so many medications I’ve lost count, none of which have helped. I’ve stopped going to the ER because those medications don’t work any longer. The doctors have found nothing that will break or even help lessen my pain. I’m in the process of having Botox treatments but like with all the rest, it’s not helping the pain….I don’t have any wrinkles on my forehead though 🙂
After I finish the Botox rounds I’m going to ask my doctor if he could refer me to Mayo.
My question is…is what I’m experiencing truly chronic migraine pain or is it something else? I only have pain in my head, not in my neck or the rest of my body. I’m just really frustrated that we can’t find anything to stop this pain!! I’m 43 and would really like to have my life back!!!
Thanks for any help!!
