I am a mother of a 19-year old boy. He has gotten migraines since he was in 4th grade.after a year of no migraines they returned, but are different. Three weeks ago he got the aura and it has been stuck there ever since. I’ve brought him twice to the hospital for shots. Nothing helps. I want to get a cefaly but the dr won’t respond to our request for a prescription–needed in the US. Would rather have the 3-speed sold in other countries. Anyone out there with access to one, please contact me.
I’m sorry you son is in such pain now. As a mother it is very difficult to see our children in pain – both of mine have migraine so I understand, but thankfully are episodic.
Before we talk about the Cefaly, I wonder if your son has seen a “true” migraine/headache disorder specialist rather than a general neurologist who claims they are a headache specialist? This is why I ask – many general neurologist are good doctors but it’s difficult for them to be experts in one area, though they may treat many patients with headache/migraine and say they are a headache specialist. The reason it’s difficult for these neurologists to be experts in one area is because they treat so many different conditions such as multiple sclerosis, stroke, epilepsy, Parkinson’s and others.
