On January 14th 2016 I woke up (after just recovering from a bad flu) with a dull ache type headache. I was assured that it was just the flu, but after I had this headache for over a month people began to get concerned. I had many MRI’s, CT scans, Blood tests but everything was normal. However, between May and August I started to get these terrible headaches that would last about 40 minutes and it was the worst pain I have ever experienced. I had to start missing school because I was getting them every day, I’m pretty sure people thought that this was my crazy way of getting attention because nobody could find a cause… Even I began to think that I had gone off my rocker. I have experienced a lot of side symptoms as well like nausea, dizziness and double vision. Every time I went to see a doctor they told me the same thing: “it’s a tension headache, get some therapy” or “you need to sleep more” or “you just have bad migraine. Though, I am able to tell when it’s a migraine and when it’s that pain, but the main question is: What is the cause for the pain I get in my head every single day?
-I have no olfactory bulbs
-I have not bumped my head in a long long time
– I am 13 years old
-I am currently on 0.5mg pizotifen to help me through the night (it’s a lie dosage because it’s not supposed to be given to under 18’s)
