My entire life I’ve been healthy, fit – never had more than a simple headache before. About two months ago I started on this journey of daily migraines that have never gone away. All out of the blue. Each day can range from a migraine of a 3 all the way to a 10. I’ve been to the ER a few times, have CT scans, MRI’s and more. Everything as far as blood work and everything else has been clean. Neurologist is classifying it as chronic migraines and they have me on a range of medicine. Started off with pamelor, but that caused my heart to race and moved me to topamax recently. I’ve tried cutting out pretty much everything in my diet to see if that had any impact, maybe it was something I was eating, but that hasn’t helped either as far as triggers.
My question is, I feel like it has to be something else other than just migraines. How do I go from never have more than just a common headache to being stuck in migraine cycles solid for two months. It always starts off with pain behind my ears then just grows to the rest of my head. Light sensitivity, noise sensitivity, but always with the ears. Anyone else have any similar experiences where your ears always feel like they are plugged up no matter what and always a common thing to their migraines?
Just looking for ideas, new to all of this and trying to figure things out.
