mad  Hi all, im new here. I am struggling with migraines and am almost at the end of my rope. every day for nearly 7 months i have had a migraine. Ive been to doc after doc looking for answers and none seem to know why this is happening. Ive tried all the meds, and the only thing that helps is percocet. Unfortunately my PCP is afraid to prescribe them. I dont take any other narcotics because they give me rebound headaches, but percocets dont have that effect. I am seeing a pain specialist on the 26th but what am i to do until then.
Someone please help.
Thanks...Molokai's Mom

Hello Molokai's Mom,
 
Welcome to HealingWell :)  If you don't mind me asking, where are your migraines located?  What kind of symptoms do you get with them?  Is there any pattern to your migraines or have you found any triggers?
 
Have you tried simple things like massage therapy or a heating pack on your neck and an ice pack on your forehead and temples?
 
*hugs*

Besides your pain specialist appointment, you may also want to see if there is a neurologist who specializes in migraines in your area. When did it start? Was there anything significant going on when your migraine first started? A stressful event? Something hormonal? A change in medication (even otc)?

It can be so frustrating to continually wake up with a migraine...I'm really sorry you're going through this!
