HELP, HELP, HELP, HELP!
Don't know what else to do. I have had migraines since I was 15 years old, I am now 29. When they began, asprin, or advil would help, each year, they have goten progressively worse.
Currently, these migraines are controling my life, I cant work, I cant sleep, my marriage is falling apart, my son is loosing his mother. Each day I wake up with pain in the occipital area on the right & left sides, as the day begins, my neck tightens, and the naseua/ vommiting sets in, dizzyness, and , and I can make it through and others are worse and I go home to bed and sleep with an ice pack and the windows closed. I am becomig depressed, my family doenst underdstand. I am loosing my self to this.
I have been to pain management and they diagnosed me with Occipital neuralgia and I was treated with coritsone injections in the head- this worked for about 2 weeks, then the chiropractor did a ct and I have 2 herniated discs- he says thats why, so I go to him for treatment 6 months- no improvemnet. My neuroligist as of last weeks decided I had stress induced tension mirgaines. I am on Keppra 250mg 2x day and am being refered to a neuro-pshcy dr for stress management and biofeedback, hypnosis, ect. I just feel like everyone is missing something- I grit me teeth when I sleep and that doensnt help- I tried topamax 200mg and I had bad side affects, I just can t take always hurting anymore- chanea
