Hi people. I am 19 almost 20 (next month: Oct.). I have had really bad headaches since I was about 7 years old. I have gone to a Neurologist... Nothing. I have had an EEG: came back normal, a CT scan: also came back normal. I have also tried practically every Over the Counter drug (Tylenol, IBProfen, Advil, Aleeve, Bayer!!!, Excedrin, the powder ones). Even now, I am having trouble typing this b/c my head is killing me so much. Sometimes I just want to disconnect my head and throw it at the wall it hurts that bad. I have had it where I am just crying my head off it hurts so bad; can't sleep until 3:30 am b/c of one! I have also tried Rx drugs that are suppose to help!!! (Imitrex is the only one I remember right now.). Well, lately, I'[d say within the past 6 months, when I get one (almost daily) it is to the point where I am sick to my stomach and want to throw up! I have them sometimes even last for days or I think I've had one last a week and a half before. I've gone to 3 different docs who have given mesample packages of this andsample package of that. Everything that any doc has given me has either done nothing to the ache or has increased the pain. When I was younger, I used to be able to sleep the pain off but not anymore. A dear friend of mine (11yrs older) has had the same problems with headaches/migraines as well and now has to take Lortabs and it's getting to the point that even them (Lortabs) aren't working. She and I are so alike that I wonder if I am experiencing the same "Life" as she did when she was my age. See, right now, my symptoms of everything are almost if not is exactly how she was when she was my age. What can I do?????? I just want the pain to finally STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
