I am sick of this crap. I have seen multiple doctors, been prescribed drugs that don't work (amitrip, maxalt, etc) and here is a post from a forum that closed in the middle of our topic.
Its pretty much still like that (over a year ago) and I still am fatigued during the day, get stabbing headaches... all that good stuff.
Hello, for the past year or so, I have been getting headaches daily. Not 100% every day, but usually 75-90% of the month.
In the past, but not super recently, I got stabbing pains in my head with the aches. This was usually in school.
I never take Tylenol anymore, or any medication, it hardly affects me, if at all.
I went to a neurologist a few times and got an MRI done and it showed nothing.
I still have headaches.
Every once in a while I get one like I have now, where it's just super achey and almost limiting because I don't want to do anything.
I have also noticed headaches affect my mood in a negative way. I get anti-social and angry.
I do get enough sleep each night. I got 8+ on school nights and 8-10+ during the summer.
I don't know what to do because it hurts and I just feel like crap and my parents hardly care. I tell them I'm still having problems and they're like, "I didn't know they still happened daily.". End of conversation.
I had to call in during a school fieldtrip to make my first neurologist appointment because my parents "forgot" for over a month of reminders.
I have also noticed my MEMORY getting terrible. I used to have decent memory, nothing phenomenal but fine. I'll have times mid conversation where I just stop, and ask "What was I just saying?".
Yeah, it happens. But this happens to me almost daily.
Then there's forgetting placement of items, within seconds or minutes of setting them down.
It's not just that. Sometimes my mom will say "Call me when you're done" or "when you get there" etc, and I forget. Then she gets mad.
This is affecting my life and I want it to stop.
I'm also scared to take any drugs for anything. I don't take over the counter headache relievers, they don't work. My mom said it might be because of my sleeping because I wake up mid sleep, at night, probably 1-3 times a night, every night. Unless I fall asleep past 3 or 4 AM.
This one time I took tylenol and "tripped". I woke up and everything was surreal, like a dream, and I felt really sick, and confused. I staggered into my parents room and told them, they told me to go back to sleep. I went to the bathroom, diarrhea, and then back to bed. Scared the crap out of me. No, I've never done drugs or drank, I'm not an idiot.
What the heck do I do? Doctors are failures.
H e l p. Please.

I'm sorry you are having these headaches. Tell me about your experiences? what works? what doesn't? Have you been to see a specialist?
