Welcome to Healing Well..........
Nothing I may say will probably help you, only know that I feel your misery struggling with migraines.
I have had this struggle since i was in my early teens and am now 45yrs old.
It isn't easy but like you yourself have said you can't quit on life and give up.
Even after trying all of your known options-keep searching-keep fighting.
What comes next is the tough part.............
Some migraine pain respond to treatment and others do not, so please keep looking.
If anything has helped me even a little is - acceptance -
Realizing that this pain is a part of my life but not my whole life and I have to try and live around it.
Easier said than done..........
Ihad many work mates that either understood or didn't and made my life miserable.
Some even had migraines and couldn't understand why I couldn't find help for mine when they could.
This brings you down about as low as you can go- losing your friends and career.
But you do it for yourself- keep going -
You know your body and try to bring happiness into your life whenever possible.
You know what works for you and what doesn't, even if that means your only option is pain control.
Pain control is the hardest issue when it comes to treating migraines. As was mentioned in other posts, many Doctors are unwilling to offer sufficcient pain control because of tolerance and dependancy issues but they have to be willing to try or direct you in the right direction to find something that is workable for you.
I hope you try another pain clinic or Doctor who can offer new ideas.
People have a hard time understanding what kind of pain migraineurs suffer with.........
It is so much more than pain- it shuts you down totally.
But the time when it lets up you have to try and enjoy those moments(as hard as it may be).
Yes you have to make adjustments- slow down- do things differently - and accept your limitations.
It takes a long time to accept and live with any illness or disablility and you have already taken that first important step - by not giving in.
I hope you find some peace and help- just know that you are not alone.
