Hi all! I have had migraines for 12 years! I have had everyday migraines for 2 years straight. Right now i am takinf Topamax 100 mg 2x a day, Lamitical 100mg 2x a day, Prozac 20 mg a day. None of this is helping me. i live in Lynchburg Va. The Neuroligist here will not see me anymore, he referred me to UVA. I see Dr Login. I have a notebook that has two full pages front and back full of medications that I have tried. I am allergic to all of the triptants, NASIDS, Aleave, Naproxen and i have tried steriods several times. I have has MRI's CT scans, Lumbar punctures, blood patches, Lidocaine injections, botox injections and everything that you can imagine and nothing has helped. I have been on every kind of pain meds. The only thing that will help just put a dent in my migraine is Morphine and reglan injections. But the emergency room has point blank told me that I can't come back to them any more. They think that I am there just to get a fix. Noboby understands the pain unless they have had a migraine before. For the past 8 months I have begun to lose my vision completly. I lost my job because of having to miss so much time from work due to this problem. I am currently awaiting my decision on disability. Out of an entire month I am in the bed out of 30 days 28 days. I am tired of living my life like this. My current Neuroligist wants me to go to a headache clinic in either Chicago or Pennsylvania. I am stuck between a rock and a hard place. I know all of my triggers. I have lost 40lbs, because I stay nauses and Vomitting all day long. i can't keep nothing down on my stomach.
I have to children that need me in their life and a husband. My son graduates this year and will be going off to college. I am sick and tired of living like this. I have heard of this surgery that they can do to cut your nerve endings or something like that. But I am afraid of that. You can google migraine surgery and look at it. I feel for anybody that has them, I know exactly how you feel. And them being labled a drug addict is just totally wrong! If I hear of anything new I will post about
it and I hope that you will do thw same. God bless you all!!!!!!!!
