Hi All,

I am a migraine sufferer since I can remember. All the test have been done, and diets was changed. Medication was prescribed, and yet as I am sitting here I have a migraine.

Sometimes like today it feels like someone is jabbing a knife in my brains. But there is something else that is mind boggling. It feels like I am getting a headache on my left side now as well, and that has never happened.

Any suggestions?

Hi Deb,
With anything new, getting checked out by a neurologist would be my next step. I live in Vermont and was surprised to learn there are headache specialists in the area
How are you feeling otherwise?

Hi Sue,

I really feel crap, this is now day 3 and my migraine has escalated. I am at work, but I can barely keep my head up. Both sides are now affected.

With regards to going to see a doc, well my financial position won't allow it. I stay in Johannesburg and medical doctors here are really expensive.

I have tried everything, I usually just drink a migraine cocktail and within a couple of hours it is gone, not this one he is tough.

Since being seen by someone isn't an option for you, what have you tried to manage the pain? (You mentioned a "migraine cocktail"; what about ice, diet changes - that kind of thing?)

Hi Sue,

My boss is going to the pharmacy now to get me some stronger pain killers, diet changes I have made. The cause I don't know can't say.

But hopefully the pain killers will help. She's also a migraine sufferer, and takes them and it works for her maybe it will work for me to.
