HELP!!!!! Im literally going out of my mind and my life is slowly crumbling around me due to these relentless migraines and headaches.
I have always suffered from headaches but over the past 3 years they have got progressively worse now resulting in a constant every day issue. I wake up with 99% of them. I can go to sleep with a headache and wake up with the same one. I can go to sleep with no headache and as soon as i open my eyes my head is beating with pain. I get weak, and extremely tired with them. Its always in the 1 spot in between my eyebrows. I just feel generally unwell with them. they can last for days and days. On the days i feel lucky enough not to have this which is approx 2 a week if im lucky i always have a sense of fullness and a very dull distant headache. My head pounds like a heart beat as if i have high blood pressure of which i havent. I have been on pitzofen didnt work, 2 different doses of ammitryptaline of which didnt work just made me really sluggish, propanolol of which do absolutley nothing and when my doc told me just to double my prescription on the 3rd day of doing so i was constantly in floods of tears, itching and felt extremely sick so went back to my original dose. Sumatriptan has been extremely effective but is getting less and less effective the more i use it and i can only take it 3 times a week to prevent rebound headaches and so im still left at work for the remaining days of not being able to take it feeling like death. Sumatriptan has now started to wear off after a few hours and on some days doenst really work at all. I have had a CT scan of which came up clear. I have had a months dose of antibiotics for a sinus infection as i was convinced this is what it was, due to the pressure i was feeling in my head but did nothing. I have borrowed money off a loan shark to pay for botox of which stopped the migraines and i felt i have hit the jackpot for a few days but i am now left with a constant distant dull headache. The intense migraines only happen once a week now of which is still a pain but i am more than happy with this compared to before. Also I have an intense headache, different to the migraines which comes and goes throughout the day. Very crazy and wierd. i wake up feeling ok and think YES this is gonna be a good day only to get this headache that just comes and goes throughout the day!!!! It can be on one side and move to the other after a nights sleep. I am also getting (daily-ish) sharp stabbing pains in head and face. Like someone sticking a needle through my head for a split second and some of them can be that painful i flinch. I get these in my head all over from the forehead to the top at the back, in my eyebrows, behind my eye, in my cheek bone, my jaw and the bone behind my ear. I am also now left with this feeling of which is now more intense of feeling like my head is going to pop!!! A feeling of extreme pressure in my head and the top of my nose. I feel like ive being standing on my head for about an hour. I have an appt with a neurologist next week of which i have waited 2 months for but im petrified he's going to sned me away and not get anything sorted and i can't go on like this. I am literally on the brink. I am very close to looseing my job due to the time off i have.....although they can't fire me for being ill and they are wonderful people to work for but theyre just frustrated with me never being in work.......my relationship is crumbling....he is frustrated as we can't do naything, can't plan to do anything in case i get my headaches and i spend all my free time when im not working in bed and he's literally just had enough as i have. can anyone please help with any advice or just anything as i am literally on the edge here.
