Hello, i am a mother at her wits end!! My son is 12 yrs old. He was dropped on his head 3 years ago by the coach at football practice. 2 weeks later, he started screaming from excruciating head pain. The ER at Childrens Hospital diagnosed him with Post Concussive Syndrome. He missed 5 months of school, until he awoke one morning with no pain. I was worse at night, he couldn't lie down. Since that time he has been diagnosed with chronic migraines.The pain is still excruciating at night when he tries to lie down. He has missed 4 months or more from school during the last 3 school years. Neurologist has prescribed Topomax,4 a day,Amitryptiline, 2 a night and indomethacin, 50 mg every 6 hours. But he still missing at least 2 weeks out of school a month. No relief. His pain is in the forehead area and the top of his head is sore to the touch. he has no classic migraine symptoms!! Medicine does not work!! Any input at all would be appreciated!!
