No she had no needles since she was about 5 years old. We have now had lumbar puncture, MRI and Ct scans and all were clear. She still has the headache and neurologist thinks they are migraine related. She is on periactin but so far the headaches are still there. We went from 1 tablet a day to now 2. One at night and 1 in the morning. Does this medication take time to build up or should it get rid of the headache immediately because although she says the pain has dropped from a 7/8 to a 3-5 it's still there. The hospital made her give the pain a number.
