There is such a thing as daily migraines. I have been diagnosed by both my family doctor and neurologist with Chronic Daily Migraines. The neurologist I see is quoted to be the top neurologist in British Columbia in the treatment of migraine headaches.
The person who told you that daily migraines don't exist is obviously not very well versed in headaches, especially migraines. He / she might want to consider reading some of the medical journals containing studies and research on headaches.
I recently read a book called Heal Your Headache. The 1-2-3 Program. It is written by a neurologist, though I can never remember his name. He speaks about the fact that many doctors mis-label headache patients as whiners, chronic drug seekers, depressed and other horrible names. The challenge is that doctor's don't really know what causes headaches, each person's situation is unique and the medications can make the situation worse.
Doctors often label their headache patients even though the research does not support this. Do you call the doctor everytime you have a headache? I don't usually end up in the doctor's office until I've had a headache for weeks and I'm ready to take drastic measures if someone doesn't do something for me. I take responsibility for my headaches, often too much, feeling guilty when I get them. I live life doing my best to avoid situations, foods and other triggers that cause them.
The author of the book explains that doctors mis-label patients or tell them things don't exist because they don't have an answer. Some doctors suffer from a God Complex and if they can't fix you or explain your problem then they would have to admit they're not God. It's much easier to blame you or tell you it doesn't exist.
Sorry this message is so long. This is a subject that's near and dear to my heart. I get tired of being treated like I'm blowing things out of proportion, I just have a headache. There are good doctors out there and with enough perserverence they can be found. I'm adamant that I'm not going to feel guilty anymore about having headaches.

I try and remember this each day I have a headache that I'm not sure I can overcome.
