I am a 21 year old female-very healthy-no drinking, drugs, very active, healthy eating. I was diagnosed with chronic migraines in May of 2013 and while away at college I would get the occasional headache but nothing that wouldn’t go away with Excedrin Migraine. In May 2014, I came back home from college and began getting very bad migraines that would not go away, even after multiple ER visits with IV Migraine cocktails. Throughout the summer, I began to feel weak, very dizzy, and nauseous in addition to the constant migraines. I was prescribed Topamax and then Nortriptyline and then Propranolol and Cyproheptadine and had a terrible reaction to all medications even at half of the lowest dosage. For the entire summer I was bedridden and took a medical leave from college for the Fall 2014 semester. I have had a ton of blood work done and an MRI in May of 2013-both showing up clean. I have been to multiple ENT, headache specialists, diagnostic centers, chiropractors, and neurologists and no one has been able to help. I have an appointment with an allergist in December. If anyone has any ideas as to the next step I should take or any similar experiences that would be greatly appreciated as I have been debilitated for the past five months.
