I kid you not...I had one month...September of course...my BAD month, I had migraines that last the entire month and 3 days into October...I had 33 days straight of Migraines. So, please don't for one minute let someone make you feel like you aren't having migraines when you feel you are.
Now, you may also have different types of headaches...like mixed headaches such as migraines and tension headaches (mixed headaches) or things like New Persistent Daily Headaches. I am going to post either today or tomorrow a list a brief description of different types and maybe that will help you out a little bit.
My suggestion is to keep a diary (as always), get on a good preventative and take your ABORTIVE medicine ASAP.... a new study has shown that most people are not taking their medicine whether it be their preventative or abortive as prescribed!
I keep a strict headache journal...so I can keep an eye on my triggers, I take Topamax (200mg) Inderal (80mg) daily, I take birth control (without the inactive week-to reduce menstrual migraines), I watch what I eat...exercise regularly...nothing extremely strenuous (walk with the dog or something "casual") and SLEEP REGULAR SLEEP PATTERNS....
Let me know how things are going? Alright?
