Hi I'm Brian and I'm new here I've been suffering from migraine since I was 14 and am now 25 but my doctors are unsure which medication I should be on and I'm not to sure what to do its so difficult getting though the day sometimes ill start by sweating and feeling not the small headache the day before then it happens and I cant even get out of bed and vomiting seems to be a big thing when i got my first migraine 11 years ago I would only have four a year but now it happens every week and last anything from 4 to 48 hours I just need some sort of advisor about anything I should be asking my doctor. Its really difficult and despising because I work and have to have a lot of time of lucky my manager is very understanding but I sometimes feel I can't go out with friends or family just in case I have a really massive attack please anyone with any sort of advisor please reply thank you.

Have you been to a diagnositic specialist in neurology at a major hospital.?

I ended up going to John Hopkins in Md to get a final dx and a great combo of meds.

My daily pain level is usually a 3-4 and my meds have only been adjusted 3x's since.

I know see a doc at Thomas Jefferson in Phila.
