Prayers to all!
I’m on day 100 of a migraine. I have tried every med combination in the book 📚
5-6 hospitalizations for IV DHE. That temporarily brings the pain down to a 5-6.
Most days I live with a 6-7 migraine. Next week I’m trying deeper nerve blocks
Under sedation. I believe the pain is coming from my neck though. Each day is
Very long. Trying to see the brighter side of each day. This website is remarkable!
I’ve been out of work, may not be able to go back. That saddens me. confused

Best wishes to all that fight any headaches !
I’m in the medical profession and I still haven’t found a way to make them go away.

I am currently on day 14. This is my 1st time to ever experience anything like this. I have an appointment with an neurologist next month but am constantly struggling with what is the right next step. I have been to the ER 3 times and been found out I am highly allergic to meds like Imetrix. My nurse practitioner can not help me any further and I'm confused and in major pain. And direction and wisdom is appreciated.

Do not give up finding neuro that can help you.
Ask about lidocaine treatment thru the nose. I get them
Every three weeks, it lowers my pain level to around 4 on most days.

Peace and strength

I suffer from migraines that can go forever if untreated. Fortunately I get painless migraines, but they are not very nice all the same, as there are other bad symptoms, such as lack of ability to concentrate on anything, and lethargy.

I have also cured my aura/migraine problem. I know what the triggers are. Maybe some of you will benefit from what works for me. The triggers for my migraines are Chocolate, red wine with lots of skin crushed into it, natural raspberry flavouring, Sulphur Dioxide (SO2), and high GI food in the evening. Sometimes there is an x factor that I cannot identify.
If I am getting serial auras and migraines, then I find that two of the triggers are actually the cure, and I can stop them. I'm not sure why - you can google hormesis if interested, as that may be part of it, or otherwise it might change some sort of cycle.

So if I eat about 20 grams of milk chocolate before lunchtime, and have 100 mls of red wine at about 5 or 6 pm - with a drop of hydrogen peroxide in it (google that - most wine stores sell it in little dropper bottles for those with SO2 sensitivity), then I will be migraine free and the chain will be broken.

I hope this cures somebody. I came across the cure by happenstance, and was very surprised, as I felt I was being naughty and silly. In reality it was helpful experimentation.

The other thing I do that offers a lot of relief/fast recovery in the mornings after an aura/migraine, is I chew (really really chew and swallow) a level teaspoon of brown/black linseeds, take one or two Ibuprofen tablets, and take about one eighth of a magnesium citrate supplement capsule (about 100 mg or so, I open the capsule and poor most of it out, then close it again and swallow with the Ibuprofen). If I have too much Magnesium Citrate, I get really really tired.

Good luck everybody
