Hello & welcome to Healing Well. So very sorry to read about what you have been dealing with. Sounds like you have had several drs just guessing at what is going on instead of coming up with real dx.

Have you been seen by a neurologist? Here in the states many people that suffer with migraines are treated by neurologist. MRI's are also done to rule out any underlying conditions. We also have headache clinics for those that seem to not get the relief needed. There are many treatments available, it is a matter of finding what works for the patient. Botox injections are another option being used & successfully.

Please go to Drugs.com & look up the medication that you are now taking. This is a very informative site. Take care.

We are not medical professionals. We can give you a diagnosis. That must come your doc.
If you do to like the doc in Yemen, try to find another.
