I have migraines almost every day, at least 20-25 days a month, and cant find anything to help prevent, or decrease the frequency of them. I would really appreciate any help or information I can get to tame these down as it is getting unbearable and I can't have any sort of life sitting at home waiting for the next migraine.
I have been told by doctors that my meds from chronic back pain for the last 13 years may be the cause but they are not sure as I mad migraines before but not as frequently. I recently started weaning off the narcotics to try to stop the headaches as I would rather have constant back pain than constant migraines and I don't know what else to do to decrease or stop them.
I have been tried all natural remedies I could find and have been prescribed many things for them with no avail. I heard good things about
Botox for migraines so I tried it, I ended up with a continuous two week headache so I will never try that again. I recently started taking Migrelief as I have read many good comments about
it online with no effects yet but it takes weeks to work i guess so I am continuing it.
Most of my migraines are mild and only last a couple hours, but sometimes they last for days or even weeks at a time. They are never mild enough to function well, or at all, while having an attack. Zomig and sleep when I get the aura works most of the time for mild to medium attacks, but I obviously can't take Zomig daily. I only take it medium pain attacks and try to get away with sleep alone for more mild migraines. Usually I wake without the headache. For severe attacks only Toradol injections at the doctor work, narcotics have never worked to alleviate migraines for me.
