I am a 21 f who has had migrianes since puberty. Over the last 2 years they have only got worse. The last few months I get 2-5 a week, sometimes lasting for days. I have seen doctor after doctor. I have tried the following meds:
Imitrex tabs/ns/inj, maxalt melts, zomig ns, relpax, frova, DHE inj, Migranol, Propanalol, Nadalol, Lamectal, Topamax, Depacote, Dilantin, Trileptal, Serequel, Geodon, Prozac, Lexapro, Flexaril, Lyrica, Neruotin, amitriptilyn, Lidocain Patches, TMJ surgery, Klonopin, Xanex, Valum, Midrin, Prometrium, birth controll, Toradol, Ultram, Ultracet, Fioricet, Darvocet, Hydrocodone, Percocet, Stadol NS, (Nubain & phengergan Shots at ER) and probably some more. Physiatric care, relaxation, hot baths, cold/dark rooms.
None helped the Migraines for more than a couple of months.
I have had anaphalatic reactions to the Lamectal, propanalol and prometrium.
I have had to withdraw from college 3 times, lost jobs and have no social life anymore.
Doctors have even said "its all in your head" and they will stop when you decide for them too...the nerve. I wish it was that easy. Also, they don't want to give me pain meds for rescue hardly...what do I do??
