I am new to this forum. I am almost 28 and haven't suffered with migraines long, other than menstraul migraines. But I just have sort of dealt with them. Recently I have been getting migraines more often. Even more recently I got a migraine that I have had for 8 days now. It pretty much left me debilitatated. The doc prescribed me some Imitrex which did nothing. Then I got a shot of Demoral and Phenergan, which let me sleep peacefully and wake up with a miagraine still. He gave me some samples of Relpax, which i dug into and helped, but the price tag is so high, I am not sure I can depend on that daily. He also put me on 25 mg of topamax to help prevent them. So far I still have a migraine and am at my wits end. I guess I am scared because my mother has gotten a migraine every day for as long as she can remember.
I did do some research as well on vitamins, so I did up my B-2 and magnesium and am taking feverfew and seratonin. Hopefully I will find what will help my body. I think the biggest thing is to cut out the caffiene. I am not a coffee drinker, but do have my fair share of diet soda, but that is coming to a quick stop. I will do what it takes to get and stay pain free.
I don't have questions, just sort of venting and looking for support.
