I'm new to the forum. I just signed up about 30 minutes ago. My sympathy goes out to all of you suffering with migraines. I am losing my mind. I have had migraines since before my teenage years but always classified it as a "Sinus Headache", well about 3 1/2 yrs ago I got a migaine and it has never gone away. So, I continue with daily migraines everyday, all day. Most recently I have been on 80 mg of Nadolol, 1000 mg of Depakote and 250 mg of Topamax now for a little over a 2 years now. I had some relief with Topamax but not much so my doctor continued to increase the dosage until I was up to 350 mg and self increased it to 450 mg a few weeks later for a couple of weeks with no relief. He took me back down to 250 mg because we were'nt seeing any results, he added 500 mg of depakote and then increased it to 1000 mg. I gave up on those meds because I was wasting a lot of money so I gradually came off all medicine about 2 months ago and now I'm just dealing with the sometimes unbearible pain. I only take rescue meds twice a week sometimes not at all for about two weeks so that I don't risk having rebound headaches. I'm setting up an appointment with a different Neuro dr. I've tried staying away from different foods but with no result. So, it's either something else or it's a large number of different foods, so I am thinking about going to an allergist for food testing. Any suggestions would be great.
