Has anyone out there lost all of their friends and have no family members that can count on you for anything?  I have no one to talk to that understands the problem.  I have 10-15 migraines a month that can be accompanied by vertigo.  The vertigo can come before or after a migraine and last as long as a week.  I did not have migraines until 2003.  I have long since lost my job and am waiting on a hearing for disability.  I missed my son's wedding and needless to say, my young grandchildren hardly know me. In addition to migraines I also have fibromyalgia. My husband whom I married in Dec. 2003 tries to be understanding, but I don't think he signed up for this trip.  I could use a friend that knows what it is like to be in so much pain.  I am holding on for dear life.
I want to beat this.  Anyone have an ear?

Oh, I feel for you and your situation.  I can only imagine what you are going through. 

My husband has migraines and has been unable to leave the house without me for months now.  He doesn't drive anymore and is very nervous about being around too many people.  He is only 63 but it has taken a hard toll on him.

This is a great forum to seek a sympathetic ear as all of us have some of what you are dealing with.

Are you on any medications?  Have you seen a neurologist?

Hang in there!  We are here for you.
