I have been having migraines for 25 yrs, in a variety of forms, but 6 months ago they completely changed and I am in almost constant pain. I do have pain free days, but they don't last long, if I don't have a migraine, I have a headache. I know all about headaches from too many pain killers, so if my migraine doesn't go with 2 days of pain killers I don't take any for another 2-3 days. I am now limited to paracetamol, tramadol (neither of which work) or a triptan, I am trying my 3rd different one this year.
I have seen a neurologist who suggested a long list of preventative meds, nothing has worked so far. I am on HRT, clonidine, high dose magnesium and multi vitamins to see if that will help.
I am just coming out. from a 9 day run of migraine. I really don't know how much more I can take.
Any one any other ideas/suggestions ????
