I have had migraines for many years rom 17 to 50 and managed to cope with it but over the last two and halve years the episode have become unbearable . They have impacted on my life to the point that I don't have one anymore , I finding it hard to work which has a knock on financial effect. I don't see my friends because I don't want to cancel due to having a migraine. I try keeping a brave face on for my family my mothers elderly and can't really understand migraines . My partner is a star but I feel so guilty , it's taken the fun out of our relationship . I've been on topiramate now up to200 mg daily I had two nerve blocks one in April and then one in May but it look like they didn't work for me so were back to increasing the topiramate and naproxen. I think it's the bleakness of it all there's no end and although I had some counciling early on this year they don't seam to understand how migraines impact on you from one day to the next.
