Well after 8 years of Chronic severe Migraine ( who i call Mary) , being seen by the migraine clinic in london and had many GON which didnt work i saw a neurologist who gave my gp a list of medication to work through. over a period of 2 years ive tried ALL of the medication possible , topirimate worked for a couple of years but now it is not effective any more. so i finally got a referral back to neurologist . this was a younger lady who was shocked at the state of my migraines and what my doctor ( hasnt) done.. she has now referred me to the national headache crisis centre in the west midlands, and i am being sent for botox and acupuncture. so it seems things are finally going in the right direction. my migraines of late have become more savage the pain is off the scale and nothing works to ease them. to the point ive done stupid things like shut my hands in the door just to create a different pain to take it away from my head.
