I've always kept my issues private but I need help and don't care where it comes from. I am a male and have suffered with migraines since only days after cervical spine surgery in 1997. Had second cervical implant in 2004 and the migraines became worse and have been chronic ever since. As I'm typing the neck pain is so unbearable I want to throw this computer out the door! Have tried every medication that my doctors prescribed, botox, and way too many over the counter products. Tried different diets, starved myself, ate things that I never dreamed I could even look at--let alone swallow, been to quacks who claimed they heal by touching (not including some odd chiropractors), and now I'm just pissed all the time because I cannot remember what my life was like without a G D migraine. I worked for a doctor (as his art consultant), for many years and he tried every known medication but was unable to help me. However, he did tell me that there were medications that are used in other countries that the FDA will not allow in the U.S.
This is all I can handle at the moment and would like to know if anyone out there has had similar issues and found even temporary relief. I pray there is.
