Hi I am new to this forum so was wondering if anyone can give any of their experiences of suffering with Chronic migraine/ rebound headaches. My daughter who is 14 years old as just been to see a specialist consultant regarding her constant headaches over the last 12 months. In the interim period through our GP she was prescribed propronal which was making her very sleepy and not easing her headaches.The consultant put her on 10mg of Amitriptyline at bedtime, however she was still was waken each morning with a thumping left sided headache with blurred vision. The consultant discussed with use and decided to wean her of these tablets over the next 6-8 weeks. She is still suffering these deliberating headaches on a daily basis so taken her back to the doctors today. I am at my wits end seeing her suffer from these headaches each day. She as not been to to school for the past 7 weeks due to her suffering and is starting to not want to do anything socially with her friends. The doctor as now given her Sumatriptan(50mg) to take 1 then repeat if needed after 2hours. She will try anything if it will help with the pain. But just feel that she is taking a lot of medication at a young age and that she is only a very slim in statue so worry about the effects these medication will have on her on the long term. As a parent it is very difficult to see her suffer on a daily basis. Just want her back to her old self enjoying her school and social activities. As anyone suffered these deliberating headaches at such a young age?
