I am having a very tough time at the moment.
I've had a constant migraine since around April 2015. I'm awaiting a lumbar puncture to check pressures and then a release of fluid for increased intracranial pressure.
On MST & oramorph (and warfarin) but unfortunately the morphine is not helping and I am desperate.
(Also been paying £40 a week for the last 2 months for acupuncture which doesn't work either).
Background is, I've had a blood clot in my brain previously and a brain haemorrhage previously also. And have a condition called APS and possibly Behcets.
I am constantly trying to find a solution and I've read that frankincense pure oil therapeutic grade can sometimes work for some people for migraine relief.
Has anyone used this? And if so, any idea of where I can buy it from people in the UK?
Can't express how desperate I am.
I can't find any of the therapeutic grade type online anywhere really. And hoping someone out there would know where I can get it from please.
Not coping with this horrendous, agonising pain would be an understatement.
It's taken over my life and I can't cope and I'm trying everything.
Btw, I've tried mostly everything else - occipital nerve block, amitriptyline, topiramate, anti-convulsants, aspirin etc etc.
Feeling that nobody understands anymore how bad this is for me. I thought my family understood but I'm feeling that they don't understand anymore either.
This constant pain is making me have anxiety & depression so I just keep trying to look for a way out of this pain circle I'm in.
Thank you in advance and happy new year to you all.
