I suffer from daily headaches, once or twice a week they progress into a migraine where the pain is usually an 8/9 out of 10. My Neurologist keeps swapping my preventatives in the hope that my migraines will improve however he is very reluctant to give me anything to manage the pain when the migraines become unbearable. The only medication I have to take when the pain is severe is (Naproxen 1000mg Slow Release) that doesn’t help all that much and takes several hours to kick in.
Does anyone else use anything that works well to manage the pain?
I understand doctors fear addiction in medication for chronic pain sufferers however I can’t function at all when the headaches are this bad. Any feedback would be hugely appreciated.
