I started with basilar migraines in 2011, on September 16 2015 this turned into chronic migraine with pain and symptoms all day every day. It flares up into really bad attacks which literally has me banging my head on the floor. I was off work for a long time, have gone back but it is a huge depressing struggle getting through every day. Also in danger of losing my job because I have had three absences in one year. If possible when I'm off work I try to pay back the hours rather than be put down as sickness absence. Was taking topiramate, now on propanol and having Botox injections in my head. GPs I have found to be very dismissive of the amount of pain you feel and symptoms.
