I’ve been suffering for about more than 6 months now with the doctor looking into it seriously for the last 2/3. I’ve been trying Topirimate and slowly upping the dose hoping at some point something magical was going to happen with no such luck. I’m about to speak with my GP and tell her I want something else done but I’m at a loss as to what. I’m assuming I’m now going to have to wean off topirimate so I’m gonna be stuck on this for another while with no relief.
I feel like my head ache is massively affected by light, especially things like strip lighting at work which I can’t do much about, car lights at night, sun light. Etc. The thing is it’s not a sharp shooting migraine pain I get, it’s a constant headache, it never really goes away the pain and pressure just gets worse in and around my eyes. Is there anything the optician can do? Is it worth trying them again? I’ve obviously had my eyes tested and been told that my prescription is fine.
I’ve no idea what I’m doing or what I’m talking about so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
