Hi, I'm 18 years old and I supposibly have chronic migraines. I want to know if many others out there has experienced this type of pain. I might go off topic a lot so please bear with me.
Like I said I'm 18, and have chronic migraines. I also have a anxiety disorder and mild depression. I weigh 223, and I'm 5'4". I see my doctor atleast twice a month for my migraines. She has prescribed me on Ibuprophen 800mg, but it seems that it don't work. I know I get tension migraines all the time after school, being around a lot of people, etc. Lately I've been having these really sharp jolts in my head in the most randomness places. (Mostly around my temples, forehead, and the back of my head.) I have looked them up and they were called Ice Prick Headaches or something of the sort. I feel as if there getting worse and worse and my doctor isn't realizing the pain I'm dealing with. They are really starting to affect my daily life at my school(s) (High School, and my College Courses.), and just how I live period. I also do experience neck pain at times, but i asked my doctor about it and she said something about physical thearpy because we took X-rays before and my neck looked normal.
Any ideas on how to treat at home instead of taking pills all the time? I feel like if I continue to take the pills constantly it'll affect my implant (birth control), and all my other medications.
Thank you for reading.
Hope you have a safe and happy New Years!
