I'm afraid your doctors are right. There is no cure.

What meds are you taking? Do you have anything to abort the migraine attack, such as triptans?

Are you taking/have you tried any preventative medication?

Hi and Welcome,

I am glad you decided to post- there are a lot of great people who give great advice here. I am sorry you are going through this.

I know you mentioned pain management- and I am glad you hav3e access to that. Are you seeing a neurologist or headache specialist for the migraines? If nothing else, he might have some ideas about preventatives or abortive for headache. Also, I am not sure what kind of pain meds you are on, but maybe you could change the current ones out- there may be something that will make you less groggy. For example, I tried the duragesic patch and it did noting except make me a zombie, but long acting morphine worked well. It is just a thought. (I had to stop most of the pain meds due to a fainting disorder- now on Tylenol 3 and tramadol for pain.)

I hope this helps.

Pain free days,
sailingm
