Need advice.

Post  Kozlov on Wed Apr 10, 2013 9:54 am

Hi everyone, I can barely use the computer at the moment so ill make this as short as possible:

I never expirienced migraines before so I have no idea what to do, everything ive tryed so far makes it more painfull, no medicine has helped me so far.
I cant do any sport, I cant concentrate at work, cant use pc, phones, cant have more than 30 second conversation, if I smell anything it just makes it worse, cant eat, to make long story short, all I can do is lock myself in my room with no lights and wait there for hours, sometimes days.

I get this episodes about 15 to 25 times a month (been like this for about 4 months), I even tought of killing myself because I cant have any life like this.
Im about to lose my job because I throw up to often (I work as a sales manager so presentation and comunication is basic need).


For my young age I am very succesfull, or was, but this is ruining my life, lost my girlfriend etc.



What the hell do I do now? Ive tryed pretty much all migraine medicine, I dont drink anymore, dont smoke, no coffee, no chocolate, I´ve quitted everything that might trigger a migraine. Seen 4 different doctors and they told me its a "chronic" migraine.

The pain feels like an arrow crossing the left side of my head, from inside to outside.


Sorry if this dosnt make much sence but I cant concentrate right now.


Please help me, I cant be living like this.

Sometimes I also have a numb sensation on the right side of my body.

Have you tried natural supplements?
400 mg magnesium/day.
5000 mg vitamin D/day.
some people have benefited from Petodolax.
Also, have you tried Botox?

Yes, please post the preventative medicines you've tried and the dose if you can. Also what your abortive strategy is. Are you working with a neurologist who is a headache specialist to bring your migraines under control?

Sorry to hear you are suffering so badly! First and foremost, make sure you get a neurologist that specializes in migraines/headaches--a lot of them don't. Second, do not lose hope, you just need help, things will get better. As for abortives and rescue meds, look into Imitrex or Zomig or Maxalt, or DHE. I'd stay away from the narcotics. Hope this helps and wishing for pain-free days for you!
