Any suggestion to a new headache-migrainer would be appreciated!
I just turned 40 and have had chronic daily headaches which lead to migraines daily for about 1-2 years. Never had problems before so why now?
My primary dr gave me pain pills but that's not a solution. Went to a neurologist who gave me an mri and eeg test but it's all clear. She put me on Topomax but it didnt do much so I stopped.
Had nasal surgery thinking that might cause headaches but no relief. I go to a chiropractor occasionally and see a massage therapist once a week. It seemed to really help for awhilel but now they are back with a vengeance.
I have been trying to keep a food diary and headache journal but can't seem to narrow down any triggers!
So a new neurologist told me to get off caffiene and stop taking the ESGIC + tablets my primary dr gave me. It's been 3 weeks with a migraine everyday.
I take Maxalt and Imitrex when I can but as everyone probably knows you can only get 6 of one and 9 of the other a month. Why?
I just tried accupunture yesterday for the first time and it seemed great but now another headache. She suggested it might take several treatments before I see if I can feel a difference.
Is there any end in sight? Could my being about 250 and 5'11" be a problem? My cholesterol is good but low good chl. I found out today no diabetes but high trygylerides of 225.
I keep thinking there has to be a reason for these migraines. They are taking away any form of life I know of and I cant see a future with daily headaches.
Any help or input would be greatly appreciated. Any suggestions for tests I might try would be a Godsend. Dr's today dont seem to suggest anything unless I bring it up.
