I have suffered with migraines for 22 years. No preventative medication helps. Triptains and Oxycodone help the pain. Every day I have a migraine and I take 2-3 pain pills each day. I feel tired and depressed even on antidepressants. I recently made an aptmt at Mayo. Can anyone relate to my situation? If so, did going to Mayo provide any answers or help? @lindaberry

My doctor discovered that I had encephalitis from Toxoplasmosis, because I had a "chronic unrelenting migraine". I took pain pills, tylenol, aspirin, Imitrex, and (my last resort) several glasses of wine, all to no avail, of course. I was just diagnosed and started on medication 2 days ago, so I am not better yet. Good luck with your search for relief. (p.s.- my internal medicine doctor told me my headaches were stress related. Ha ha ha. He will get a copy of the test results!)
