Hi all. where do I start. i have had a 24/7 migraine/headache for a decade now. I have just started using a tricyclic to "dampen" its severity and so far it has helped me get my ibuprofen use down from 3 to 6 doses a day to one or two doses.
i am upset with all doctors i see here in Australia who continue to call it migraine when it seems more like hemicrania continua. But all of them dismiss me when i ask them if it could be this and say the treatment is the same.
does anyone else here experience a 24/7 migraine like headache?
by the way... upon starting the tricyclic i have started to experience real aura migraines about once a month... this truly tells me the 24/7 headache is not actually migraine!
