I bet you are! By far one of the most debilitating times in my life. All the best in those other disappointing areas of you health.

Triptans did nothing for me! Began Botox every 3 months. After 6 months on Aimovig monthly self injections, they stopped working. Many trips to urgent care for shots and steroid packs. Tried CoQ10 and other natural supplements to no avail.

Finally my neurologist switched me to Emgality self-injections, I continue botox and the best thing yet…he prescribed me Cambia which is a powder abortive medicine that is mixed with water and taken upon onset of a migraine.

Now I get only 3-5 migraines at most per month. It's a tough diagnosis and sometimes can be crossed with tension and other headaches. I wish you good luck and hope this helps if by chance you hadn't heard of something.

We all certainly respond different to treatments. I would be happy to share what has worked for me but, only if you are interested. I understand it can be very frustrating.

Hi Olivia, I'm Rachel and am also a migraine sufferer. Do you mind me asking if you have explored all medical options for relief?

Welcome and curious what took you so long? It's better late than never and I'm very happy for you! All the best going forward.
