Sep 3, 2012 · migraine type headache for more than 15 years! in Brain & Nervous System

…My only reservation with calling it hemicrania continua, is that all stories is how the pain is severe… however, my pain is not exactly severe… it wavers up and down in scale and at times it can’t be very strong but i don’t let it get severe anymore.

anyway… looking forward to any comments or similar sufferers comments.

Sep 3, 2012 · migraine type headache for more than 15 years! in Brain & Nervous System

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!
