My Migraines

Hey all, I don't know about all of you, but I'm so sick of getting migraines.  I get them so bad that I end up in the hospital for days at a time in order to break the cycle.  I have been hospitlized three times now since Jan 06.  I have to go to the Diamond Headache Clinic each time, and I go down every 6 to 8 weeks just for a check up.  They have me on so many meds that I don't even know what I'm takin any more.  I take a handfull in the morning and a handfull at night.  I think I have 12 or 15 diff meds that I take, no not all for migraines, but the majority is for migraines.

Some days I would just love to take and rip my head off of my sholders and throw it away.  Since my last stay at the hospital Jan 07, I have had a daliy headache and a migraine 80% of the time.  It makes it hard to go to work with one, but I do regardless of having a migraine or not.  I just wish there was something out there that really did work to get rid of them once and for all.

Have you been tested for food allergies?

Sounds like you have it bad. I suffer from cfs/M.E. and have had a constant severe headache for about 3 1/2 yrs with no break! Just change in intensity. I cannot work because of them but gradually starting to do more. I feel for you and sympathise. What is this diamond headache clinic? Where is it?

Hang in there!!!
