Title: 15.
Post by peaceloveez on Mar 12th, 2008, 9:07pm
I am 15 years old. I am a fairly typical teen. I have my good moments my bad moments, my struggles and my strengths. One thing I have been struggling with since i was about 11 or 12 is migrains. I was getting them once a month, maybe. The were hell, but i could take it. As I got older however, not only have the migrains gotten worse, the frequency has increased. I have felt blessed beyond belief because this is now my 4th day in a row with not even the slightest head ache. I have been seeing a doctor who has prescribed a pleathura of things and nothing has helped. I took a log of 18 days, 7 of them i had migrains. When I say migrain, I mean if it were not for the light and sound beyond the "comfort" of hiding underneath a blanket, I would kill myself because I have hell x10 in my head. Even the slightest sound or bit of light is amplified and pressed into my head with no mercy. In this 18 days, although only 7 days I had migrains, only 2 of these days did I have no head ache what so ever. I often wake with them, but from time to time I will get them in the middle of the day. I am writing this for two reasons. First, I want everyone to know I have sympathy for you, and I definatly feel your pain. Secondly, I am writing to see if anyone has any suggestions. I have tried maxalt, imitrex, ice packs, naproxin, motron, extra stregnth tylonol and tylonol3. I am currently on everyday topamax. I started it yesterday, and missed my dose today, so who knows what tommorow brings. I can not say if it is working or not, but if it fails, as have many many things in the past, any suggestions?

Thank you.
-Elena.
