Headaches...

Nov 08, 2010 - 2 comments

I'm so tired of all these headaches. None of the prescriptions we've tried are helping, yet my doctor doesn't seem concerned. I don't know what to do anymore. I track everything (this website has really helped with that... Combining Exercise, food and water intake). I bring all my info to the doctor every six to eight weeks and she never has anything new to offer. She's trying to help, but I don't think anyone really understands quite what this feels like. I call them headaches but when I describe them to people I'm told "No... That's a migraine". I can't tell the difference because this is how they have felt my WHOLE life. I'm so frustrated. This is really no way to live. I should be able to enjoy my life and I should be able to enjoy my days and learn when I'm at school.

Can't take it anymore!

I completely understand what it feels like. I'm a college student and there are many nights where I just dont do homework because my head hurts so badly or I have to miss classes because of the pain. I have been dealing with this for 8 years or so and no doctors have anything to offer me.  They just say "Oh it's from stress."

It's so frustrating. Yes, it's from stress, but what can you do for me??? I don't know what to do anymore. I've even participated in migraine studies that I hear nothing different from. I have found a product that helps lessen the severity though, so I use it more often than I should.
