I have been having a severe 'migraine' for over 3 months now. It is a constant dull pain that never ceases and flares up at random points during the day. these flares honestly feel like someone is stabbing a screwdriver into the left side of my brain and twisting slowly. This happens at least 8 times a day and is hell in school, especially when I'm trying to do my work. Along with the 'migraine', my balance is failing, my memory has become non-existant, my speech is messing up and I feel tired and dizzy 24/7. The GP diagnosed me with migraines last month and I now have to take 3 Propranolol a day. I can't have anything stronger as I'm only 14, but the Propranolol doesn't help at all. No matter what pain medication I take, it refuses to stop. She now thinks it's tension headaches, and I am so frustrated with her. Who decreases their diagnosis when I tell them how bloody painful this is? UGH. Anyway, does anyone know what it could be?
