Complicated migraine

Mar 25, 2018 4:21 AM

I'm suffering from migraine pain since I was 12 years old and from last 4 to 5 years I'm diagnosed with Hypertension, which makes my situation worse than you imagine ,. So friends can you please resolve this problem , cause sometime i think about to suicide! And I already attempted! Many times! 😭 ,

I don't know what to do?

Have you tried any medications such as Amitryptiline, Topirimate, Gabapentin, or Naproxen? If not, I would suggest you talk to your doctor about whether or not you can take any of these medications.

I have migraines too and the one thing (besides medication) that helps me is tapping on the area where a migraine is. The tapping creates vibrations that confuse the nerve signals, so the migraine pain signals aren't sent to the brain.

Ambrielle, yeah Yes I have been using Amitriptyline for the last 4 years! But I don't think it's related to my pain or complicated migraine!

I used to take fioricet for migraines but I have not got one in a while! With fioricet I would have a rebound headache for 2 days after but it was very mild compared to real deal!If they were really bad I would go to ER! Have you had an MRI done on your head! It might be something else!

Mar 26, 2018 4:47 PM

Yeah I had MRI! And it's Normal, but I have such pain as you defining in here like mild,! But my pain is too severe than yours cause in pain time, it's feels like my head gonna blast, and this tingling or numb sensation in all over my left side of the body, feeling is more dangerous and there pain makes it worse when you know that it never gonna stop till 2 or 3 weeks and it's continues more than 3 weeks without any break or something like fluctuating time period,! So my situation is worse!

It sounds like you are having hemiplegic migraines. These migraines are severe and occur with unbearable severe migraine pain, in addition to weakness or numbness on one side of the body.

Mar 26, 2018 5:24 PM

Wow What are you doing for your headaches and do you have good and bad days?

Mar 26, 2018 6:45 PM

Av9, are you seeing or able to see a headache specialist?

Mar 29, 2018 11:32 AM

Av9, due to the severity of your headaches, I strongly suggest that you try to see a neurologist or a headache specialist (a neurologist who focuses only on headaches). They will be able to tell you exactly what's going on, why, and may be able to help you.

From my understanding of headaches, it sounds like you either have hemiplegic migraines or Cluster Headaches. Cluster headaches are called "suicide headaches" because they cause unimaginable pain that makes the sufferer think about suicide. Cluster headaches need to be diagnosed by a specialist because there are strong medications that can sometimes help, and some studies have shown that oxygen therapy during headache attacks can reduce the severity and length of the attacks.

I am showing the neurologist, but now he does not understand my point, but he has asked me to do some tests , but in the meantime I have a lot of pain. 😭

Mar 29, 2018 1:56 PM

Hey Boo, well for this I haven't any options to do something to rid of it, cause as I said before it's not like normal pain, and I clearly mentioned that pain in my Prototype of this app and here in front of you guys, so please tell me what to do?

Mar 29, 2018 2:10 PM

And I need your help, because I ask my doctor and when I tell them about my pain, then they act like they are surprised to see me, with such Pain or feelings of tingling, numbness, etc. feelings in my left side of the body, makes their work more hard to do, and maybe that's why, this time they suggest me tests, so please guys 🙏 please if you have information about my situation or pain so please help me, cause it's feels like already dead inside but trying to living from the outside.... please

Mar 29, 2018 2:17 PM

and sometimes I wasn't able to reply your post because of my this pain, or replying your messages in late, so sorry for this, but please understand my life, or dead life!😞😞

If you are in a lot of pain can you go to the hospital? Maybe they can keep you under observation and run tests on you!
