Getting worse

Feb 12, 2016 1:22 PM

So, I've had a problem with getting lots of headaches since I was little. My mom says I signaled to head pain before I could talk. As I've gotten older they have gotten noticeably worse in both length of time and pain intensity. In kindergarten it was 2-3 days, by 5th grade they lasted 2 weeks and I had to wear sunglasses everywhere. 7th grade was my first month long one and threw up for the first time. sophmore year I had it the for 4 days short of a year and I went to the ED to get relief but all it didmake me sleep and I woke up with it again but that a better than any of the migraine meds I was on. The tests never found anything but I've been checked for cancer and autoimmune disorders and such so I guess that's ok, I dont think knowing would help. I just turned 20 and the first thing I do is wake up and throw up, but I don't drink or use drugs other than my medical marijuana card, because it helps with the my pain to a degree, I've never found anything to take it away but it takes it down so that I can kinda function or at least eat most days but this week I've been stuck in bed or by the toilet/kitchen sink. Last night made a bed by the kitchen sink so I wouldn't have to keep getting up to throw up. I'm not sure what to do anymore. I'm so scared.

I am so So sorry what you're going threw right now. I have had migraines as well since before I could talk, according to my mother, so I know so how you feel. Since you have a mmj card I was wondering what strains you have been smoking, eating, etc lol.
I dont know exactly what else is going on with you but here's a link to some strains that have been known to help migraines. Maybe try out some of them And see of there's a not of relief. I know it won't completely go away but Maybe trying some different strains could help you pin point what you need.

I'm not, it's been 4 months of waking up and throwing up, every pregnancy test is has been negitive. I did miss my period for 2 months but my doctors said that stress can do that.

Thank you for the website! I'm always looking to lean more, I just got my card not too long ago. (My mom and doctors wouldn't treat it as a valid option but I was under 18 for a lot of them so I understand hesitation but it's silly)The strains available to me are always changing so I don't get to consistently pick one I like but I know what types. I prefer sativa strains because my brain stays more alert but it also relaxes me enouh so that I can sleep if I want/need to. I use concentrates (wax/shatter) because they hit fast and are stronger, (so if anyone wants to try them BE VERY CAREFUL it's easy get too high and that is not going to help, you will panic) and I have a vape pen attachment for them so I don't have to mess with anything and it's portable and inconspicuous.
