Hey guys just updating you

So three weeks ago I started having severe migraines. I went to the ER last Sunday and the gave me three different meds. None of which worked. Yesterday I went to my psychiatrist and he said the migraines could be happening because I have too much Dopamine in my system. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter which allows you to feel happiness. He prescribed Amotriptoline and I don't have it yet but I should soon. My primary doctor gave me propanal to help get rid of the headaches that is helping a little but they are still not gone. So I am hoping and praying that I get some relief and that something works. Thank you guys for being supportive. I hope you are all doing well.

I hope the new medications work. I take amytripiline. I take it at night to sleep. If you take it in the day, depending on dose, it may knock you out!

I hope you feel better soon. Prayer your way

I was on a low dose of amitriptyline for years to stop migraines and it helped tremendously....I went from 2 to 3 migraines a week to one every other month and now with my trigeminal neuralgia I'm on a much higher dose and it's one of the only meds that works for my pain.
I hope it works for you as much as it has for me

After my car wreck last year I had a migraine for a few months. My Neurologist who treated my migraines before wouldn't see me because the wreck triggered this one. (sigh). My pain doctor have me an occipital nerve block and that at least took care of the migraine. I still get them but they don't last that long. If they linger for more than a couple of days I get another block. Considering going in for a nerve burn (radiofreguency) to see if it would stop the migraines.

My pain drawing went wrong and I couldn't change it....
My lower back is painful from s1 to L2 this is why I have had rhysolisis injections.
My migraine and head pain is always accompanied by neck pain on both sides and right shoulder pain. I think it could be a trapped nerve but with chronic head ache and chronic migraine. Docs booked me with the headache clinic and for a scan of my head. But waiting list....!!!
My friend came and gave me a joint of cheese cannabis and this was amazing relaxing and even relaxed my head for the evening. But the next day it was back.
I'm not get the blurs in my eyes but have pain in the rear of them.
I get really bad zigs when moving.
These drive me mad. I've always got pain on the rear of the top of my head. Sometimes it makes u feel like taking every tablet in the house....
