I have been suffering for about 6 weeks and was only diagnoised about 2 weeks ago. I am now on 300mg Carbamazepine. I don't have the typical symptoms as I get the pain in both sides either seperately or at the same time and have a pressure type pain in my temples between attacks, which I have to say the carbamazepine does seem to be helping to ease. My triggers are washing my hair, using the electric tooth brush and the wind or cold draughts. I have switched back to manual tooth brush which solves that trigger however I am having issues avoiding the other 2. The main one being cold draughts. When I go outside I wear my winter hats, which does get some funny looks but seems to work. So I thought I would try going back to work today, however I discovered that the air con in the hospital I work in has been my trigger as as soon as I felt it hit my head I got an attack and ended up going home without even clocking in and am now suffering from several attacks. How to I manage to avoid the cold draughts and work? I have no control over the air con either and wearing a hat is not permited as I am a receptionist. Does anyone have any advice?
Thanks in advance
