    Hi abdul09310. I am happy to help in any way I can. My first advice is to see a neurologist. I have seen 2 of them and it has helped. It also depends on what they diagnose you with. My diagnosis is Hemiplegic Complex Migraine. Once you are diagnosed they can treat it properly. I am taking Propranolol and it has helped, but in my case they will never completely go away. But there are other diagnoses. MS can mimick migraine symptoms, TIA, some jaw pain can cause migraines. A neurologist can rule out everything that it is not. Also find out what triggers your migraines. Keep a detailed migraine diary. What you eat, what you smell, what you see. It will help you to stay away from those things and it will also help your neurologist in diagnosing you. My migraine triggers are: bright lights, strobing or flashing lights, strong smells, basil, caffiene, loud noises, heat (sunshine), cold. That is just some of my triggers. I hope that this will help you.

    Hi,

    I would be very careful if I were you. I do not know what this medicine is that your doctor has prescribed but please read the leaflet in it carefully. Note what the side effects are and exactly why you need to take it.

    Try natural methods first. Look at your diet and lifestyle. You need to learn how to relax deeply, very important. Stop smoking. Eat only fresh food not processed. Think if you are taking a lot of caffeine maybe? Caffeine will aggravate everything.

    I urge you to try simple natural things before allowing yourself to be put on drugs probably long term. In my experience they have never solved a thing and have often caused a lot of problems. It could be you are simply suffering tension headaches, in which case the answer is to reduce stress and rest and exercise your body properly.

    Abdul,

    1st stop smoking as it triggers migrane, this type of headache can be really intense and like me starts on the left side of the head. Im guessing you are a man which means it is more common to develop 'cluster headaches', this starts as a sharp pain in the left side of the head & effects the left eye, making it red & burning.. please read more info on cluster headaches.. they can continue for weeks or months and then you will have a break, its a very painful headache. No over the counter pain killers will help you! so please do not try to keep taking them if they have no effect as you will cause rebound headaches. I dont know the medication the doctor gave you but try not to use stong abortive medication as this also comes with lots of side effects & if used too much will bring you more headaches & problems so go easy with that stuff.

    The best soultion if  you are in pain all day & night everyday is to use a preventative medication which are trylic antidepressants like amitriplyine or notriplyine in a low dose 10/20mg which i take, they will give you no rebound headaches & will help you get through the headache period BUT the side effects for the first month can be horrible for some people, i had a really hard time with it but everyone is different, stay on the lowest dose possible, dont let doctors push you into medication or guessing what the problem is, they are not always right, the least crap you put in your body the better so just take the minimum you need to control the pain while you try to understand what is triggering the headaches? Stress is a big trigger, i suffered from aniexty which triggered my headaches, try to relax, take vitamins B2 & magnesuim, they are good to reduce headaches. Dont be afraid to find a doctor who specialises in nurology if you can. 

    Get blood tests! ask for a scan, this should be the first line of treatment before anything.. any headache which lasts longer then a few days and causes severe pain should be checked before starting medication.. ive been suffering nearly 4 mths now like you, i been in hospitals, emergency, i seen so many doctors & specialists you wouldnt believe! The truth is there is NO cure, you either find the trigger or find a preventative medication, one day you might wake up and it all be gone as quickly as it started but really try not to smoke! I also smoke and it starts the headaches off, alchol also is a bad trigger espcially if your suffering from cluster headaches... remember headaches change their form often, they can start off as tension headache, then turn in migrane.. etc look after your body.. keep learning .. hope that helps..

    Indeed, stop smoking. It kills. It will make everything worse. Then think about how to eat good wholesome clean food and take proper exercise. Such basics make a big impact.
