I am a 22 (soon to be 23!) year old female and I have been suffering with headaches since last October. I have literally taken every step to try and get rid of them.. I have had my eyes tested, a CT scan, changed my diet (which wasn't too bad anyway) by cutting out caffeine and chocolate, seen an ENT specialist as well as a neurologist too. They have confirmed that it is 'chronic migraine'. Fortunately for me, I don't (and hopefully never will!) suffer with the aura aspect of a migraine. Even though I am getting somewhere I sometimes feel at a dead end with it all.. and it might sound silly, but I genuinely cannot remember what it feels like not to have a headache or a dull ache somewhere around my neck and forehead.
I have been prescribed beta blockers to prevent the pain.. I have been taking them for just under 2 weeks and I haven't felt a massive difference. I am completely aware you need to be taking them for some time (6 months I believe?) before you can fully notice if they work or not. I was just wondering if anybody else has been in my position and whether beta blockers have worked for someone.
Trying to stay positive, even though sometimes all I want to do is crawl into a hole and cry for a week!
