I am a 37 year old female who suffers from migranes. I started having headaches since the age of 11. I have since been told that they have changed to severe migranes. I had 2 stents place in my brain because my neurologist advise me that I had elevated pressure in my brain. At first he didn't want to do it, until he saw me crying because I was in so much pain.
Since I have had the stent for the past 2 month's my life has not been the same. I was on 9 different medications that didn't do anything but cause me to sleep. I have had several lumber punctures, which have not work. I even got a second opinion and was told that my brain was not the issue as the problem was due to the swelling of my right and left optic nerve. The doctor indicated that they were severely swollen that were bulging in they back of my head, and that is what was causing the serve pain in my head. The doctor told me to follow up with my optomologist. Needless to say I did, and explained what I was told by the second opinion doctor. The optomologist brushed everything off, and was totally in disagreeance of what I was told.
The only good thing about that visit was he took me off of all the medication I was currently on, because he indicated that I was on too much of it and there was no telling which ones were working. To this day I am still having painful migranes, and none of the doctors I am seeing are listening to me. All of my cat scan and MRI are all coming back OK. I am so tired of going in and out of the ER. I don't know if there is any relief. I forgot to mention that I have been off of work ever since my procedure, and was admitted 6 days after my procedure back at the hospital due to sharp throbbing pain in the back of my head, as well as me being dizzy and unable to walk.
I just want to be pain free😢
