    Hi Michelle05502,

    I'm in exactly the same boat. The only difference is I take Ritzatriptan. It might be that you need the propranolol dose upping slightly . If you have been using Sumatriptan and it usually works, I would not give this pain relief up. However maybe another member of the Triptan family might help. My migraine is getting worse and at the moment the propranolol is holding it under some sort of control, but not irradicating them. I know how debilitating this is and how demoralising it is to live in a semi permanent migraine, but take heart, I know this has to pass at some point. The doctor needs to take you seriously and provide you with (at the very least) adequate pain relief . When I know I'm going to have a bad migraine or if it requires another Triptan, I am also able to take a Diclofenac suppository which gives good pain relief.

    You are not alone. X

    I don't get migrains but you should seek another medication to take and get off the ones that are not working for you. 

    Hope you feel better take care.

    Hey, you arent boring anyone, as I am finding out this is so horrible and quite debilitating.  I used to suffer from migraines, but nothing like yours.  I have seen somewhere and I cant remember where but migraines are linked to lack of seratonin and so is anxiety/depression.  So my theory is that a lot of migraines are hormone related so is there anything that can be taking for hormones/migraines.  After all more women suffer from migraines than men, just wondering if there is a link between it all. x
