Although friends, family and employers try to understand and sympathize with us they have no idea how really feel and our symptoms. I feel very isolated, and at times, ask why me. On 1 occasion. I said to the person concerned, that my mildest migraine would probably knock them off there feet. I my self have had them sonce my teens due to study. I started taking an over the counter migraine tablets, but was eventualaeventually talking an exssive amounts by a friend to consult my doctor who after numerous tests diagnosed migraine. Occasionally through the years I have had at times where I been mimigraine free months even years. But over the last 20 or so years the intermission has become less. Now I rarely get a few weeks without them. On quite a few occasion I have been hospitalized, on all occasions I have been sent home, just been and told it's a migraine. For the past 10 years I have been a neurology patient. My migraines a so very severe they are , and are controlling my life. I have just had 1 that lasted over 3 weeks, gradually did subside but not go away. Now I just feel from a medical point of view I'm at the end of the road. The neurology dept have run out of medications that they can proscibe, and say there is nothing else they can do. This is devasting. They just say keep taking my tablets prescribed. I too have a problem with my brain arteries ( arteial isscaemia). At times I have even cocontemplatedcocontemplated suicide, but then think of my family. I try to ex plain to people thatsthat It is like having an un-exploded bomb in my head.
