My son is 16 and is in his 10th month of a migraine level headache that never goes away, which has not responded to any medications. This is his second bout as in 2010 same time of year he got a headache that lasted about 7 months that just stopped one day. This session has been much worse. He even spent 5 days in the hospital. He can't go outside because the light hurts his eyes. Loud noises can complicate the headaches as can frustration. Kaiser has refered him to biofeedback for pain management although last year his experience with the biofeedback instructor was not the best, mostly because he didn't like how she worked, not nessicarily anything she did.We have Kaiser for our medical plan and the neurologist last year diagnosed it as new persistant daily headache and this year as chronic daily headache. We have tried many and none provided any relief except heavy duty narcotics. Once they wore off of course the pain was back. He has basically missed two years of high school and now is in a work at your own pace program which he does as he can. We have started antidepressants as he has become severeley depressed due to the headache. He distracts himself from the pain by playing video games when he can, reading, watching TV. Doing nothing makes him crazy because all he thinks about is the pain. We are really at our wits end and the poor kid's life sucks. I feel like crying half the time because I am sure there are things I should be doing but have no idea what or if I can afford them. So thanks for listening. It's heartening and saddening at the same time so read that there are other children out there living in similar situations. My heart goes out to any family suffering through this.
