I fear that my everyday and night migraines for the past 2 months are symptoms of a more serious brain illness?! I have had migraines since the age of 15, and never have I had migraines like these.
I've tried getting a second opinion in terms of treatment and medication, but to no avail. I am 23 yrs old, a university student in a loving relationship, and all of sudden I find myself writing to you because I feel isolated and helpless in the hands of the medical world.
Last week, I realised my life is spiraling down, my partner is starting to be affected intensily by my daily pain, doctors only tell me the same thing "Well there is so much we can do, here take this new drug" and I haven't lived my life like a normal young adult since...well forever ago. I never drink or smoke, I keep away from triggers, hell im probably the cleanest kid in town. And yet, I suffer immensily and am starting to stagger on my daily routine as a human.
I asked my doctor if he could prescribe me a ct-scan or some form of brain imagery to check it out, and he said "You don't need that" and proceeded to read me a poem....!!! Not only that, my eyes lately have been uncontrollably shifting rapidly from side to side sometimes for minutes at a time, without being able to stop.
Please help me, anything at this point would help.
