I was 42 and had the worst head pain of my life on May 26, 2003. It’s July 13, 2019 and the pain has never gone away. I’ve had every single medicine, treatment, test, and been to dozens of doctors. Nothing helped the pain. I was diagnosed with migraine, occipital neuralgia (ON) and trigeminal neuralgia (TN). Peripheral nerve surgery cured ON pain! I had a total of 6 operations on my head. I still have migraine sensitivity and TN pain 24/7. After 14 years, I finally went to pain management. I am disabled and feel alone because most people aren’t this sick for this long.

I've had migraines since I can remember. As a six or seven year old I hated the sun when I had a migraine but was always made to go out because it was thought that children couldn't get headaches. As an adult no one believed me. My father in law even thought I'd been drinking because of slurred speech. I am taking sumatriptan at the first sign but it still takes time. Very frustrating.

I started getting migraines when I was in high school. My first migraine was a migraine with an aura. I felt sick to my stomach, dizzy, afraid since I couldn't see past this yellow haze that had settled across my vision. I was disoriented. I couldn't think. Coordination was a joke! These symptoms still exist, but vary widely and depend on the severity of the migraine, and what triggers it. Their length varies, as well. Some can last for a few hours, others will last for 2 or 3 days.

I feel weak and it's difficult to think clearly a day or two before my migraine. I wake in the morning with the headache and then vomiting begins. The light hurts my eyes and sometimes sounds are painful too. I have vomiting every hour or two until migraine is gone (my longest migraine has been 12 hours). Next several days I'm weak, dehydrated, nauseous, and have difficulty focusing on anything. All I want to do is sleep!

The migraine headache comes all of a sudden. It is very painful to describe; locks my head in only one direction. I have to take pain killer or energy drink that contains caffeine before the pains will reduce. But within my body system I feel weak. It is almost three years now. I am afraid my kidney will be affected due to the pain killer I have been taking. I was referred to a medical specialist but with the expensive drugs I have had no positive results.

I have had migraines for 44 years as they started when I was thirteen. I get sickness before they set in and sometimes my speech goes and/or my eyesight. If they are not hormonal and are caused by food triggers or dehydration or not eating regularly, I take two extra strong painkillers before the pain sets in. I can then function well enough to do my job and ward them off enough for me to carry on in my life. I have to eat high-class protein in my meals regularly to also control them.

It occurs usually once or twice in a week. When pain gets started, I feel like vomiting. I get weak and I’m not able to speak properly. I tried different types of medicine. I’m afraid that one day I will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. It seems that it is the only logical explanation for this pain.
