The 18 year headache that has ruined my life.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
For the better part of 18 years I have had one headache that hasn't stopped. It varies in intensity from almost bearable to debilitating pain, severe vomiting, completely incapacitating. I have had to quit my job because I never know what my head is going to do. The spike happens in seconds. I'm talking one minute and the next minute I'm on the floor grabbing my head. It's not a good professional look. I had a good job and my family was taken care of. Now I pick up side jobs when my head is just bearable to help out. I have had more MRI's, catscans, and every test. They all show nothing. I have seen top migraine doctors on the east coast at John's Hopkins and Crozer Chester migraine clinic. I have been on every concoction of medication and nothing works. I have tried acupuncture, nerve blocks and botox. Nothing.
I have stopped all medications. Mainly because nothing worked and our medical insurance stinks.
I just want an answer. Some type of relief. I'd like to be able to live again.
