I've suffered all day, daily migraines for 8 years, that started with a thunderclap. I'm on disability, unable to work or live. Out of ideas
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
My migraines started about 8 years ago. I was healthy, in shape, working, and had no health problems at all. I was at work one day and felt like I had been hit in the side of the head and heard a loud thunderclap. I've been through numerous neurologists, so many tests, and so many treatments... all to no avail. In 2014, I spent 11 days at MHNI Head Pain Unit being tested and treated; no luck. I've tried Botox, Aimovig, triptans, supplements, CBD oil, holistic treatments, chiropractic care, massage therapy, and many more.
I've been disabled for 8 years now. I'm on Social Security Disability, and my life has basically been stolen from me by my migraines. I've lost friends and family because of it.
I'm in head pain literally every minute of every day. I wake up in pain, and eventually go to sleep in pain. I can't live like I used to because the pain is so bad. I find myself worn out much faster, I'm fatigued all the time. I've passed out from pain and hit my head multiple times. I've broken teeth from gritting them in spikes of pain. I've run out of ideas or treatments. I need help.
