migraines ! - March 14th 2012, 05:32 PM

Hi !

So I've gotten headaches before, bad ones, but nothing like this. Around a year ago, they started getting more intense ... they would only last a couple hours .. only about once or twice a month, so i just slept it off. i wasnt born with any illness, and have never had serious head trauma. sure, i've fallen before and hit my head... i'm a gymnast! but nothing serious . anyways, around january i noticed that i saw these spots in my vision, particularly when i looked at lights. they were like ... splotches . then about 20 minutes later i got this MIGRAINE! its really bad... it feels like someone is shooting out your brain over and over but you live through it so its torture. i cant walk, cause i just get so dizzy. i've experienced terrible nausea and thrown up before. i've had 6 since january. and theyre getting more often . i'll get one almost every week now.

so we went to see a pediatric neurologist. He put me on a daily medicine ... but the problem is NOTHING is helping ! i've been on toradol, imitrex, prednizone, sumatriptan, amitriptyline, and EVERY oer the counter medicine you can think of. the only thing i havent taken is asprin because children can get reyes syndrome . no food is triggering it . nothing .

has anyone ever ahd this ? i've been to three different doctors and nothing works .


I wanna fly. So I do gymnastics instead.

I'll just keep holding on to what i believe and oh I believe in you. Give me the strength for the fight and the heart to believe cause I've got to believe in you. I feel so alive.

^^ yeah I thought of that too but the neurologist said thats probably not it if nothing particularly stressful is happening ...

i'm thinking it may be linked to my eating disorder, which i'm trying hard to recover from but refuse to get help from someone. i dont want people to know ... its just private. anyway, i still cant find anythig that'll help them ! i'm thinkig maybe caffine?

Caffeine will most likely make them worse, but it's worth a shot. Also, chocolate helps some people and makes them worse for others.

Do they come at random times or after sitting around while or being real active? You may also be triggered by a food or drink.

Also, your ED could definitely have something to do with the migraines. It might be because you are straining your body doing this. I do suggest getting help, of course. It's alright to ask for help and shouldn't be something to be embarrassed or ashamed of.

I suggest trying to eat at regular times (even if they aren't full meals). Just so your body has SOMETHING consistently.
