I'm so tired of waking up with a debilitating migraine which makes not be able to function as I have been able to do up until about 9 months ago, which has me completely depressed now that I am no longer able to function or retain things I use to making it impossible to concentrate or even teach as I've been able to do for the past 17 years.. Can anyone relate? Or does anyone have a way that helps them cope?

      Ive had migraines for 31 yrs and about 4 years ago they progressed into daily chronic migraines. They never go away. There isnt much out there that i haven't tried and currently my neurologist is out of options. I used to be a medical secretary for like 12yrs and then i had to stop. I could no longer work or function in my daily life. Ive been on disability ever since. Im bipolar, so depression is something that goes along with it. How i cope? I have a psychiatrist, therapist, neurologist, pain dr, and family all in my corner. I have a whole network of people to turn to. Its not for everyone i get that but it works for me. Hope this helps.

      I have migraines everyday that last ALL day long, I've tried Botox and nurtec as well as injections in my head... I'm glad that your migraines have some sort of relief... Nurtec and Ubreyla gave me some relief however I had to over take my Ubreyla to feel relief however I was taken off of it. I'm going to try a new approach using a virtual headset, I'll let you know if it helps or not.

      After years of trial and error... I do dry needling and cupping at physical therapy, I get botox from neurologist and I'm on nurtec now. The triptans just stopped working as well, I would have week long migraines and end up in e.r. or having to get multiple toridol inj. I was at about 20 migraine days a mo now I'm at about 10 to 12. Its better, but I feel it will always be frusterating
