Afternoon all. Sorry for the long post but just want to explain history.
OH has been suffering from migraines for years.
He very often gets minor headaches which usually go with a nap or maybe some medication.
But sometimes he gets a very severe migraine along with vomiting and they just leave him unable to do anything, it's terrible - he looks like he's dying, seriously! They come on so quickly with no warning and mean he has to miss work and forget any plans he had.
He is suffering a migraine now, the first day he was terribly ill but now - 3 days on - he is managing to function, though he still has a bad headache.
He has been to different GP's several times and has been prescribed a variety of drugs but nothing helps overall - at the moment he has co-codamol which mong him out and Migraleve.
He has been to a specialist which hasn't helped and has had an MRI an CT scan when he suffered a head injury a few months ago which showed nothing out of the ordinary.
So, what I would like to know is - has anyone managed to find a successful ong term treatment for migraine? I am not talking about lying in a dark room and stuff when he has a migraine but something which has actually prevented or made them less frequent. I would like to gather any information which OH could maybe suggest to his GP
Thanks very much
