I started having migraines when I was 9 years old. I would get random but severe migraines with nausea/vomiting. When I was 10 I had one for 2 months, when I was 12 I had one that lasted for 8 months. I saw countless doctors, had countless tests, and tried countless medicines. No one found anything. I started seeing a chiropractor and it kept the headaches under control, only getting a few "bad" episodes a year. In 2005 I had my wisdom teeth out, after that I started getting infections with sore throat and headaches. I went back and the dentist went back in to make sure there was nothing left behind. A week later I woke up with a fever, migraine, nausea, aches, and severe sore throat. I had a very bad infection. I kept getting sore throats/strep and infections so I had my tonsils out a few months later. Had a horrible time recovering and was on antibiotics for months, never felt better. Later still getting sore throats, very fatigued, cankersores, mouth ulcers, diarrhea, headaches. Found out I had mono. Early in 06' my migraines became more frequent and severe, soon they were constant and severe. I had to leave college and was unable to do anything. Had the whole run through of tests and drugs again. Since then I have had severe severe migraines, 30 lb. weight loss, and since Februrary I have had constant nausea , constipation, and stomach pain. The stomach stuff seems to be a different issue as no matter my head condition the nausea is always there. I am not able to leave the house, and the pain is overwhelming. I have had more tests but the doctors have no clue. If anyone has any advice or experienced similar things please let me know. It has been so frustrating and I just want to be able to live life. I know this is sort of jumbled but I was trying to touch on the most important symptoms without making it too long. Thanks!
