Dear whom may read,
I’m 17 years old and since I could remember I’ve had headaches, but I could control them , but the older I got the worse they got and the more I couldn’t control them anymore now that im 17 I finally said enough pain having headaches 24/7 was killing me so we went to see a doctor which sent me for a ct scan and everything is clear. They tried several meds and nothing even touched just my headache that’s not including my migraines that I get. So the sent me to a children’s hospital to a neurologist who had no clue. And had nothing to tell me everything was clear and im healthy well they gave me medication which I had taken before which made me sick and I said fine I’d take it again and I ended up in the hospital 8 days later and told the er what has been going on and she was shocked they tired as much as they could to try to stop my migraine pain and nothing helped , and the next day I was so sick again I ended back up in the er , the doctor really didn’t see why I was there he gave me a shot and sent me on my way. And so we called my neurologist who told us to put me back on the medication that made me sick , and told my mother that some people just have to live with the pain. Since my Er visit my migraine hasn’t gave up I don’t want to eat or drink its so hard to sleep with the pain so I can only really sleep when my body gives out , and no one is really showing me hope I can barely get out of bed and do what a teen should do and its hard when no one knows even were to start

Any answers to what I should ask my doctor about?
