  • Have you ever thought of trying alternative therapies ? Might help relieve stress which may just help the migraine type pain. When all else fails it might be something to look into ??Sorry I really can't think of anything else that would help. Have you had your hormone levels checked ? How long since the Doctor ran some blood tests just to check for other possibilitiesSamanthahttp://www.undiagnosedillness.org
