All my life, I've had migraines. A few years ago they started to get worse and came more often. I had been to see doctors but after a few tests, they always tell me there is nothing they can do for me. This past October, I began to have a constant headache that I can't seem to get rid of. The doctors I've been to since then have tried several headache medicines with no results. I finally go to see a Pain Management Specialist and he diagnosed me with chronic migraines which he said I would live with the rest of my life. He tried a nerve block which didn't help. When I told him that it didn't help, he also gave up and said there is nothing he can do. He put me on flexeril 5mg. On a scale of 1-10, my headache usually goes from 3-5 off and on all day but when it gets really bad like an 8 or so, i'll go to the ER for relief. They treat me like I'm a drug addict trying to score pain killers. I tell them all I want is something that will atleast make the headache go down to where I can tolerate it. I've tried to get in to see a neurologist but nobody in our state will see me unless my scans are positive. All my scans come out negative. I've tried just about every headache medicine out there including anti-depressants and none of them work. I cannot work because of my headache. Flouresant lights make my head worse. I can't drive anymore either. My memory has started to get worse and my word association is slowing going down hill. I'm worried what will become of me if I don't get help. I can't even think straight anymore. I'm 24 years old and got married in April. My husband has been trying to help me find somebody who will see me and help me deal with this but nobody wants to see me. The doctors in our area act like they just don't care. My husband and I researched cluster headaches and believe that could possibly be the culprit. I wish somebody would tell me what to do about all of this because I'm lost. I just want to go one day without a headache. I don't even remember what those days were like anymore. My husband has to do all the cooking because my memory is so bad, I'll forget that I am even cooking and I end up burning things. I can't think of words most of the time that I want to say and I have to end up asking my husband to help me think of the words I want to say. It feels like I'm not 24 anymore. It feels like my brain is going back and its getting younger. I don't like this at all. I can't even do simple math. I was trying to get my GED but I guess with this headache problem I never will. If anybody has any ideas on what I can do, please let me know because I'm lost in the dark with no signs of light.

The odds are 1000 to one against you if you just go out and buy any old b12. Check out the symptoms at http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?t=62327 and then come discuss it at http://forums.wrongdiagnosis.com/showthread.php?t=9948&page=1000 Also, if it isn't b12 or even if it is, a chiropractor might give you some relief.

  • Are your headaches worse when you wake up or do they wake you from sleep? Mine did, and after 33 years of suffering, a doctor diagnosed intracranial hypertension (high pressure in the brain). It can cause the other problems you are having, such as problems finding words, etc.Now I take Acetazolamide SR 1000 mg 2xday and I almost never have a headache.
