I hate these bloody things.
I'm now on week 3 of a migraine that varies in intensity and pain. Some days, it's only a 1 or 2 on the pain scale and I barely feel it to the point where I think it's gone. Other days, it jumps to a 7 on the pain scale and features photosensitivity and, in some cases, nausea.
I hate going to the doctor, but I'm at my wit's end. I've gone through 5 different migraines in the past 8 years because each one eventually loses effectiveness. My doctor didn't want me going on migraine suppressants because I react so strongly to medicines, but we may not have a choice anymore. At this point, I may just take some of y'all's advice and ask for a referral to a neurologist.
I hate that all of this is because of one tiny case of TBI I had 12 years ago that has now given me debilitating pain :(
