Hello, I'm fourteen years old going on


Q: Hello, I'm fourteen years old going on fifteen in one month. In grade 6, when I was 11, I started getting headaches once every two weeks, they weren't too severe so I was able to deal with it. In grade 7, they started to get worse, I would get them by sensitivity to light and sound. And I would get them once every week and a half. In grade 8 they got much worse, they would happen 1-2 times a week, and they would be much more severe, where I'd have to stop what I'm doing until the ibuprofen or acetiminophen kicked in. These migraines, (yes migraines, that's what my doctor told me they've become in Grade 8), have been taking over my life. Now I'm in Grade 9, my migraines have been terrible, in the beginning of Grade 9, my doctor said that I should start taking Vitamin B12 every day to prevent these migraines. I would then get one every 1-2 months, and that was amazing. I recently 2 months ago forgot to bring it home from school for the weekend. I then had a migraine on saturday night. And I took Advil and I was fine. After that, until now I started having migraines again. They are getting worse and worse, they became once every 2 weeks, to once a week, and now it's every single day, it is the most terrible thing ever. And I still do and did take B12. This past week it has been every night, it usually starts at around 2:30PM while I'm at school and worsens around 6:00PM. Tylenol and Advil don't work on me anymore. Last night my migraine became so painful to the point where I just needed to pass out, my migraines was in the back of head/neck. It then travelled/grew to my left eye. It was the most excruciating pain I have ever felt in my entire life, I felt a few symptoms around 6:00 PM so I took Tylenol and the symptoms wore down but I feel them coming again. I have a great diet, I get 8-10 hours of sleep every night. My mother gets migraines too. Is there any way to fix this? I can barely focus in school, and it's ruining my life and getting worse by the second. What do I do? Please help me.
