Intense and Severe Migraines

Patient

Q: HI MY NAME IS COLIN AND I AM WRITING THIS FOR MY GIRLFRIEND Vicki WHO IS IN THE HOSPITAL RIGHT NOW. MY GIRLFRIEND WHO IS 24, HAS NEVER GOT MANY HEADACHES MOST HER LIFE. FROM DECEMBER 10.2010 TO PRESENT, SHE HAS BEEN GETTING THESE VERY INTENSE AND SEVERE MIGRAINES AND HAS HAD TO BE BEEDRIDDEN AND LOOSE HER JOB FOR OVER A YEAR NOW BECAUSE OF HOW CONSTANT THEY ARE EVERY OTHER DAY. SHE HAS BEEN GETTING VERY INTENSE DIZZY SPELLS WITH THEM AS WELL. WE HAVE BEEN TO THE HOSPITAL EMERGENCY OVER THIRTY TIMES BECAUSE THEY GET SO BAD. HER DOCTOR HAS TAKEN CAT SCANS AND X RAYS AND THEY SAY EVERYTHING LOOKS GOOD. I BEG TO DIFFER. SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT SUFFER FROM MIGRAINES AND THEN STARTS GETTING THEM EVERY OTHER DAY IS ENOUGH COMMON SENSE TO KNOW THAT SOMETHING IS NOT RIGHT AND VERY WRONG. HER DOCTORS GIVE HER DRUGS AT THE HOSPITAL WHICH ONLY CUT THE PAIN AWAY FOR AN HOUR AND IT COMES RIGHT BACK. THEY KEEP TRYING ALL THESE DIFFERENT DRUGS AND NOTHING WORKS. MY GIRLFRIEND IS AT THE POINT WHERE SHE DOES NOT WANT TO SUFFER FROM THIS CRAZY PAIN ANYMORE AND DOES NOT EVEN WANT TO LIVE. WE HAVE TRIED CUTTING OUT CERTAIN FOODS AND NO LUCK. ALL I AM LOOKIN FOR IS A SECOND OPINION OR A SOLUTION. ANYTHING HELPS AT THIS MOMENT. MY EMAIL IS cdrenshawAThotmail.com IF YOU COULD ANSWER OR HELP IN ANY WAY, IT WOULD BE A LIFE SAVER. LITERALLY. THANKS

Doctor
