I am 19 years old and I have migraines 24/7. No kind of pain killer even touches the pain. I'm so desperate for relief! It's getting to the point where I fe like I am wasting my life because I don't enjoy anything anymore cause of the pain. I go to a doctor but so for nothing has worked.

    Neurologist is good, acupuncture is also a great help! Don't over take painkiller they lose effectiveness after a while… Iv been in a similar situation.

    Consider finding a good acupuncturist trained in Chinese Herbal Medicine. I was in a similar spiral, though not quite as bad, and it completely stopped my migraines. I do have to go once per month in perpetuity, however.

    Something to try would be to eliminate any possible triggers (bananas, nuts, dried fruits, dehydration, and fluorescent lighting are some of mine). I would suggest the book "Heal Your Headache". Also I agree with trying a different doctor

    I feel for you because I know from personal experience that there are no easy answers. Depending on where you live, you could seek out another doctor. Sometimes doctors run out if ideas and a fresh opinion may be helpful. I am trying out doctors now myself. I just "fired" 2 doctors that treated me in ways that were unacceptable. But in the process I found out about a migraine specialist in my area that I didn't know existed. So I'm going to get another opinion.

    If it is possible find a headache clinic such as Diamond Headache Institute in Chicago. It sounds like you need a specialist for your doctor.
