Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing Internal Medicine Physician. Excellent service is my goal.
I'm sorry you are struggling
Have you tried imitrex or daily preventive medicines?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I have actually. My mother gets bad migraines as well and she gave one to try. I feel like nothing works for me. The weird thing too is that I did get a CT and nothing showed up! I don't understand.

What medicine do you take daily Kim including over the counter?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
I take birth control, Trazadone for sleep. Advil, Ibuprofen and Excedrin. Oh! and my multivitamins... can't forget those!
Thanks Kim
I think what you are experiencing here is a medication overuse headache
I think you have underlying migraines but it is being made worse by all the medicines.
Here's an article about it
the first step is to wean off these drugs over a few days.
Then a daily preventive med should be instated
I hope this helps.
If you have more questions, just reply. :)
