I experience an ungodly amount of headaches. I am 39 y/o and believe I am in the perimenopause stage of life. The problem is my doctors are having a hard time accepting that answer. I have researched the symptoms on the web and the doctors still don't accept that as an answer. Take this med, take that med, see this doctor, see that doctor. Round and round I go. I am so frustrated :mad: . I have taken Imitrex, Relpax, Amerge, Inderal, Topomax and bottles of Ibuprofen. Blood tests, eye exams, dental visits and MRI's :confused: . I've even asked to take birth control. It's making me crazy! Nothing touches these headaches except for a medication called Axert. The problem is my doctors seem to think that I take too many of them and I feel like they think that I am making up these symptoms. I need an alternative way of alleviating these symptoms without involving the doctors. Does anyone have any suggestions?
