Sorry to hear you have been suffering for so long? What meds have you tried? Have you been able to find a good Headache Specialist? I am currently on Pamelor and also in the process of weaning off lamictal and verapamil since after 6 months of being on them they just weren't working for me. I am 36 years old and just started having migraines 2 years ago (which eventually turned to chronic migraines within 6 months after that). I also have trigeminal neuralgia II. My neuro found a blood vessel wrapped around a nerve in my left eye socket which gives me trouble. I can't seem to figure out where I got these migraines from since nobody in my family has them. I guess I'm the lucky one Anyway, I am also a relatively new member to this site. There is another group forum that you can join to - the NDPH forum (New Daily Persistent Headache).
