Doctor, I have been diagnosed with migraine from the age of 13. I get an aura which is followed 15-30 mins later by violent nausea and splitting headache on one side oof the head. Depending on the aura the headache occurs on the opposite side of the head e.g. left side aura = right side headache and vice versa. I have taken tons of medicines all of them seem to work initially but stop working within 6-8 months. I have taken epival, topamax, panadols, disprins and kany other countless medicines but none seem to stick. Initially they are effective but then slowly stop working. Now on a regular basis I get migraines roughly 10-15 days in a month and sometimes twice one after the other. Most of my migraines occur during sleep when I wake up because of the migraine.
