I don't speak the language either :) I don't know how many doctors I've seen, and all they can do is shrug their shoulders about what's going on with my migraines. I keep chugging along though. If it weren't for the Imitrex, I am certain I would not have been able to live with the migraines all these years.

I forgot to mention that I've had daily chronic tension headaches that started along with the migraines. I was on Darvocet for many years for those, and every so often my doctor would tell me about rebound headaches and analgesics. About 2 years ago, I tapered myself off of the Darvocet, and it really did make a difference in the tension headaches. But now I've been having to take Imitrex every day for several months.

Have you ever tried any of the triptan medications? I have read that migraine in children can manifest differently than in adults. I'm not familiar with pediatric neurology, but I wonder if a consultation with an adult neurologist (one that specializes in migraine) would be helpful. There are a few others in my family that have migraines, but nothing like what mine are (I'm so special ;)
