Wow - doctors told you that you were causing your own headaches and you're just someone that blacks out? I understand why you hate doctors! I'm sorry you've had to go through this.

I've had CAT scans and MRIs too. Brain tumors are extremly rare, but doctors tend to be cautious and order the tests to rule this kind of thing out. Just because nothing shows up on these scans does not mean there isn't something going wrong. I would say the only way I was causing my migraines is if I sat around drinking bottles of red wine (a trigger for me)all day.

I would be concerned about taking ibuprofen or other NSAIDs every day - not just rebound pain, but GI bleeding. (sorry, I don't mean to scare you)

What happens when you have a blackout? Do you have any warning signs or symptoms beforehand? I can't believe a doctor would just let that go! Has anything turned up on the testing so far?

I've found forums like this very helpful in figuring out what I should ask a doctor, and just gaining some general knowledge.

Did I ask whether you had tried Imitrex or other triptans?
