My Struggle Begins

I had the occasional headache over the years. It wasn’t until I was in my 20’s, after sinus surgery, that I developed a headache that wouldn’t subside. I wound up at Thomas Jefferson University Headache Center in Philadelphia. They diagnosed a Migraine. I stayed for several days for treatment and was released. The next incident wasn’t until my 30’s.I had what I described as the “worst headache ever!” I went to the emergency room and was told it too was a migraine. I was treated and released. I didn’t have anymore issues until 2005. I was in a stressful job and having chronic sinus infections so Migraine didn’t even enter my mind. As my headaches became more frequent and painful, I saw my ENT, who diagnosed sinus headache. Treatment didn’t help. I saw my GP, who diagnosed stress. Treatment didn’t help. Frustrated, and in pain, I decided to do my own research. I Googled and WEBMD’d and went back to my GP. Thus began my epic struggle for answers and treatment.
