    I'm 26 and I have been having migraines since I was 14yrs of age. At that time I had insurance and the doc ruled out any serious problems. Up until a year ago I was only having one or two a year, and would only go to the hospital one time. Last year I had at least 12 total, seven of them I went to the hospital. Now this year I have developed a new type of migraine with different symptoms. My two main types are:1. around the eyes (cluster) they get so bad, I swear my eyes feel like they are popping out of my head. 2. Is in my neck going up behind my ears-the main thing with this one is I wake up with migraine. When I lay down they get worse. I'm having more and more trouble taking over the counter products they don't seem to help. I have tried heat, cold, appling preasure,no lights, no sound, muscle relaxers, over the counter meds. I tried prescription when I was first diagnosed but it didn't help. Nothing new to my knowledge is around. I don't have insurance so the E.R slaps a band-aide on and sends me home. I'm open to any addvice.

    Have you tried aromatherapy or chiropractics?? is it related to your menstrual cycles or perhaps allergies to chocolate sulfates in meats?

    yes i have. about the food i'm on a diabetic diet-due to diadetes during pregnances. since i dont have insurence i do my best to keep from having any problems with that. i notice different triggers for each type i have. however once i get one of them in 24 hrs i believe it is setting the other off another. i will go about three days back and forth with these. one trigger is if my neck wont pop, another is laying down, stress. i believe my eyes have a lot to do with it too but the eye doctor i went to for a free check up thought i was crazy when i told him that my eyeballs hurt, not the bone around, but the acctual eye. i can go in to detail with that, if you think of some things that might give me relief with my eyes.
    sorry for a late reply thank though.
