I've been suffering with head aches for years now about 5/6 years? Sometime there so bad I HAVE to lay down, they've stared to happen more often and more painful, nothing touches them, I've read that some people use amitriptyline, but I'm on that already and must admit in desperation , tried it, didn't work, tries ice packs made it worse, co-codamol don't work, off the shelf anti inflammatories don't work, tea seems to be the only thin to sooth it. I've had optical migraines with auras, I've had about 4/5 within 2 days, not had any since then (May), never been to the doctors about head aches, not quite sure where to start with it, my doctors appointments nearly always end with disappointment lol I was looking for advise on the first "I've got headache" appointment, can I prepare anything before I go? Any websites to help me explain in doctor terms? Because all I can think off to say is my eyes ache, sun light and sounds hurt, I want to pull my head off of my spine. It could be my neck, shoulders, back and I have problems with all of them and many more, just need help to know what direction to go in so I don't cry after another appointment where nothing has been achieved.
