hiya i ve been suffering bad with migraines for over 3 years in the last 2 years they have been severe, had me in tears and prevent me from doing everyday things. I had a scan last year and was told that it was clear then the neurologist that i seen said it was just chronic migraines but am getting really annoyed now as its getting me down, the pain can sometimes be all over or just sharp pain behind the ear, I just get told to lie down in a dark room and take painkillers which are of no use at all is there anything that you can suggest ?

It seems from the history that you are diagnosed with chronic migraine and you are having complaints of severe headache, pain behind the ears...
The treatment for migraine is by use of anti-inflammatory drugs and analgesics. Non responding cases may require use of ergotamine.
Since you are having chronic migraine you may require use of flunarizine or beta blockers to prevent recurrent attacks.
Hence I suggest you to consult your doctor for prescription of drugs to prevent migraine.

Thank you
