wow, you poor thing-that really sucks-I'm sorry. My aunt suffers from those and Tegretol works well for her although I don't know the mechanisms behind why it works well for her.
I wish I could help you feel better. How often do you get them??? I'm sure you've been asked this.....but what about good ole Topamax:S?? Would that help something like the kind of migraines you get or no?
