Ongoing Chronic Headache

by Rog
(ATL)

Hi,
I have a 16-year old vibrant daughter, that in August 2013, came down with a cold virus and has had a severe HA ever since. They called it a post-viral HA.Her pain is about 9-10 daily and has affected her school/social life.Have seen three neurologists in ATL. They tried the following drugs:
Ibuprofen
Petadolex
Aleve
Diamoxin
Immitrex
Cynbalta
Toredal
Compazine/Benadryl
Topimax
Migranol
Dermatran Creme
Amitriptylene

We also had a spinal tap, Angiography done and were negative. Completed Botox injections and an Ocipital nerve bloce to no avail. Also tried accupuncture/cupping for relief.
We have made four trips to the ER and had the Raskins Protocol done which helped, and one done with DHE.
Went to Cincinnati HA Ctr twice and first diagnosed it as NDPH, three months later diagnosed it as a Chronic migraine. She has sharp temple pains and has just recently moved to the back of the head also.

Raskin headache protocol is an excellent idea and if she responded to that why isn't she on Migranol? This is the nasal spray that is the same drug used in the protocol..I did not see that on the list. Follow up with the headache center and ask them about this and repeating the Raskin protocol for her. Good luck!
