Fibro headaches treatments, any tips?

Postby Jessiechest » Wed Jul 05, 2017 8:38 pm

Hey everyone. I'm 23 years old and was diagnosed with fibro 7 years ago. Recently my symptoms have been getting worse, especially the headaches! When I was first diagnosed I tried taking amytriptaline, naproxen and then gabapentin with little success. After that I decided to try and self medicate instead but it's now proving impossible to make it through a day without awful headaches. Has anyone tried anything else with any success?!

I usually try those migraine strips that you can get at the chemist. Also putting a little cayenne pepper on the inside of the nostrils with some warm water helps a bit. If that fails then I take some paracetamol. If that fails then I add some ibuprofen, and if that fails I add tramadol. Almonds are also supposed to be good for pain.
