I have had persistent headache at the left temple for two

Customer Question

I have had persistent headache at the left temple for two and a half years. I also suffer from full migraine attacks with aura, nausea etc and loss of feeling down left side every few days. I've removed all possible triggers and been on different medication, as well as have access to sumatriptan which works 20 percent of time. I've seen a chiropractor, etc to try to combat any causes from spine, etc. Nothing is working.

I am sorry you are having bad migraines.

there are other migraine headache medications like Topamax (topiramate) or Fioricet or rizatriptan which could help better than imitrex.

you may benefit from botox injections for migraines as well.

you need to ask to see a neurology expert doctor for migraines in the UK
