My 15 yo daughter has been out of school since the middle of January 2013. She has severe chronic headaches (8-10 on pain chart) that start between 10pm-4am everyday and last all day. They go to about a 3-5 on the pain chart from about 11am until about 10pm everyday. We have seen chiropractors, ER, Endocrinologists (her thyroid was very low and we have gotten it regulated with meds), Naturopath (her progesterone and estrogen were very low - we just started on meds), Family practice dr - they thought maybe a sinus infection - tried to do an MRI but couldn't because of braces. Other then her TSH, progesterone and estrogen levels, all other tests have come back normal. I have a call into her orthodontist - hoping to hear back today. She will also see a migraine specialist on the 8th of April. We have tried migraine meds both synthetic and naturopathic and NOTHING helps. I am looking for any and all help. I just wish I could take her pain away and she could live a normal life and not be a prisoner of her bed. (oh~ we also purchased a new pillow and a new mattress, which won't be here for a couple of weeks.View Thread
