My daughter, Ashley, is 18 and had 2 seizures on April 26, 2008. All of her testing came back negative as well as her labs. She has had a debilitating migraine with dizziness and nausea since. We are now on day 5 of this excruciating migraine. The neurologist, who I know from the hospital where I work, has given her vicodin and maxalt. It isn't breaking it. She started her on a medrol dose pack today. Ashley, at age 13, had kidney stones. Nothing (vicodin, PCA dilaudid, demporat and morphine, T3s, percocet, etc. etc. never broke her pain. My daughter lays in a fetal position holding her head and cries. I am so frustrated, lost, and feeling useless to help my child. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I'm interested to know how others...
