I left school early (17) due to chronic migraines affecting my A level grades and now I am doing nothing with my life, stuck in bed all day every day and always want my life to end. I can't manage it, it was causing failure when I was otherwise a top student. The osmani centre that helps children got involved because I threw a glass out the window due to anger as my neighbour said I was "acting". Camhs also intervened and tried to force me to go back so I told them I am taking a year out just to get them to shut up. Careers advisors called in January when I was 17 and said that on their records it doesn't say I am in education or training and I said that's because of a long term illness I can't work or study so they said to visit them when I get better as they advise people from 17-20 years old and they will help me go back to education. Why are people determined for me to go back? Is it the fact that I left early? Who said I want to go back? I am 18 now so can't I do what I want?

So when did you start getting them?
What help are you getting?
What medication have you tried?
Have you seen a specialist?
Have you identified your trigger factors?
How did you do at GCSE?
What sort of migraines do you get? Describe symptoms and how long. Severity and frequency.

It is possible to lesson or control the impact. I think the people are involved because they have been notified you left school early.
Education is a good thing because it gives you career options.
Nearly all people manage to find some sort of strategy eventually and to work around their migraines when they settle.
Have a look at someone like the Migraine Trust if you want to learn more about them.

Got them in march 2018 and has been there every day
Was with camhs just talking about it and took medication
Tried sumatriptan, naproxen, ibuprofen, paracetamol, gabapentin, proponolol, amitriptyline
Havent seen a migraine specialist
Stress and crying for 4 hours caused it
Didnt do as well as i could have in 2 subjects at gcse but good enough for A level, in fact amazing until the migraines which was causing issues with subject knowledge
Migraines there all the time as soon as i wake up, only relief i get is from sleep. Which is why i sleep all day nowadays and never wake up.
Gets worse at night or the longer i stay awake.
