    Hi @Inpain - I just wanted to welcome you into this great community. If you're having difficulty with triptans or they're not effective, perhaps discuss this with your GP, as they should be able to help you.
    Unfortunately none of us are medically qualified, so are unable to give an opinion. I hope you can get to see your GP soon, & do let us know how you get on.

    Hi @inpain and welcome to the community. Sorry to hear you are in pain and hope you get it sorted. As others have said we are not able to give medical advise so urge you to contact your GP.

    Hi @inpain

    Welcome to our online community/family.

    I am also a Community Champion here at Scope.

    Have you been seen by a local “Pain Clinic”

    I like many of us here at the Community have got “Chronic Pain 24/7”

    We are unable to offer you any “medical advice” on here!!!!!

    Please please contact your GP if you feel that your condition is worsening.

    Many thanks.
