I would strongly urge you to bring this problem to the attention of your counselors, the physician who prescribes your migraine medication, and to the physician who you will be seeing soon about your depression. All of your treating medical and mental health professionals need to know about the voices that are accompanying your migraine headaches. There could be a problem with the migraine medication. The voices might also be related to the migraines. It is difficult to determine what may be causing the voices and that is why it’s so important that you report this information to the medical and psychiatric professionals. They will be able to evaluate you and treat your symptoms.
If you’re not certain about how to approach your counselors and other treating professionals, try saying something like this: “I have something that I want to tell you but I’m frightened about your reaction. I’ve noticed that when I have migraines I hear voices. I try very hard but I cannot get them to stop. It is very aggravating, emotionally draining and I’m not sure how to handle it. I need some help. I want this problem to go away because it is negatively affecting my life. Can you please help me deal with this problem?”
If speaking to them makes you feel uncomfortable than perhaps you can give them the letter you have written to us at Psych Central. It explains the problem you’re having.
There is a high probability that your counselors will be able to help you but they can’t assist you if they are unaware of your problem. Please report this information to them immediately. Thank you for writing. I wish you well. Please take care.
