About 5 months ago out of the blue, for the first time in my life, I got a migraine. At first it started a little, and then it got horrible. I was seeing auras and talking funny. I had so much anxiety about what was wrong. I had to miss a week of school. I saw my family doctor who recommended me to see a neurologist. The neurologist ordered me an MRI [even though he anticipated everything was fine]. while waiting for the results my migraine that i had for 2 weeks began to get better. When I got my Mri results back, my neurologist said my brain looked perfectly normal, and that i just was suffering from a migraine.

So I went for about 2 months without a migraine, and then I suddenly got one again. It lasted about 2 weeks. I went back to see the neurologist and he said he would put me on medication. He prescribed me Amitript [because on a low level dose it helps migraines but is used for anxiety/depression] It helps somewhat.

However, once in awhile [very rarely] I get real fast, pulse in the back of my head.. Sometimes my eyes if I'm in a dark room, i look at my computer screen and advert my eyes i see the same image and it then fades.. so light sensitivity.
No other symptoms.

I can't put my mind at ease. I think the doctors are wrong or the MRI missed something! It interferes with my life. I feel depressed all the time. My parents think I'm crazy.
Is it normal to be afraid? Can someone please help me.. do mri's usually show everything?
