Hello, So I went to see my neurologist again today, and we went over my symptoms and diary since my migs started on may 5th. We are now hoping that I have Hemicrania Continua, based on my symptoms and lack of success with other meds. The only way to test for this is to try the meds for a week. Does any one have any experience with this? I know it is kinda rare? Any help would be gladly taken, thanks.
It is Indometacin, which is a high dose nsaid. I have looked up the drug and the condition but I was hoping for personal experience with some one who has this or knows some one who has this. My symptoms all match up, but they don't tell you what to expect for the rest of your life.
Hello, So we are still working on breaking this mig I have had since may 5th. I see my neurologist on Friday, and hopefully we will figure out something. I was wondering, and maybe this is a question for the MD, but my mother has told me she used heroine while she was pregnant with me, I am wondering if anyone has heard this having an effect on migraines or brain chemistry later in life. My IQ is high Average and the only other issue I have had is dyslexia which I have overcome. Thanks for any and all help, Melissa HallbladeView Thread
Thank you, that is what most of my own research had shown. But only one half aunt on my mothers side has migraines, don't know paternal side at all, so I was wondering if this was a possibility. Thanks again for your quick reply, MelissaView Thread
I don't know about you all, but when I have a mig it is almost impossible for me to read because the aura and eye strain get so bad that it makes me unable to read for any length of time. But my Husband bought me a kindle for mt birthday and I have been able to read even with the never ending mig I have had as of late.View Thread
I am sorry that you have been in so much pain. How long have you been on the amitrypline? it can take 4-6 weeks to kick in. Have you tried a high dose nsad, like tordal, or injections? I have found a food journal to be really helpful in figuring out what is causing migrines. Good luck,View Thread
Wow, I am so sorry for your pain. Did the ER give you instructions as far as fallow up? For my migraines nsada like Aleve or Ibuprofen work to take the edge off, I you don't have a nuero I would suggest that you get one. Good LuckView Thread
I am really frustrated and very tired.I have had migraines off and on since I was 18, but the medications worked and they were infrequent. Two years ago they started getting worse, a year and a half ago the imtrix quit working. So I started taking zomig and amitryptiline, and seeing a nuero. about a month and a half ago I had a really bad sinus infection, I thought it was gone and 24 days ago I had a really bad migraine, and have had one everyday since. I have developed a ulcer in my sinuses, but I think that is going away. Now these migraines have come everyday, with and without aura, my zomig and midrin work for a few hours but then wear off. I have done predzone with no luck, had two infusions, that wore off, and found out I have an allergy to dhe45. MRI was normal, and I was informed by my supervisor today that my fmla was worded wrong, so I may lose my job, because I haven't been able to work for the last 8 days. any help would be appreciated. Thanks MelissaView Thread
