silent migraines
My neurologist tells me I have migraines. I generally do not have headaches, if I do they are mild. Nothing more than annoying, really. The thing I went to him for is numbness and tingling in my extremities, and in my face. It scares me, to the point of anxiety. It starts in my hands/feet, sometimes makes it all the way to my elbows/calves. He prescribed topiramate, commonly called Topamax, in increasing doses. The symptoms gradually faded, but today all of a sudden are worse. I've been taking the medicine, I'm still a week or so from my follow up, and it's pretty impossible to get in otherwise. Anyone else have "silent migraines"? ## Hello, Spiderdaisy! How are you doing? Yes, those are the symptoms of silent migraines and the medication may not prevent them all, pl... ...

migraines and topamax
I just recently started taking this for treating 6 to 8 migraines a month. I was using the max amount of meds every month for migraines and in constant pain and usually going in around every 3 to 4 months for a shot. If this sounds familiar you may want to try this drug. If was prescribed 25 mg. for a week which I have just made it though and now am on my second week of 50 mg. My biggest side effect is being tired. I am taking both pills at night instead of one in the morning and one at night. I am hoping to only have to take 50 mg, but we will see. So far so good, but I will up date on progress. ## I am addicted to Restyl since many years. I take 2 pills of 0.5mg every night. I also take Topamac 50 for migraine since last 4 months. Now since the last 7 days I decided to gradually reduc... ...

topomax for migraines
I started 50 mg of Topamax a week ago for migraines. How soon should I start seeing results if it is going to help? So far, the only side effect I have had is some numbness in my feet/hands and carbonated beverages tasting a little different. I was also curious if anyone has had success with topamax helping generalized pain like back or joint pain? ## I was on it fot 4 months for migraine prevention. I had tingling feet off anf on with it. My concern now is that I have double vision from it. I was tsking 25mg/day. ## @Melli, According to a drug monograph for Topamax (topiramate), it may take up to several weeks to start seeing significant changes in your symptoms.. so you may just have to give it a little more time before you can really decide if this medication is even right for you. F... ...

Viibryd and Migraines
Just started Viibryd day 6 at 10mg, went off cold turkey 40 mgs of Prozac, and 50 mgs of Amitriptilene (spelled wrong)..I have been in hell..I'm lightheaded and feeling very aggitated, I kind of feel like I'm crawling out of my skin..But this is the worst part and my main question..I average 4 to 5 migraines a week and can usually get rid of them within 3 to 5 hours..I now have a migraine morning noon and night, has any one else while taking Viibryd, has your migraines increased...Thanks!! ## At this point, it's actually difficult to say whether the migraines may be from the Viibryd, or from stopping the other medications abruptly. Learn more Viibryd details here. The only way to really tell would be to give it a few weeks, so the withdrawals from the other medications stop ... ...

CAN'T TELL YET HOW WELL IT'S WORKING FOR THE MIGRAINES, BUT SIDE EFFECTS ARE BLURRED VISION & EXACERBATION OF PARKINSON-LIKE SYMPTOMS, ESP. LOSS OF BALANCE. ## I don't know how old you are, but my doctor wants me to start Cymbalta for Fibromyalgia pain. BUT since I possibly could have Glaucoma, I can't start taking it as it will cause me to go blind if I have one of the two kinds of Glaucoma, which is wet or dry type. I will have a better diagnosis in October...but just make sure you have your eyes checked before taking Cymbalta!!! ...

I have been trying for something to fix my migraines for years. After trying preventatives my neurologist went to narcotics. I went through oxy percs injectable Demerol (100mg) and NOTHING worked as well as the Dilaudid has, my dr got banned from writing anything controlled for 3 years. I live in Tyler Tx. Someone PLEASE HELP ME. I have at least 15 migraines a month. I've been in and out of the E.R. so much its ridiculous since he got shut down. ## Hello, Jamie! Sorry that you're so miserable.

Migraines associated to Benlysta use?
I am going for my fourth Benlysta treatment tomorrow and although I've noticed huge differences in my mobility and joint junctions, I've been getting really bad migraines everyday around 3-4 in the afternoon. It's the oddest thing, because before starting treatment I would have migraines 1-2 times a year. It's really affecting my family because I am now in bed every night with migraine pain or throwing up. One thing gets better but I still feel debilitated by the treatment. And advice?? ## I should clarify that I take Benlysta injections to help with my Lupus symptoms. I am the first person at my clinic to try this medication and could really use to connect with someone who is trying it as well. Thank u for your time if u have anything to offer, it's appreciated. ## ... ...

Fibromyalgia/migraines- what's helped me
I have Fibromyalgia and Chronic migraines, as well as sleep problems, night terrors, and REALLY bad eye sight Lol. Not sure what that last problem has to do with anything but I thought i'd throw that in there. Here are a few things that I have been doing to help with my Fibro. 1) Probably the most helpful has been the Vicodin. But DON'T overdo it. I take a half of one 325mg pill all day, and only on the days I really need it. This medication can be very addicting, especially to those of us dealing with things like Fibro, because a lot of times were desparate for relief. They also have the potential to cause strokes, heart attacks and things such as that, and that risk decreases if you take less of it, less often. 2) Aromatherapy. Scents like Lavendar and Chamomille to relax. Cin... ...

Need to find a doctor in Upstate NY that specializes in Migraines
I have had migraines since I was 13. Recently, last 4 months, found that Oxycodone takes the pain, auora, and naseau away in about an hour, and keeps it away for up to 8 hours. This is a miracle. No other migraine drug ever worked like this. Now, with the new laws, my primary won't prescribe this. I need to locate a migraine doctor that will treat me. I only get one or two headaches a month, and take 1-2 pills for them, so I am only needing 4 to 6 pills a month, but still impossible to get them. They really are a life changer for migraine sufferers. I wish someone had tried these on me 30 years ago. My life would have been a lot easier. ## Due to the new regulations, you'll need to see a specialist, so that could be either someone specializing in pain management, or a neurologis... ...

Suffer from migraines 2-3 a month, any doctors in Albany, NY that will write small RX ?
I recently had open heart surgery and was prescribed Oxycodone HCl for the first time in my life. The pain of the surgery was the worst I have ever had. The Oxy helped a lot. I had a migraine a few weeks after getting out of the hospital and I knew I could not take the Furinol (sp) because it has caffinine and I can no longer have caffinine, it cause AFIB, so I tried one of the 10 mg Oxycodone tablets. I laid down, as I always do, put on my CPAP and I was already into the aura phase of the migraine. I stayed motionless for about an hour, and the aura faded, as it usually does, and I waited for the pain and naseau to start. To my shock, neither of these happened. Not only that, I could see, which usually I can not after the aura fades. I stayed in bed for another 45 minutes, waiting for ... ...

why does generic fioricet work so much better than bupap for my chronic migraines?
the only things different is:that plain bupap has no caffeine and twice the tylenol per pill than generic fioricet:Butalbital ## Hi, Mary! Sorry about the problem you're having with migraines. It could be that it's the caffeine that's helping your migraines. It does work for alleviating headaches for many people and people that frequently indulge in caffeine often find themselves getting headaches if they suddenly stop, or lower their intake. Learn more Caffeine details here. I frequently found that when I had a headache that nothing else would touch, the Excedrin products with caffeine often alleviated it. Do you drink coffee or tea regularly? ...

Can I please get some information for Dr's in the Seattle area that prescribe pain medication I get severe weather related migraines Sciatica
Hi. I get severe migraines during the rainy season ( I know, Seattle? Basically ALL the time...) I also have sciatica and it has become much more painful since having my twins. I am desperate for some relief. Thanks! ## Hello, Twinmomma! How are you doing? Sorry about the pain you're in and congratulations on the twins! As to a doctor for pain medications, due to the new regulations that were put in place this year, if you require them on a long-term, ongoing basis, then you'll need to see a pain management specialist. General practitioners and surgeons have been severely restricted on what they can prescribed, how much they can prescribe, why they can prescribe it and how long they can prescribe it. Do you currently have a PCP that could refer you somewhere? That would be the e... ...
