silent migraines
1 Reply RSS
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... ...

I have suffered for a long, long time the Evil, Painful, MIGRAINES. Back in the day, I was taken to the hospital to get a Demerol Shot. They don't use Demerol any more. as years went on I was taken to the hospital with migraine and was given some kind of medicine for my nausa, and my Migraine. I never stayed awake long enough to find out. Found out it was morphine. We move through the years and I've been Mexico where I had a Huge Migrain. My daring Husband ventured forth to find a Medication, in a strange country, only English language. He's my hero :) he came back with something called Neo-Melubrina (Metamizol sodico) suppositories. OMG! amazing med. No need to swallow anything if vomiting. I want to find some more of this product, but have been unsuccessful in our shopping... ...

Statins and Migraines
1 Reply RSS
I was on a Statin for the past 5 years and have suffered with migraines for the past 15 years. For many reasons I decided to take myself off the Statin 2 years ago. I attributed my decrease in migraines by changing jobs and reducing stress. My doctor recently convinced me to start back on a Statin. I've been on it for the past month and have noticed for the past week I've had constant migraine pain. So I've decided to live with the POSSIBLE risk of heart disease rather than the debilitating pain from daily migraines. ## Hello, Even! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem you had. First, I'd like to clear up a misconception, if you have high cholesterol, it isn't just heart disease that you're at risk of, you're actually at risk of a full heart attack, b... ...

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.

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!!! ...

Hi, Just thought I'd let everyone know the best thing to take for migraines.. I'm currently on the bupap 50 mlg and they do work BUT if u want something very effective without all the acetaminophen in it try IMMITREX. It works wonders . When I was on it, I only had to take one and I have headaches everyday and migraines often. Hope this helps . -Bri ## I've taken every medication under the sun for my migraines. Maxaly always used to do the trick until it just stopped working. My MD loaded me with topamax, verapimrl, despite etc. I did the in house treatment of the DHE infusion. Botox. You name it.

Brintellix and Migraines
4 Replies RSS
My wife has been on Brintellix/Trintellix for nearly a year now with great results. No other anti-depressant has been as effective in treating her symptoms. However, she has also suffered from migraines over the years, and she is not allowed to take the triptans that she used to take (Maxalt, etc.). Normally the Excedrin Migraine (acetaminophen, aspirin, caffeine) has been enough, but this most recent one was bad enough to require a trip to urgent care and a shot of a narcotic painkiller. Any suggestions on what migraine meds she can talk to her doctor about? ## Topamax, works awesome for me, it's cool once you get past the brain fog, and the weight loss. ## Hello, Patrick! How is your wife doing? Fioricet might also be another option to try, if her doctor approves. I didn't fin... ...

I am on a short course of medrol for a back issue, but I also suffer from chronic migraines. I know it is often also used to break a cycle of chronic migraines. On day 4 of medrol pack, and I've had severe migraine. Can this sometimes be a side effect. Instead of helping, causing migraine? ## I am a migraine sufferer for 30 years. Working on MOH, and relieving chronic migraines. Also, trying to find a Headache specialist is near impossible short of going to a Headache clinic like Mayo. ## Yes, this medication can cause headaches/migraines as a side effect, according to FDA reports. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, nervousness, and acne. Betsy, have you tried consulting a neurologist? They are usually the ones that treat such issues. ...

Tamoxifen cured my migraines
3 Replies RSS
I just started Tamoxifen 10 days ago after lumpectomy and radiation for ER+. Breast cancer. Clear margins, sentinel node negative. My oncologist recommended radiation and IV chemo for one year. I agreed to radiation, refused chemo. Arimidex recommended, I agreed and started taking as soon as I finished 6 weeks of radiation. I was unable to tolerate the joint pain and bone aches, and the very frequent and severe hot flashes so I stopped Arimidex after 3 months. That was 3 years ago. At my last oncology visit, my doctor recommended I start Tamoxifen just to be safe, as I have no signs or symptoms of recurrence. I reluctantly agreed to give it a try and started it 10 days ago. The amazing thing about starting tamoxifen is that my almost daily migraines have suddenly stopped. I have had sev... ...
