I have had migraines for over 35 years or more...Wow!!...Just realizing that is crazy!
I have been getting Botox injections every 3 months, taking Aimovig injections, as well as oral medications.
I still have Chronic Migraine; however the intensity of the pain is less. I also have less nausea. I continue to have moments of lightheadedness / dizziness when I move my head too quickly. Like being in a fishbowl ???? Triggered by certain smells and weather. My eyes are very sensitive, and that also triggers.
Quarterly Botox injections have cut my migraines by 85%! I realize everyone responds differently, but shooting neurotoxin in my brain has given me my life back! Wishing youvall relief and peace - and olease stay well.
Some relief after years of pain. Now take Amovig monthly and Botox every 3 months for rescue Rizatriptan has helped but still bad. Have started using Cefaly daily. It haven’t helped when I have a bad migraine but seems to have reduced the number of them. The one thing that stands out was as a grade school child in the 50s little boys didn’t get migraines so I would have to suffer through them till I through-up. Then they would send me home because I was sick.
Thanks for your web site it’s helped over the years
I’ve suffered since my early twenties and I’m now in my early sixties and looking back I don’t know how I’ve survived
It helps to know that there are others out there like me but I don’t know how much longer I can last waiting for relief
Having experienced episodic migraine since I was 23 years old, (I'm now 74) I've recently been diagnosed with chronic migraine. I've been given excellent help from a neurologist and now have discovered this website that so far has helped me understand all these weird sensations I've been experiencing are in fact all related to migraine.
Thank you for all this wonderful information.
I look forward to receiving as much information as I can as I now understand why I sometimes cannot articulate what I feel, why noise is overwhelming, why certain smells are nauseating and why I experience so many other sensations my brain has been sending me.
My sincere thanks to the team producing this great website.
