Hello, I usually post on the FMS page but visit Migraine frequently to lurk. In 1999 I fell and hit my head, knocking myself out for a time. I was concussed and also slightly fractured, and was diagnosed with post-concussive syndrome. I want to say that incident sparked my migraines, but have had them since I was very young. But they definitely got worse after the fall. One of them was especially scary as it happened while I was driving - I got vertigo and the worst pain in my head ever. I thought I was having a stroke, it hurt so bad, and made me vomit alongside the road. I had them every couple of days for about two years, and they did lessen to a degree. I still have them every couple of weeks, but they have gone back to their pre-fall levels. My neurologist put me on an antidepressant, which helped the depression side, Topamax ("dopamax" didn't make me dopey at all) and also Maxalt, which doesn't work for some people but my doc ramped up my dosage, and that helps. When things got really bad I had to go into his office and he would shoot my (I think) ocular motor nerve - the one with two branches at the back of the skull, where I fell - with a lidocaine solution, which would numb the nerves and bring relief for a time. During this time period of worse migraines I had to be careful of my activities, food triggers, stress, worry, anything that would make my headaches worse. And they did lessen, but those couple of years were hard. I am still extremely noise- and light-sensitive. Everyone's head is different, though, and that is good you are seeing a specialist. Hang in there and keep asking questions.
