Anyone deal with these?? I guess I havent been formally diagnosed with this but I am currently pregnant and having these episodes every week!  When I am not pregnant I have them once a year. My last pregnancy wasnt too bad I had maybe 4 the whole pregnancy. I am just in my first trimester and Ive already had 4!  I see the neurologist next week.  What do they do at the neurologist?  I am getting worried I jsut hope they are becoming more frequent because of the hormones with pregnancy and I dont have someone seriously wrong. I just had an eye appointment today and everything looks good and my vision is good.  Im just getting really tired of these. If anyone has any insight it would be very much appreciated.

Sorry you're having to deal with these. I believe more often than not they lessen in frequency as you enter into the second trimester. For some they do stick around, but this is definitely the vast minority of cases.

During pregnancy I've read you can take some types of pain killers e.g. tylenol and specific narcotics (talk to your neuro first about both the scripts and OTCs).

I even read somewhere that you can take natural progesterone. I'm not too sure about the accuracy of this one, but I just thought I would throw it out there if you wanted to research it yourself.

I hope the appointment goes well!
