I am new here, so I am very appreciative of any advice I can get. Sorry if this is a long post. I started having Migraines with diziness about
6 or 7 years ago. I took over the counter med for a little over a year to try and handle them but to no avail. Finally went to a Neurologist and he put me on topamax. the Migraines and diziness stop and I felt so much better. Started finally getting my life back, or so I thought. After several month I started having stomach issue, but never assocated it with Topamax. So like before I just handled with it for several years taking over the counter med to help me. I finally got to the point that I couldn't take it any more. After going to 2 specialist I was told I have IBS and they have found 2 tumors on my liver, (benign) they are watching them to see if they grow and if they do , they will have to remove them. The specialist said that all the weight I lost over 25 pounds and the tumors are most likely caused from the Topamax. So I gradually stop taking it. Hoping that the Migraines and the diziness would not come back. Did good for a month and a half, but now they are back. So I have had to start back on my topamax to stop the Migraines and diziness. I have a appointment with the Neuro, but it isn't until the last of August.
Since I started taking Topamax again(I have taking it for 5 days) I have had horrible stomach problems. I wish I could of seen this several years ago.
My question for anyone reading this is what do you take for Migraines and diziness. I need something that will not affect you liver and that is easy on your stomach. Hoping and Praying that there is something out there I can take.
I have done some research, but thought I would ask here, cause first hand knowledge is the best.
