Hey all I my name is Jess. This is my first time ever posting anything anywhere so I am alittle nervous plus I have very bad spelling. Anyways, I was diagnosed with migraines at the ripe age of 3 years old and I am now 26 and still living with them. The docs said I would "grow out of them" when I hit puberty but I guess I never hit it Just kidding!
I have been through the ringer with all of the different types of meds from pills (imiterex, maxalt, zomig, relpax,exct.. to nasal spray to injections. Right now I am taking this horrrible DHE injection which makes me extremly nausious after I inject. Nothing seems to work anymore. All the sprays I have to take twice to get rid of the headache I cant take imitrex it locks my jaw. I need something I can take and keep on functioning so I don't miss so much work!!
I was getting 5 severe headache a week and then mild one on the off days. I started on Topamax 200mg daily about 6 months ago and it has brought my headache down to 2 severe headaches/week I also take celebrex, and muslce relaxers but now my headeaches are creeping back up more frequently.
After reading a couple of the other post I picked up that some of you use feverfew if anyone has more info I would love to hear about it. My sister-in-law grows and makes a tincter but she can't tell much about side effect's with other meds and wether it really works or not. And if there are any other vitamins that I should be taking that my daily vit is missing let me know!
Well I have gone on long enough talk you soon
