I need some suggestions. I had a stroke in February 2013, recently found out I have a 3 mm aneurysm, cerebral angio-graphm was last week and they will wait 6 months before they do something. I have had little relief from pain. I am on Topamax 50 mg 2 times daily, which makes me feel aweful and I have wicked insomnia. I pray for rainy or cloudy days as I cannot tolerate any form of light, even wear glasses in the house. Prior to February, life was wonderful and I am normally, typically, a happy person. God, this is aweful. My primary physican suggested Cymbalta as I have Fibromyalgia and Osteoarthritis (both since 2001), plus I believe this will help my mood.
Does anyone know if this will help me with my ocular-migraines? I have an appointment with third Neurologist - he is a Neuro-Opthomologist as past two Neuros are not addressing eye issues which include loss of vision and eye, brain pain, which is really horrible. Thanks for any suggestions.
