Hi , Iam pretty new on the mirgraine forum I'm usually on the anxiety forum , but yes I have had migraine, headache for 6 months since , July to be exact some days it's very light but it's still there , Iam a severe anxiety suffer , but my head feels like it's going to explode , ears clogged , and heavy headness , pressure , burning , shooting pains , and just pain in all different parts of my head , tight band , eyes pain . The funny spots I see , and feels like someone is squezzing my head , or stretching it like a rubber band , all my docs think its from my anxiety , I had a MRI , 3 ct scan , EEG and bloodwork , but yet I feel like this , I was given fioricet and imatrix , neither worked , its feels like a valley in my head , my doc say all my test was clean and since my severe anxiety in August that started in August it left my chest area and went to my head ... Its scary , I go see my Neuro on the 30 th and they gone come up with a plan for me , she says I don't need another MRI , but if it will give me rest she will do another .... Oh and I saw a ENT as well , I also get brain zaps but that was happening before the headaches started, I'm 35 and never in my life had headaches or migraines before by anxiety started , my doc wants me to take Zoloft

I took an antidepressant for my migraines for about a year and I was very successful in treating them. I didn't have a single migraine the entire time I was on pristiq. I haven't heard of people using zoloft for migraines though. Did the doctor say it may provide relief or is it purely for the anxiety? Otherwise, maybe you could do pristiq and get both benefits. I was using ponstel for aborting migraines for a while and it helps me way more than foircet and tripthans. I also had some luck with zomig but it hasn't helped lately. I am thinking about going back on the antidepressant.
