I'm 55 years old and recently been diagnosed with migraines. My episodes start out with a kinda dizziness in the back of my head, along with the dizziness is almost a state of confusion. It may or may not move to a mild headache in the top of my head.

Does the dizziness sound familiar to anyone?

Need some help!

Hi Jesse,

Yes, mine use to start like that. I drink 6-8 glasses of water a day now. Most of my dizziness is gone except when I get cluster headaches.

Thank you, Trina

Wonder how the water helps? My doc has started me on topiramate, but I haven't started taking it yet. I'm concerned about the side affects. Are you familiar with this med?

Thanks

Hi Jesse,

Water hydrates the body and helps the blood flood easier through the vessels. Most migraines are thought to be caused by pressure in the blood vessels of the head.

Yes, I take topiramate 100mg am and 125 mg pm as daily maint for pain. Works fairly well for me. I can not remember any bad side effects, perhaps, a little dizzy or light headed and tired for a while. What ever it was passed quickly.

Please start taking your medication, no reason to suffer.

Peace and courage
