Hi. everyone! I’m a moderator in the fibro but I have a friend who has gotten complex migraines for years...several a week! One of the last ones she had, half her tongue went numb, had tingling on the same side, etc. She saw several neurologists at a medical school in the area and they suggested her migraines were being caused by allergies!
They sent her to an allergist and he tested her for many things. Naturally pollen, grasses, etc. showed up as allergies but so did alot of various foods! They printed out the list and she has been careful what she eats and is feeling better.
about a month ago she went back for a follow up appointment and the neurologist put her on Claritin and also Zantac. She asked why the Zantac because she didn’t have acid reflux. He said they are finding that Zantac brings down the histamines in the body and it helps prevent these migraines! She started taking them and, as of today, she has only had three very mild headaches...not migraines! She has been suffering with migraines for 60 years!
So I thought I’d pass this on to all of you. It might be a good thing to talk to your doctor about. I guess it’s pretty new so if your doctor knows nothing about it don’t be surprised. But if they say you can take these and they shouldn’t hurt you, then you might see how it works for you. As I tell the fibro members, what works for one does t necessarily work for another. I do hope this wil help you.
