I'm going for my first visit ever on August 16th. I had to leave my normal family Dr., because he just refused to refer me. But thats another story in itself.
I'm 25 years old, and my migraines started about 3 years ago. I got up one morning and nearly passed out from the pain, nausea, sounds, light, all were devastating. It scared me to death, so I immediately called my normal physician. I told him my story, and he just smiled and said that I just described a migraine to him. He explained some things to me and I was given some samples of Relpax. I was told to take them immediately when I had a migraine. Months went by, maybe a year, and everything was o.k. Then the migraines became more frequent so I went back to my physician. I was then prescribed Innopran(beta blocker) 80mg daily. This is where everything went downhill. I have become useless, I have no energy, I sweat taking out the garbage, and I lost my job due to terrible performance.
One the upside, I only have a migraine maybe once a month. The reason for the betablocker was because I couldn't function after taking a few relpax, and look at me now ! Anyways, I changed Docs and went for my first visit last week and he immediately refered me to a neurologist.
Finally, maybe I can get out of this slump. I have Aura terribly, daily, sometimes for hours on end. I see golden showers, and just feel numb, sometimes even like I'm going to pass out(just confusion), but I never do. All of this never with a headache. Is this normal ? Anyways thanks for reading this, and if anyone has any comments or suggestions for me to ask my neurolgist let me know. I have no idea what he's going to suggest or say. Hate to say it, but I'm almost excited to be going to the DR.
