I am 43 years old and am having daily migraines, I am currently taking 75 mgs of topamax with little relief. I had brain surgery four years ago, due to scar tissue on my brain the surgery was a sucess and no complications, but now the migraines and increased. I think it may be premenopause, or maybe just the change in seasons, anyway I go to see my neurologist Sept 6th.
I don't know if there is anything else they can give me, or if I just have to deal with it. the migraines start out in my right temple then eventually end up in my neck and shoulders. they are draining to say the least, the other day I was taking a shower, and thought I was going to pass out and had to cut the shower off and sit down really quickly. It may be that I just got overheated, and I had a migraine also, hoping it's nothing else. it's been good for me to read your post here, I haven't had anyone else to talk to that could relate.
