I'm new here so please bear with me. Almost all of my migraines are present when I wake up in the morning. I am currently taking 1000 mg of depakote/day for prevention purposes but I hate it due to the side effects (drowsiness, no energy, weight gain). I rarely get a migraine during the middle of the day so I'm wondering if something is going on while I sleep. I've tried different pillows, different sleeping positions etc. Taking a med. for pain at the onset does nothing b/c when I wake up, I have a full blown attack going on with all the symptoms (light/noise sensitivity, vomitting, severe pain, diarrhea, etc etc)
Does anyone else experience this? Also, I was wondering if anyone has tried Botox injections?
