Chronic Dizziness And Off Balance

Chronic Dizziness And Off Balance

Has anyone here had to deal with chronic off balance feeling or dizziness? For 6 days now, I have had a feeling of being off balance. I’ve had 2 migraines during that time. Even when it doesn’t hurt, I’ve had this feeling. I’m not sure if it’s related.

It’s frustrating and causes me anxiety at times, but I don’t worry about it being serious. 30 years of them here. Thank you, you too!

Hi Everyone, I've Just Been Prescribed Sumatriptan Which Seems To Help A Bit. What Is Your Experience With That Drug?

Hi Everyone, I've Just Been Prescribed Sumatriptan Which Seems To Help A Bit. What Is Your Experience With That Drug?

My migraines are triggered by lifting , or reaching over my head. I’m convinced there is some connection with my cervical spine being slightly out of whack? Tension in my shoulder muscles escalates the whole thing.

A MyMigraineTeam Member said:

So sorry to hear that. Mine can be triggered by leaning down to long. I use zolmatriptan but doesn't seem to help. I want to try the newer drugs that are prevented.

Anxiety Attacks

Anxiety Attacks

I have always suffered from anxiety, however, recently I have been waking up with anxiety attacks. I think this is due to my migraines however I'm not sure. Has anyone else had anxiety attacks caused by migraines?

A MyMigraineTeam Member said:

I tend to have an increase of anxiety attacks during migraine and aura. Klonopin helps. My prayers are with you as both conditions are terrible.

Changing Medicine?

Changing Medicine?

Going to see my doctor today any 1 better migraine medication than another? I've been taking Topiramate 4x nightly it was working but lately ( over a year) it's been less effective I think it's time to change I'm still getting severe migraines..suggestions?

Seen the doctor he gave me sample of Nurtec and see how that works of not prescribing Sumatriptan?

A MyMigraineTeam Member said:

Thank you for the information. We are going to try to increase the dosage on the Topiramate and perhaps try the Sumatriptan again
