Do You Run Into Things Before, During, Or After A Migraine Or Slight Headache?

Do You Run Into Things Before, During, Or After A Migraine Or Slight Headache?

I feel very clumsy during a migraine and sometimes run into things especially with my head. Today I think it happened due to the start of a headache. Does anyone else have this happen to them?

A MyMigraineTeam Member said:

I get brain fog, but not clumsiness. But, a migraine is a brain event, so clumsiness would not be unexpected.

How About The People Out There Who Have Used Depakote? What Have Been Your Experiences W It?

How About The People Out There Who Have Used Depakote? What Have Been Your Experiences W It?

It is the only drug I have not tried, as it interacts w one of my other meds, and also is known to cause weight gain. I have already gained so much weight from lack of activity from migraine 2-5 xs a week. I’m terrified of gaining more because than I will have more health problems. Really interested in everyone’s experience w it.

A MyMigraineTeam Member said:

I would not do it if it interacts with another med. Drug interactions can be worse than the initial problem.
