Hi has anyone had problems when their dose of topiramate?

Hi has anyone had problems when their dose of topiramate?

I have had my dose of topiramate increased from 25mg to 50mg per day and am now getting stomach cramps, not hungry and falling asleep all the time. I feel so shattered. Has anyone else had this problem please? Any help would be welcomed as I’m only going to see my GP tomorrow morning and it could be a battle. Many thanks.

Trying to understand my options

Trying to understand my options

Is severe migraines diagnosis considered a type of disability that I could maybe apply for FMLA. There are days I drag to work and vomit and cry from the pain and nausea if it’s something covered under FMLA. I wouldn’t jeopardize my job from missing more days than I’m allowed for sick time. I have missed my allotted sick time so I go to work regardless.

Daith piercing

Daith piercing

This seems to be the only option left. I have Chronic Migraines that are very debilitating. Lasting for days, with Auras, Nausea, Light sensitivity. I have to survive in a blackout room. Missing my life terribly.
How did you all find a Reputable place for your Daith Piercing(s)?
Thanks in advance for any and all responses. Hope you all have a pain-free day!

The earplugs I use are the squishy kind. You kinda roll them into a tube and insert in esr. Then they expand to fill the ear.

Has anyone had a seizure triggered by migraine?

Has anyone had a seizure triggered by migraine?

A few weeks ago I woke with the worst migraine I had ever suffered. I was so incapacitated I was unable to get out of bed or summon any help to get my medication. My next memory after that was waking up feeling extremely disorientated and distressed. It took me a while to realise that I had a badly bitten and bruised tongue, I had vomited and I had wet myself. The next few days are a bit of a blur. My daughter came to visit and immediately phoned for an ambulance as… read more

Does anyone else suffer with dilation of your pupils if so have they found out why?

Does anyone else suffer with dilation of your pupils if so have they found out why?

My pupils always look as if I just left the eye dr after they have put the drops in my eyes they do not constrict and stay huge all the time anyone else have this issue. It seems to hurt worse than it helps anymore I am even afraid to drive because I have spells that I get to where I cant see and never know when it will be.
