Hi everyone! I have been dealing with Chronic migraines sine my 20's. The Neurologist has me on Zonisamide and increased the dosage but it is not working. I have migraines pret thg much every day and miss work also i am on FMLA at work. I was thinking about trying Aimovig. Has anyone tried this and what experience did you have. Also what about Botox? I am scared to try it.
I can't believe how much better I feel now that the temperature has dropped. There also does not seem to be the big fluctuations in the temperature, humidity and barometric pressure. The thing that is still messing with my head is precipitation. I know the day before it's going to rain, then it rains and then it takes a day to feel better. That's three days out of my life. Weather migraines are really bad, anybody else have them? In sure lots of us do. Anyone know how to avoid or cope… read more
Weather changes affect our entire body.
I've been taking emgality for about 6 months now and I've found that some months it helps but other months it doesn't.
It helped at first but towards the end the migraine comes back.
I’m having trouble getting my insurance to cover Emgality and my neuro says that Aimovig might be easier to get through for some reason. However, I’m rather concerned about the severe constipation side effect that has caused some patients to need surgery as that has been an issue I’ve had my whole life. How have you guys combatted that side effect? Any info you think would be useful would be much appreciated! TIA! 😊
Many of the treatments for migraine cause constipation. My neurologist prescribed magnesium for it. It's a big help!
‘I just joined this group about a week ago so I am still trying to figure it out in the meantime. Today I had a follow-up with my Nero doctor and he suggested going the Botox route. I was wondering who all here has done it, and if so do you think it helped?
Is anyone else grinding their teeth? My bottom teeth hurt so bad from the grinding and my jaw is so sore. I am doing this during the day and not at night. I am taking Alprazolam ER 0.5mg 4 times a day. Helps some days more than others. I do 70g of Amovig and Botox injections.
What has ppl found to help their migraine's i want to try the Botox shot but not sure if my insurance will pay for it. my cousin got the Daith piercing but it didn't help her so i don't want to try it
Mine already get blurry
Has anyone had any luck with Aimovig injections? I just started my first injection today. I have chronic migraine and nothing I have tried in the past has helped. Hoping this will work for me!
Look up the side effects if you have any stomach problems like conpatation I wouldn't do it. There 3 other shots beside this shot.
