Propranolol

Propranolol

Recently had an MRI and it showed a lot of white matter which I know is common with chronic migraines. Diagnosed with ischemic brain disease after this. I’m having severe pressure in my head like it’s going to explode so my neurologist prescribed Propranolol ER. I’m kinda scared of the side effects though & if I have to stop it I’m worried about withdrawals. Starting at 60mg
Side effects with extended release?

Propranolol gave me intense nightmares

How Much Does The Weather Play A Role With Your Migraine

How Much Does The Weather Play A Role With Your Migraine

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.

Has A Tracking Calendar Work For You? How Do You Use It?

Well, obviously the migraines...but how will it help?

Has anyone used one and found them helpful, and if so...what did you gain from it?

Thanks!

Have a beautiful day.

I use the Migraine Buddy app on my phone. It has helped me to adapt to new migraine patterns (when medications or other interventions will help, what my triggers are, etc.). But the thing that makes… read more

Memory Loss

Memory Loss

Howdy again, Migraine Warriors. I'm dealing with a symptom that seems to have dual causes & I'm curious who else struggles with it & how they deal with it, especially ways to reverse the effects. Memory loss. Like, severe dementia-style memory loss. Scary, will-i-wake-up-tomorrow-&-not-know-who-i-am scary. My causes seem to be migraine compounded by years of gabapentin (neurontin) use. I've gotten several responses from my PCP about it from 'your only option is to quit the gabapentin & hope for… read more
