Anyone Else Get Deja Vu?

Anyone Else Get Deja Vu?

I know it's common for people with epilepsy, but they've ruled out epilepsy and told me it's just a migraine aura. Does anyone else experience this? What usually happens is I get the deja vu in my sleep, wake up with the deja vu (it's really intense) often I have excess saliva or I have nausea and vomiting. Soon after the deja vu I experience severe headache (migraine).

I Only Get Migraines When Barometric Pressure Drops, Usually Before A Storm. Any Good Remedies For This?

I only get migraines when barometric pressure drops, usually before a storm. If I don't drink coffee or something with caffeine right away, nothing helps at all. Does anyone have good remedies for this kind of migraine?

A MyMigraineTeam Member said:

I wish I did. When there are a series of storms, I take a low dose of prednisone for about a week. Seems to break the cycle.

Triptan Overuse Rebound Headaches

Triptan Overuse Rebound Headaches

What do you guys know about triptan overuse headaches?

I just learned of them from a nurse at my neurologist’s office. This had never been mentioned before by my neurologist and he prescribes me 30 rizatriptans per month and 7 frovatriptans per month, which covers my 20 migraines (if they decide to work). However, I had no idea that by taking the prescribed medication as directed, I could actually be causing more migraines. But if I don’t take them, I’m in excruciating pain and am… read more

A MyMigraineTeam Member said:

I don't get them anymore since I rarely take pain meds of any sort and I don't remember how my rebound migraines felt. However, I have a huge operation coming up on Dec 21st that will require heavy… read more

Intractable Migraines- Any Ideas On How To Stop Them?

Intractable Migraines- Any Ideas On How To Stop Them?

I get lots of intractable migraines that last longer that 48-72 hours & don't respond to standard treatment (also called status migrainosus). I would love to know if any of you have ideas on how to treat them?

To complicate things further I can't take ergots or triptans because of severe side effects to these medications in the past. My "go-to" medicine for this is a steroid taper (was 4mg methylprednisolone taper pack but eventually that stopped helping & the dr upped the dose to a 20mg predniread more

Sumatriptan And Excedrin Migraine Are Not Working As Well Anymore, What Do You Use?

Sumatriptan And Excedrin Migraine Are Not Working As Well Anymore, What Do You Use?

Last weekend I ended up with a 4 day long migraine. Sure it was from getting overheated. But nothing worked to take it away. I have a prescription for Sumatriptan and use Excedrin Migraine also. days 3 and 4 were the worst. Went to the neuro dr on the 5th day and he gave me a shot of Toradol and a shot of a steroid, then put me on Prednisone taper pack. The toradol worked great. Didn't have a headache for 5 days, then woke up with one again on the 6th day. I get the Botox injections, but… read more
