Has anyone used glasses tinted to block blue/green light? My photo sensitivity seems to be getting worse. I were glasses and have prescription sunglasses, but I find it a hassle going form one pair to another and don't like being inside with the sunglasses on.

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
