Has anyone ever had this happen to their eye with a migraine? Sometimes it’s so bad I can’t hardly see. Always the same eye. It comes and goes. Happens whenever I drive for more than 15 minutes (which triggers a migraine) or whenever the migraines at home cross a pain level of about 7. Sunglasses don’t help. The neurologist said it’s not a stroke, that it’s a nerve issue. It’s not a muscle weakness, I can force my eyes open if I try hard. My optometrist is fascinated by it.… read more
Has anyone here had experience traveling for care from AZ Mayo Clinic? I’m waiting to hear back from them after being referred and am wondering what other people’s experiences have been like...how long you stayed...how often you go back...etc.
I tried the between thumb, the feet pressure points, the squeezing your nose, the squeezing the bridge of your nose and all of that. For 2 days I had tears out of one eye. Left side. Light sensitivity, noise sensitivity, all of that jazz. BC powders, Goody Headache powders, Topamax, Maxalt, did not help. Any ideas?
It has got so bad and so hard to concentrate, I have lost 2 jobs and closed a business in the last year. Along with trying just about every treatment, sometimes I need to take a small amount of a narcotic, which in most jobs they don't allow.
I have no idea what is involved or how hard it is to get approved. Anyone who has any experience with this and can offer any info would be very much appreciated.
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.
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.
I am currently on Toprimate, Ritzatriptan Propranolol & Sumatriptan. I rarely have relief. I still have nausea and vomiting and the headache pain sometimes feels unbearable. My PCP just mentioned Friday of the Botox injections. Has anyone tried this and has it helped? Also is severe migraines considered a type of disability that I could maybe apply for FMLA.

It doesn’t really help at all. I got mine done in July before my trip to Disney and I still get them the same
