That sensation wore off the last week of the 4 week after First Injection. 2 monthly injection was a week ago and I had my worse…

CobyMeg
have you considered looking into IV ketamine therapy. It’s working for depression and migraines in a revolutionary way. You do not need a consult from your regular doctor, just a copy of your records to prove you do suffer from intractable migraines and depression. It IS a silver lining.

Has anybody been to the Mayo Clinic headache center for treatment? I am interested if it is just another nuerology clinic or what. It would be a 14 hour drive for me, so I just want to know if it is worth it or not.

I’m waving from the Gold Coast, in Australia 😉
If it doesn’t strain you, read up on Cyclone Oma which has just meandered down from PNG-way.

One thing I’m thankful for – I rarely vomit with my migraines, even if I feel nauseous. However I do get Alice symptoms; earlier today, it was like scalpels slicing through to my shinbones and stomach, as…

I just went through this myself.
I’d started Aimovig in early December but it was having absolutely no impact. I’ve been taking Almotriptan and two Tylenol Ultra pretty much every day for many, many months.
After moving back to Canada after years in Europe, I got a new neurologist who didn’t immediately ask about my drug use even when I told him…
