7 weeks since first 140mg dose, 3 weeks since second 140mg dose. It hasn’t been of much help with headaches but it has produced constipation and severe lower back pain. Also, and most concerning, I’ve had a strange onset of Raynauds phenomenon that began a few days after the first dose. Extreme coldness, numbness, and loss of color in my hands…
Thank you for waking up that old thread, AskKim! That is so reassuring. I started B2 at 100 mg a couple weeks ago in a white capsule, was getting gas and stomach pains, switched to a 50 mg yellow tablet, and then even cut that in half when my digestion was still out of whack. Now I am having terrible nausea at night, almost no appetite during the…
Wondering about other migraine symptons like vertigo and tingling f the scalp, hands and feet. Those weren’t part of the survey. I consider those symptoms to be overlooked by many.

Would it be possible for you to add me as a friend?
I have had almost complete vision loss in my right eye for nearly 3 weeks now and could really do with chatting with someone with similar symptoms.
Thank you Joanna. This has been a nagging question for me forever. I guess I should “go with my gut” and continue to switch over to all glass and hope I do not break them too quickly.

Hi there @bscott, Starting a new medication is very scary especially when their is concern for side effects. Did you discuss this concern with your doctor? Some of shared that starting at the lower dose may help. Someone in our forum expressed the same concern if you’d like to take a look at this feedback. – https://migraine.com/topic/dosage/.…

This is interesting and thanks for your question. I personally do not know of any information related to migraine and plastic containers, but hopefully others might be along to share some insight. I have heard it is not good to microwave them especially once they start to break down & get that rough texture, but honestly do not have any resources…
Is there anyone else who has a Congenital Heart Defect, Liver cirrhosis (caused from heart medications), and Migraines? Please I need to know i’m not alone in having these 3 things.

anyone know where I can find out more information about amivog and if it is safe for someone who has congenital heart defect, atrial fib? Also same question for Emgality.
EVERYDAY I’m asked, “Have you taken your meds?” Being a chronic migraineur, taking my medication is not something I normally forgot, at least not for long. I try to just calmly answer yes and go on with the conversation. There are times though, I want to come back with, “No, why would someone with my problem take her medicine? I enjoy being in…
Topomax and CGRP — google it and there are lots of scientific articles. Apparently that is at least part of the reason topomax helps prevent migraines.
depressed and frusterated
I am curious what kinds of visual disturbance others are experiencing. I am not convinced that my recent problems are related to Aimovig, but the optometrist now wants me to see a retinal specialist, and the neurologist wants me to stop Aimovig. It feels like a terrible choice, because life is so much better without migraines!!!
