Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for this post! So many people don’t understand that I have a migraine even on my non-pain days. Double & triple vision happen daily, I never know when vestibular symptoms will attack (my physical therapist thinks it’s the tiny bones in the ear causing those symptoms).
I’m blessed to have family & close friends…
Thank you for responding! I have gained more knowledge about the whole process since being a part of this. I think that I expected things to happen quicker.

Thank you for sharing that with us. I’m thrilled to hear things are looking up for you!!!
I have heard this medication runs out of steam, so to speak. Upping the dose may be helpful.

Thank you for the update! You made my day – I’m so happy to hear you are seeing improvements!
Thank you for sharing that with us and I look forward to more updates.
WOW – that’s amazing!!
Tylenol may work for some people, but not so much for others. Migraine falls on a spectrum from mild to severe, and some people get relief from migraine pain with acetaminophen. I do know if we take too much, it can cause harm. Something you may want to speak with your doctor about.
