I’ve gained about 10lbs since I started my 1st CGRP injection over a year ago. It worked fairly well for a while but lost effectiveness over time. Then I tried Emgality, which did nothing at all. Today, I took my 2nd dose of Ajovy. I’ve not noticed any improvement so far but still hoping. I’ve noticed that, since beginning all this, I’ve gained weight. I KNOW I’m WAY out of shape, because, big surprise, I can’t DO ANYTHING! I would LOVE to exercise, but bouncing around is just begging for a migraine, & really, I don’t have to do much of anything to trigger it. Looking sideways will do it some days, & I’m not joking. I know, pathetic. But, even though I’d not been able to do much exercise, by being a bit careful not to overindulge, I had previously been able to keep my weight more or less at an acceptable range for me. I’m 5’3” (they tell me..apparently I’ve shrunken 1 3/4 inches! 😳😉, now weigh 143-ish, when I’d been 135-ish, & I’m 67 years old. So, I’m asking: is it just me, getting older & fatter? Or could it have to do with these injections? Has anyone else out there on CGRPs also gained weight while on them? And, btw, as most of you probably know, dieting isn’t all that easy, either, when you have chronic migraines. Hunger=headache =migraine. It drives me crazy. And that’s the short version.
