Hemiplegic Migraine

Welcome to the Hemiplegic Migraine Forum

  1. hmmm. i have to add a reply to read so, i will say hello, my name is kerry. diagnosed with HM six months ago. prior to that was diagnosed with simply complex migraine w/aura or basilar migraine. i'm currently taking verapamil which helps a great deal, 400mg B2, and 600-800mg of magnesium citrate solution. my attacks are much quieter now but still come about 9 days out of 10. i'm always seeking new information.

    1. wow. its not that i didn't see any posts. it's that they're aren't any. ya, i know, my illness is the rarest of rare. always fun. i guess its time to go elsewhere for assistance. 🙁
