I started having migraines in my 30's. They came every month before my periods, were unresponsive to meds, and went away the day after I started. Luckily my cycles were regular so I learned to plan vacations and other events around my migraines. After a total hysterectomy while in my 40's my headaches went away completely. It was such a blessing. For some reason I began to have infrequent migraines, one or two a year, in my 50's. Still no real help with Maxalt and now the course is unclear since I don't have a period to bring them to an end. They stop when they stop, nothing I can do. In February I gave up alcohol and started eating a healthy, low carb diet. 11 days ago I woke up with a migraine, took the Maxalt, and it was gone the next day. But two days later I woke with it again - usual pattern with one-sided headache, dizziness, and nausea. It was so bad that I took the maximum dose of 3 Maxalt during the day. The next day the headache was a little less but the dizziness had become full blown vertigo. During the next week I took an occasional Maxalt, 3 days in a row of Excedrin Migraine, and finally Dramamine because the motion sickness was so bad. No meds in a few days now but still really dizzy. It is now a total of 11 days. It's a little late but I may have found the trigger - the low carb yogurt with sucralose I was eating on my diet. Stopped eating it once I read about the possible trigger but does anyone have any ideas what I can do for this dizziness and motion sickness?
