I was taking amitriptyline for about 4 years for chronic migraine however I recently developed an allergy to it and I am now relying solely on Botox for pain management.
In the last month my migraine pain has become quite bad, to the point that I am going to ask my neurologist for different medication. However, a few weeks ago I had a routine opticians appointment and discovered that my optic nerves have 'changed shape', become 'fuzzy' and look 'suspicious'. I have had a CT-scan and I am currently waiting for the results from the eye department of my hospital.
I was told the results would take about a week, and it will be two weeks on Tuesday and I have had no news. I do not know whether to wait for the results before I contact my neurologist or not?
I am feeling quite overwhelmed, and wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience? Could it be a side effect of the migraines?
Also, any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated!
