Migraine from a SAH

Hi All,

I suffered a brain bleed ten years ago, (SAH), and after my initial recovery, terrible headaches settled in. After another angiogram to rule out something related to the bleed, I was diagnosed with migraine. I have tried as many of the preventives as possible and haven’t found that anything helps reduce the frequency or severity. Has anyone else post-hemorrhage had this experience? Have you found any relief?

  1. Hi
    Thank you for sharing your difficult experience with us. I hear how frustrated you are dealing with migraine pain. Please know you're not alone - we're here for you.
    While we wait for others to join the conversation I found this story you may find useful;
    If you're not already seeing a doctor who is an expert in treating migraine and headache disease, I think that may be the way to go. Here's why - general neurologists may be fine doctors but have a hard time being experts in one area because they treat so many conditions such as stroke, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's and more. Many general neurologists who treat people with migraine and headache disease claim to be experts but that may not be 100% accurate. A true migraine expert is board certified in headache medicine not all neurologists have, and treats migraine and headache all day, every day. Here is more information on why these doctors are beneficial and where to find them;
