I'm 29 years old and had my first migraine 5 weeks ago. I had stroke-like symptoms (left side tingling/numb, forgot words, slurring words, vomiting, nausea and then the worst head pain I have ever had in my life). I went to Urgent Care then the hospital and was discharged the next day with instructions to f/u with a neurologist. All tests done at the hospital (MRI, CAT Scan, chest x-ray) were clear. While waiting for a neuro appointment, I had the exact same symptoms/auras followed by migraine 5 days later.
I finally saw a neurologist and was diagnosed with migraines. I received a new FDA approved injection (will have 3 of them once a month for prevention) after pills didn't help and so far I haven't had a full blown attack since the second one (it's now 4 weeks later) BUT almost everyday I have a pounding headache (or migraine). I've tried Nortriptyline, Rizatriptan, advil, Imitrex, Excedrin, Toradal injection and acupuncture.
My migraines/headaches started out of the blue and I can't seem to shake these pounding headaches. My doctor said botox may be the next thing I try. Thank Gd I haven't had the fullblown attack since but these pounding headaches are not fun.
Any recommendations, advice, tips please?? Thanks in advance!
