    I’ve had migranes since 5yrs old, chronic daily migranes since age 16, I’ll be 50 in August. I’ve always been proactive for my health, I’ve tried many things through the years…My question is, what vitamins have proven to be the best for a woman with migrane?

    Was on Aimovig 5 months. Partner said personality changed for the worse. I had severe anxiety. Went to 1/2 dose 70 from 140. Migraines fully back. Anyone else discovering side effects?

    Hi @chaselife, I am so sorry to hear that Aimovig was not effective & that it got worse. We have a forum page dedicated to those that have both tried it & another for members to share side effects. Feel free to explore what others are saying about Aimovig.

    My question is a reflection of what I am seeing as a general trend and would appreciate your thoughts on the issue. In the past I would self medicate and be able to deal with most migraines. Unfortunately, I would have a few each year that would go beyond what I was comfortable self medicating or be more pain than I could cope with. I would go to the critical care department were a doctor would deal with my symptoms and provide pain relief. I would be monitored to ensure I was stable and be sent home to sleep it off.

    In the last five years, I have gone seeking help and because of current non-opioid policies have not been helped. A few times the critical care doctors have made things much worse with unusual medication.

    The unintended consequence that I see trending is that I am much more reluctant to seek out professional care. As I read more horror stories about other migraines sufferers also not getting appropriate care, in a safe setting where if something does go badly medical staff can assist, there will be more migraine suffers who will self medicate beyond their comfort level and may overdose themselves at home.

    By not providing adequate care through critical care departments, I can see a unhealthy trend emerging. I cannot see an avenue to help change the system. It also appears somewhat unique to chronic pain suffers as different from maybe cancer pain.

    Does anyone else see this trend evolving? Is anyone researching this issue so it can be recognized as an issue? How can we migraine suffers get necessary care at a critical care clinic?

    Advocacy extends down to the migraineur/doctor relationship. What are specific actions that you consider productive for a migraineur to take when working with their medical team to move their treatment forward?
