I am curious in this migraine world, how many have had a spinal tap?
I have had migraines since the age of ten. I have had them daily now for 17 years. There is nothing left to be done for me. I had a spinal tap, and no it is not painful, not like the old days. I did find out my spinal fluid pressures are double the normal level and plays into the migraines. While there isnt much that can be done for this, It is nice to know this may be a major factor in the migraines. For the pressures, you can have a shunt put in or there is one med you can take that has non reversible side effects, neither of these are options for me. I guess it may be something someone might want to mention to their neurologist. Can you, the doctors, advisers, comment on this topic please.( Its a relief in knowing that this may have been the issue since childhood causing the migraines. vs being told as a kid it was all in my head.)
