I’ve been expecting migraines for the last 10 years at least (I’m in my mid 20s) and have been to many specialists and doctors trying to find something to help and I’ve never felt listened to so I’m turning here for some help. I want to know what has worked for anyone with menstrual migraines. I can’t be on the pill because it makes my migraines worse and I’ve tried different triptans with limited luck. My periods aren’t predictable, but I can tell when I’m going to start because I get the worst migraines about 2 days before it starts. This month my migraine was so bad that I had to call out of work two days in a row. I took my rizotriptan as much as I could and it was not even touching the problem.
I’m getting desperate and depressed because I feel so helpless. My migraine was so bad that I couldn’t stand up long enough to shower or even let my dog out without feeling like throwing up or passing out.
