Migraine felt like poison in my brain

Hello I am Drew and was diagnosed with Migraine headaches after years of reoccurring headaches that made me vomit over and over again. I finally went to a neurologist and had an MRI done. The doctor who reviewed my MRI showed where in my brain there was some “white spots of matter” as signs that I get Migraine headaches.

My neurologist prescribed me Sumatriptan (g. for Imitex) and it has been a miracle drug for me.

    Hi Drew,

    Thank you for sharing your story with us! Good to hear you’ve found success with sumatriptan – it works wonders for some of us!

    It’s not uncommon for people with long term migraine disease to see white matter lesions on a MRI. Many of us have them, including myself.

    We hope to hear more from you!
