Will the Pain End After Menopause 🤷‍♀️

I have been getting migraines for about 9 yrs now. I was just on usual over the counter stuff and it never worked. My Doc put me on topamax 2 yrs ago . My god I was spaced out and not on the planet for 3 weeks I nearly cut a finger off sharpening something . I then started with a 5 mg valium and maxalt wafer - IT has been a life changer, but migraines were coming every 2 or 3 days so nearly always medicated.

Now my Doctor has put me on beta blocker propranolol every night. The migraines still come but not as often. I still need a valium and wafer but only once a week not nearly as often and its stops them so much easier now

All the doctors I have seen say oh you are a tricky case , very hormonal ... So I only see lady docs now and sorry but all the male docs and specialists I have had say to me ok Amanda you just need to take 900 mg of Aspirin -- hellooo thats ok for a headache but have you ever had a migraine? πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Oh yes ok my left eye is nearly shut form the pain and I can't hardly speak as the pain can be that bad but oh yes I will just take some Aspirin πŸ˜‚ I will get just as much pain relief if I stick my have in a vice.πŸ€·β€β™€οΈπŸ˜©
