Hi everyone, My name is Linda and I have been suffering with valsalva headaches for the last 18 months. They started very suddenly, brought on by laughing and coughing. The pain stops me in my tracks and lasts for about 5-10 seconds each time. They are excrutiating and it terrifies me socialising with friends as when I laugh (which is often) I end up practically screaming in pain. My neurologist has recommended I take Indomethacin 3 times a day and also a stomach protector at the same time. Please tell me I'm not alone. Does anyone have any alternative remedies that may help? Many thanks.
When was your last migraine check-up?
