Next month will be 1 year of having a headache/migraine everyday. During this one year i have been to my primary for help who then turned me to a neurologist that he recommended. My first appointment with her went well and for the first time i felt hopeful that she was going to be able to help me. She put me on Propanol and Vitamin B2. I took these two times a day for 4 months. B2 wasn’t helping so i was taken off of that and the Propanol was upped to 120 mg. For about a a week i was headache free and feeling like myself again. Just as soon as i got used to being free, my headaches started again everyday. After having a bad reaction to a medicine i was given i decided to search for another neurologist. I stopped all the medicine i was on in preparation for my new doctor. My first impression of her was much better than my first doctor. She was confident that we can grab ahold of this monster inside my head and help me live my life again. I started nortriptyline and had a session with a cognitive behavior therapist in hopes that the combination of medicine and mindful healing would be able to help me. I have been diagnosed with anxiety and depression in the past and find that i do not cary stress well so i think that CBT will be a good thing for me even if it doesnt help with my migraines. After a couple weeks of taking the nortriptyline i began to have weird side affects like weakness and shaking in the mooring to the afternoon and muscle pain. I decided to stop the medicine for a couple days and will be starting it again, figuring the side affects are much better than the suffering i am going through everyday. This is my first forum post and I’ve been researching a lot about migraines and natural healing remedies to help, hoping this forum could come in handy and be a place to talk about my suffering with people who may understand a little more than others.
