Hi everyone! I am a 32 years old woman and have migraine with and without visual aura since 17.
I usually have auras once a year, but I’ve also been almost 3 years without them twice in my life.
Almost 3 months ago, I started having more episodes of migraine with aura, I think I’ve had in this 3 months more auras than my entire life. I have to say that this frequent episodes started two days after stop to taking excitalopram. ( I have been taking a low dose and stop it because we where planing to have a baby).
Usually get them once a week or even every five days. I have seen two neurologist , who specializes in migraines , and one of them sent me to do an MRI of the brain and blood vessels and everything was normal, says that probably is electric because I had a year with stress and it seems I have a small hormonal imbalance that made me have irregular periods. He give Lamotigrine to take but I don’t see changes in the frequency.
As it is the first time in my life that my frequency of auras has changed, I wonder if anyone else experienced and what you have done to decrease the frequency. I feel so sad to be like this, we were planing to have a baby 3 months ago and now I find myself with trial and error of medications to see if I can get my normal life again.
Non of this two neurologist told me anything, but this episodes start two days after stop the excitalopram, I will ask to the professionals if it could be a relation with it.
I will appreciate if you can give me some feedback about your migraines with aura, did you have them more frequent time to time?
