I don’t know if anyone can help me. I developed migraines at the age of 36 last Jan and I’ve still not managed to recover properly. When I was on 60mg of Propranolol I felt I struggled a lot less but felt very tired,vague and unable to think straight.
I’ve reduced to 45mg and now I’m having attacks again.
What I’m wondering is firstly does all the medication have these side affects? Or do some people manage to get their lives back and work normally?
The other thing is that although I suffer a lot of the symptoms listed for aura migraines , I find it doesn’t go in text book phases. Like yesterday I knew I was suffering an attack triggered by a strip light, started to feel very vague, and my eye sight went weird, followed by nausea and feeling very distant. My face on the left side feels like it slides. I get very little head pain. Today- I still feel ill, with the dark patches in eyes and ice cream head ache.
Can this all be classed as migraines?
Any help would be really appreciated. Thank you.
