Hi guys, I’m a newbie to both this site and recently diagnosed with silent migraines any advice would be very welcome.
It all started in June. I gave birth to my second daughter who was sadly stillborn, she was a day over due. This was obviously devastating. For weeks later I was watching TV with my four year old and I went blind in one eye, I got checked out and Dr said it was migrainous. Since then on a daily basis I get visual disturbances like zig zags, blind spots, cloudy vision, lightening strikes ect, I feel permently travel sick, I’ve had one really bad vertigo attack and several small spinny attacks, numbness in face, almost constant adrenaline waves, tiredness like I’ve never experienced before, brain fog, aches and pains, loud tinnitus and muscle twitches. Like I said I get these EVERY DAY. I’ve had MRI to eliminate other causes and thankfully nothing sinister showed up but I just can’t go on living like this. They think the stress of what happened bought them on but how can I stop it? I have tried (excuse spellings) amatryptine, proponolol, sumatryptan and currently trying piloting. Anyone know if meds ate effective on silent migraines? I have a four year old who I want to enjoy spending time with and that’s hard to do when I’m bed bound for weeks at a time! HELP PLEASE!
