Hi, I am a 40 year old male and have been Migraine free for 20 years. I used to get a lot when I was at school (exams years) and they were really bad. At the time I took Feverfew which seemed to help. By the time I started work at 18 ish I cant remember ever having to take a take off for Migraines so I guess they were under control.
Now at the good old age of 40 they have come back and although I am not having many (compared to a lot of people), I have had a few since June and its kicking my confidence!
I gave up a job I had done for 12 years in June and took my first Migraine the week I was due to finish. Since then I have had 3 full visual disturbance ones and a few lesser symptom ones.
I consider myself under a lot less pressure than I have been in years yet my health has gone down since stopping work with panic attacks, loss of weight and now the migraines.
I am looking for anyone who has or knows of similar having happened? Are they stress related? Should I go back on the feverfew? Really dont know what to do for the best 🙁
