I've suffered from a constant headache/migraine? of varying intensity (mild and ignorable to quite severe) since I was 17 (I'm 24 now). I'm looking for something that would help with these constant headaches and am wondering if amlodipine/Norvasc could help. I don't at all have high blood pressure though. I've tried amitriptyline and topamax, neither of which worked. I also get a strange noise in my ears when the headache becomes bad. The noise only stops if I am totally still (not moving, not breathing). I've seen a neurologist about it and they are getting an mri (results not back yet). I don't have any tingling or numbness anywhere in my body. The pain is mostly in my forehead, temples, and face, but also on the back of my head, jaw, and behind my eyes. I have had a definite migraine once when I was 13. Parts of my body on one side became numb and I felt exhausted then got the headache. I had an mri at that time which came back normal.
Jacob, I have seen some people use Norvasc, Inderal, and some other beta blockers to help for migraine prevention. But really I think you're doing all the right stuff right now wait for your results to come in then talk to the doctor about trying one of those that have helped for headaches to a migraine. Good luck and hope this gets better for you soon. Chuck1957
