I am 65 years old and have suffered from severe migraine headaches since I was 18 years old. They subsided after menopause. I take bio Identical natural hormones and they have started again. It's my understanding they could be estrogen related.
Yes, it can be estrogen related if your estrogen levels change. I wear an estrogen patch and am your age. The estrogen patches have a steady dose and are far safer than the pills. And estrogen helps to prevent bones from deteriorating further. I find that Magnesium Citrate is the best for magnesium which I take for my migraines along with COQ10 and Petadolex (available online). Magnesium Citrate is made by Nature Made which is a reputable vitamin place (available on Amazon and also in stores). Petadolex is an herbal which is fully evaluated by Germany since it is made there where they evaluate all their herbals unlike the US where about a quarter of all herbals have contaminants like Lead in them or not the dose that they claim. But Petadolex is pricey--about $55.00 a month. Good luck with your quest to control your migraines.
jnave; I would go through your doctor first it could be just the type hormone your on. But also they have some pretty safe beta blockers that won't effect your blood pressure and are very cheap that i have taken for years and years and have not had a migraine sence starting. IT'S the generic inderal la I take and has given me back my head to a point. if you try the magni/citrate be careful the liquid is used for a laxative that works pretty fast also. but the tablet is different in the binders so you could give that a try but your doctor should know your having problems with the hormones
