I suffer from vestibular cyclical migraine, I started getting them when I was 17. Since i was young a gave always had triggers of msg, chocolate, processed meats-sausages. but nothing that made them constant until i was 17. It has ruined my life. I don't have a job, and have been trying to finish my 3 year uni degree... I'm up to year 8. I have migraines thAt start and continue for 2-3 weeks at a time. Then I have one week of no symptoms, complete bliss, then he'll comes around again. With the migraine I have pain temporarily, along eyebrow line and middle of head, nausea, vomiting, vertigo, photophobia. I have tried almost every migraine med and prevention med available with always weird weird side effects.
The usual ibrophen, aspirin, Topomax- hair loss,sweating, nausea, vomiting, word finding, confusion. Propranolol- dizziness, fainting episodes. Indocid- vomiting. Oxycodone- vomiting. Sandomigran- weight gain, nausea, vomiting, dizziness. Amytriptyline- severe drowsiness sleeping 17 hours on 15mg, nausea,vomiting. Imigran- pain in head, jaw lock. Maxalt- hallucination, panic attack. I tried all of these drugs, I stayed on most for at least 3-4 months because I'm so desperate. But nothing works!!! I tred every combination pill as well because my neurologist said its linked to my menstrual cycle. But all either cause migraines or make me vomit.
I have no where lose to turn I cry every day which causes migraines in me too I'm not depressed when I'm well for that week, I'm out happy as can be, exercising doing everything :)
I just can't have a normal functional life. I need help please! Help me.ball suggestions will be helpful :)
