hey ! i’ve been struggling with chronic migraine since september of 2020 and am constantly looking for relief . what have you guys found ?
Rizatriptan!! It’s a pain medicine that helps my migraine pain when it starts! Also, injectable medicines are a lifesaver!! Sooo good at preventing migraines. Also, maybe go to a chiropractor sometimes you could have muscle or joint tightness. Try tea, yoga, essential oils
what injectable meds do you use ? i’m currently using aimovig
I’m not 100% sure. I think it’s emgality
For me seeing a neurologist that specializes in headaches is key. I have had success with nurtec and Botox but everyone is different and unfortunately you might need to try a lot of different options before you find one that works for you ❤️ best of luck
i had success once with botox but did it several times after and got no results !! but i am on nurtec right now💕
Botox saved my life. I was basically home bound and in a constant loop of migraines.
I have been doing dry needling through my physical therapist to help with neck tightness and it has also helped my migraines. Hope this helps
do you flare up any after the needling ? that’s what made me quit doing that
I've had them most of my life but chronic since 2014.
For natural I use: eucalyptus or peppermint oil. Put a few drops behind my ears and some on the forehead.
Medicine: I take Amitripyline 100mg at Nighy. It's a prevention medication and it works really good. Has definitely helped mine out.
I also take Butalbutal/acetaminophen that is as needed when I get a migraine. Helps more then not when I take them. Sometimes I have to take more then one
So I do a lot of things to keep my migraines at a manageable level. I take trokendi xr, namenda, naratriptan (as a rescue), magnesium infusions, Botox, occipital nerve block, spg nerve block, ‘migraine protocol’ with a PT, and just recently experimented with depakote infusions. Everyone’s regimen is personal and tailored to their own needs, but these are the things I’m using to be a semi-functional human.
