Hi there I’m new here , I could use some like minded people to talk to who understand what it’s like to have something chronic that affects your day to day. Looking forward to talking to you guys !
Welcome I used to have 4 migraines a week till I started Aimavig
I’ll have to ask my dr about that. Right now I’m only on a reactive med for when I have them. It’s weird for me. Sometimes I’ll go a couple weeks without one then I’ll go back to several a week.
I use to take trokendi for migraines but then it stopped working for me. I switched to Aimovig injections and now I only have one migraine a month.
2 recommendations already , I’ll have to look into that.
Hi there! Would love to talk. I started the botox process recently. I also take Topamax pills. These help immensely.
I heard Botox works really well but I was hesitant to try it. I had a close family member pass away from ALS and she used Botox for years. Every medication has a side effect and maybe the two are unrelated but I just didn’t want to risk it. Has that been the most successful medication for you?
From what I understand, botox is relatively safe, it just takes a couple sessions to work. Also, this medication has been the best for me. It is known to cause drowsiness, loss of appetite and therefore weightoss, and sometimes dizziness. I'm generally dizzy and tired with my migraines anyways so I don't feel the side effects compared to the symptoms of my actual migraines. You will know if this medication works for you in about a week's time span.
Hey hey!! I also have chronic migraines along with neuralgia. It was really awful but Ajovy seemed to really work for me. Open to chatting more. It's definitely a struggle getting through the day to day.
Emgality has worked wonders for me. Now I'm also taking Ubrelvy. The weather has been wrecking my sinuses though.
Nurtec also seems to work really well for me!
