Hey, I was diagnosed with vestibular migraine about 6 years ago and haven’t been able to go to the doctors for it, so I’ve kinda just been managing it as best as I can. Is there anything you’ve done from home that has helped a lot?

      I just got a script for propranolol! Little nervous to try it after reading the side effects but am hopeful!

      But as for at home maintenance: sumatriptan if you can find some, sunglasses, dimmable light switches, sleeping in a cold room, taking a coldish bath for as long as you can stand, some sort of NSAID to take the edge off, medical cannabis to feel better, ginger or mint tea for nausea, (mine was so bad I needed medication: zofran works a treat), getting light filters for my computer and phone (blue light bad, yellow light good, getting a green led bulb (green light takes the edge off of migraines!), sleep it off! Not trying to work through or despite them, really made a difference in how fast I got better from them. Also drink more water than you think you need when you’ve got a migraine!

      I’d try to get seen by a neurologist just to talk and make sure your current meds protocol are effective for your migraines. I didn’t know they could get worse over time. Once they start getting worse, they typically get pretty nasty and I had to stop work because of them. If I had been maintaining them, ie: taking meds round the clock for them and taking preventive meds as soon as I can, they’re less bad and generally last less long. (Context: I have chronic migraines that can last for months at a time)

      Interesting. I've tried propranolol but never Diazide. Do you take it during an episode?

      Hello! I was dizzy 24/7 until I started taking g Propranolol, a beta-blocker. It has helped me greatly! That, along with the diuretic Diazide works Fairly well for both my Ménière’s disease and my vestibular migraines. However, with the barometric pressure changes of the season, I do have more episodes.
