Back in January, I resolved to be more proactive with my migraines, but I'm finding I'm just as frustrated. Not to sound like a Debbie Downer, but here is everything I’ve tried so far this year, and my migraines are no better.
Supplements I’ve tried
Magnesium-I've noticed no difference.
B2-my face gets super hot and my pee turns a toxic yellow color.
New Doctors I’ve Tried
One neurologist-she only tried to push topamax on me.
One family doc-she recommended me to a headache clinic I can’t afford.
New Drugs I’ve tried with my regular doc
Maxalt-bad side effects
Fiorinal-panic attack side effects due to the caffeine.
It only made things far worse. Imagine Uncle Fester’s head in a vise on The Addams’ Family, but with no relief.
