Dear all, I had viral meningitis in October 2012 and its nearly 3 years after now! I have chronic migraines from the VM and have had for over 2 years. Off and on. Sometimes more on than off. I am trying botox injections from my neurologist every 3 months as well as daily propranolol and endep. Just wondering if anyone else has any relief from migraines and if so, what are you taking? Im in day 8 now of straight migraines. Had two days off but then it came back. I do take the triptans twice a week for migraines as well but not allowed to have any more than twice a week.
I find that if I didnt have to work and study I can rest and cope with them. But as I am trying to change my life with a new career to make better money, I am busy and its quite hard to cope with the disability. How are the rest of you going with headaches? If you still have them, how long ago was your attack of VM? I keep wondering if this will be forever. That this is it! This is life. I am wondering how people are who are ten years plus after VM. Or even five years plus from VM.
All the VM side effects are gone for me, except the evil and persistant migraines. The gift that just keeps on giving. I still get very fatigued, but thats from studying a masters level degree and working and migraines! Aaarrrgggghhh.
Is this it do you reckon? Doomed to migraine land?
I am having trouble dealing with the reality that I am chronically disabled, and this a reality for me. Maybe if I dont fight it so much it will be easier. Any ideas?
