Hi all. I'm basically just here to get a bit of advice and some help if anyone can. I'll start with a bit of brief history. I'd never had a migraine till I was 23 and I had just started to have the depo injection, it was after my 3rd injection that the migraines worsened, I was getting about 3 a week at the worse so decided to stop taking it. The migraines stopped once the injection wore off and I was migraine free for 2 years, then I got one or to for a year. 6 months ago the migraines came back with a vengeance, as far as I can tell there is no trigger for them. I have started a migraine diary and the longest I have gone in the last 6 months without a migraine is 15 days, at one point I had 4 in 1 week. I have been to the doctor and he's put me on 10mg amitriptyline and 50mg sumatriptan. Both of which seem to be doing nothing.
The reason I am writing is because I feel the migraines are getting worse, today for example I was suffering my usual aura at work, visual disturbances and difficulty seeing out of my right eye, what worried me though was I got really bad brain fog. I was having trouble finding the right words and ending up coming out with gibberish most of the time and at one point I forgot how to type on the computer, I knew what I wanted to do and how to do it but my fingers and brain just didn't want to cooperate I just ended up tying gibberish. I've never suffered this kind of symptom with my aura and was wondering if this can be normal. I'm due to go back to the doctors at the end of the month to see how I've got on with this medication but I'm just wondering whether it's worth pushing for some investigation into the cause.
Thanks in advance for any help and apologies if this post makes no sense in certain places, currently woozy on a cocktail of painkillers seeing as I've ran out of sumatriptan.
