Hi my migraine history is over 20 years. I started using Triptans 7 years ago. I am 42.
Last December I had really bad month and I had migraine every week which each lasted about 4 days. GP put me on preventing medication. Proparanolol didn't do anything. Topiramate is working well now.
I was started with Topiramate 25mg one a day for several weeks and I didn't have migraine for 4 weeks! which made me really happy. I could not get rid of a severe migraine which comes with my ovulation.
Then GP put me Topiramate 2x 25mg (one each in the morning and before bed). That month headache didn't come but all other symptoms which comes with migraine came. I had nausea, dizziness, severe tinnitus, fatigue but not headache. I would had taken Imigran if I had headache but I didn't and those symptoms lasted about 3 days which would have done with headache migraine.
Was this called silent migraine? Should I had taken Imigran? Would Imigran take away thoese symptoms? Should I tell GP about this (to consider to take more Topiramate)?
Is silent migraine worse than headache migraine?
I usually have buzzing tinnitus 24/7 but with migraine it get really worse. It makes different low sounds and it gives me earache and feel pressing, sometimes tinnitus is too loud to hear anything but just right side (as my headache is only my right side?). Does anyone have tinnitus with migraine? I am refer to the ENT specialist but the appointment is in September.
