Hi everyone I'm new here.
Just a bit of background I have suffered with migraines since I was about 13 (when I started my period) they are hormonal. I don't think I have any actual triggers like food smell etc just hormonal I think.
I have been tried on some different preventative the first was pizotofen which was ok but made it impossible for me to get up in the mornings so I had to stop them.
Then they tried me on beta blockers which didn't work very well (I must admit I was a bit slack with taking them) these were all tried years ago and I havnt tried a preventative since.
They are now giving me imigran for when I have them which is good but I can't take them when working because I look after vulnerable adults. They work very well though.
They are getting worse though and I'd rather have a preventative than something I take for an attack.
I get a migraine around a week before my period then it will last 1 to 2 weeks on and off then for about another week I get that awful hangover type feeling everyday.
I'm also overweight and trying to diet but I get that hunger where I need whatever right there and then and I end up binging.
Sorry to ramble just thought if anyone had a similar story and has something that worked for them that u havnt asked the Dr about?
I also take far too many paracetamol because of this and I have had tests on my liver which were not too good.
Thank you x
