I've just stumbled across this website and read many of your stories which now make my situation seem no way near as bad!
I've always suffered from migraines since I was a teenager but in July this year, I had migraine symptoms which then lead to me having what I would describe as a short fit, it was probably about 1 minute long and I didn't pass out. Since then I was very light headed and had a migraine nearly every other day, including another migraine which was the worst I had ever had with another 'fit' and ended up in A&E. I went to the opticians and was referred to a neurology specialist by my GP, in the opticians I had a small fit when he shone lights in my eyes.
since then I have been put on Propronalol by the GP.
The neurology specialist has just said migraines, no explanation or anything, just migraines. Migraines. Migraines. I now haven't had a full migraine for 1 month which is better than once a week but I can't go out in daylight without getting a really bad headache and my vision going blurred. Not even bright daylight, dull daylight is probably worse, as soon as I'm back inside or it goes dark, the headache disappears after about 20minutes. I had another Neurology appointment and again oh just migraine ... start taking this medication along side your propranolol.
This is not making any sense to me. Something has changed since July and I'm not getting any answers, its affecting my life and I'm just getting MORE medication. Medication is just covering up the problem and not fixing it.
Does anyone have any experience to help with this? I'm thinking of making another appointment with the optician as he seemed to be more help than the neurologist.
Thanks for reading.
