Hi, I'll try and keep this as brief as possible.
I've suffered with migraines since the age of 12, I'm now 29. I've been on numerous types of medication over the years to try and ease my migraines.
When I get one I get loss of vision in one eye, then the pain starts and I get terrible nausea. The only way to make them stop is with sumatriptain, which sometimes doesn't work, or going to sleep. Sleeping is not always an option though, I have two children and work full time.
For the last few weeks I have been waking up every morning with a migraine, so as soon as I open my eyes it's like I've skipped the loss of vision part and go straight to the pain. It has been awful and it's really starting to get me down. My loss of earnings have been terrible as I don't get paid sick pay and every day is now becoming a struggle.
I take amatriptilin and antenolol (excuse the spelling) and as mentioned above I also take sumatriptain when the migraine strikes.
Has anyone experienced anything similar?
Look forward to hearing from you.
