Hi everyone. I am totally new to this sort of thing but like all of you my migraines have driven me to look at lots of alternatives. It is nice to hear I am not alone and that there are people out there that understand. Know one in my family suffers them like I do. I have suffered them on and off all of my life but they progressively got worse about 4 years ago and then October 2015 they really changed for the worse. I now have a wide range of symptoms and after an incident I feel unwell for about 10 days. It good really bad last summer and I had lots of tests and a MRI scan, thankfully everything came back fine. I started on some propranolol tablets 10mg twice a day as I have low blood pressure. It really seemed to help and I didn’t have a migraine from October 2016 until January when the tablets made me really tired and were affecting my everyday life. I am now on one a day and looking to come off them. That said in early March I and had a chronic migraine that was really bad. The pain killers I am prescribed don’t help me and often a mixture of ibreofen and paracetamol help but nothing did this time. I was very sick and had a upset stomach, the pain was unbearable. I am now very frightened of having another one and find that I am watching what I eat and drink all the time. I am avoiding some social activities in case it sets it off. Stress is a big trigger for me and I am trying hard to manage it. If anyone can recommend anything I would be grateful. I was looking into acupuncture. Thank you.
