I have been having a bad background migraine for few years now. I also have migraine attacks occasionally which can last from a few days to a few weeks. I have had scans and been to see neurologists. A couple of months ago, I came to the national migraine centre. Apart from some medication for migraine attacks, the doctor also recommended me to have something to eat every few hours to keep the level of blood sugar, especially having some healthy fatty food to eat right before going to bed. I listened, but within a few weeks, I have put on 5kg and it didn't have obvious difference. I always have weight issues and it caused me some confidence issue. With this rapid weight gain, I get more stressed and therefore get more headaches. I wake up with a bad headache every day and try to live with it, but sometimes, I feel so dizzy that I feel that I am not able to do anything. I started cutting out the amitriptyline which I have been taking for a while, as it seems to have a counter effect when it comes to loosing weight. I was wondering whether anyone has similar situation before and how did/do you deal with it?
