I'm new to the forum.
I'm 33 and have suffered migraines for most of my adult life, they feel horrendous for me but I know people suffer much worse with them. I was eventually prescribed sumatriptan which works really well (once the drugged up feeling passes).
My problem is I'm currently 10 weeks pregnant following IVF and on x3 lots of progesterone until 12 weeks. I used to have monthly migraines around my cycle but currently I'm getting them weekly, sometimes more and lasting for 3 days, I cant take my sumatriptan whilst pregnant. I'm having to ring in sick to work as i just cant cope (I'm a nurse and already been redeployed to HR to cover the COVID staff absence line).
I'm praying to get passed 12 weeks so i can stop the meds, but has anyone has any experience or anything that helps?
The pain is always directly behind my eye socket which moves to my temples. Hot showers seem to help and pressing on my head but I can only do that for so long. They were only ever on the left side, now I'm getting them on the right too.
Sorry for the long post.x
