I suffer with chronic severe migraines (which have been every day for the past few months). I had a nerve block 3 weeks ago which has helped but the effects are wearing off now and this right sided agonising migraine is coming back.. Spoke to nuro the other day she said that repeated nerve blocks aren’t ideal in the long run as it’s steroids they use and it’s not really a preventative more good to get you out of pain when it’s gone like every day.. But I can get it again if am in agony again so as and when needed really.. She now wants me to start nortriptyline and I would love to hear what everyone’s experiences has been like? Has it helped? What where your side effects etc?.. The nuro said she will see me again on video chat in a few weeks to see how I getting on and if am not getting any better could try Botox..
Thanks for reading and I hope yous are all well and pain free! X
