Tired Of These Migraines!!

I get really terrible migraines. I pretty much have a normal headache everyday, but every few months I get mind-numbing migraines that knock me out for 2-3 days. I feel like Im going to vomit, i get dizzy (sometimes even passing out), and the only thing that helps is to just sleep. I have had head scans and they have all come back normal. I have tried eating different things to see if they are caused by different foods, but so far no luck. I am so tired of these migraines because they make me miss work. I just want them to stop.

try a daily preventative - go to your dr. and ask for the anti depressants that have a side effect of constricting the blood vessels in the brain, so they can't expand and cause a migraine. You will get a low dose. Also beta blockers. I take both and it has been a wonderful outcome. I went from migraines like you to only have 2 a month, and very minor and they totally responded to the immetrex within 1 hour. Awesome. I hope you the best. My were so bad I had to wear a leg brace to because I would loose feeling in my right leg and foot, the brace kept me from spraining my ankle cause I had no control. I was on crutches a lot the day after a migraine because I was waiting for feeling to return to my right side - I needed the support.
