@gwynboom Is your son on a beta blocker or a calcium channel blocker? They're very often prescribed as a preventive for patients experiencing frequent or chronic migraines. Without Verapamil (360mg/day), my migraines are unreal. I am violently nauseated, have unbearable head pain and am extremely dizzy. With my Verapamil, the pain, dizziness and nausea is more manageable.

So far they have him on amovig (injection) neurotripiline (not sure of spelling) and propanol.. he has no pain with these episodes. In speaking with his oldest sister she experiences the same symptoms except she has pain ( she has been diagnosed with migraines) so far the meds have lessened the frequency of his symptoms.. instead of every day it’s now every other day … he was approved for his short term disability so now he can focus on seeing what works and what doesn’t verses seeing what works and working 70 to 80 hours a week
