Jul 5, 2012 · Migraines..seeking relief..is MAYO GOOD FOR MIGRAINES????? in Brain & Nervous System

Jeff, thank you so much for your ideas. I appreciate anything at this point in time. I have a difficult time getting a good night’s sleep, so that could be part of the problem. I am currently trying to change my diet and cut out sugar, so that’s quite a coincidence that you mentioned it! My husband is diabetic, but he is the culprit when it comes to bringing sugar into the house! I have neck/shoulder problems that resulted from a car accident in 2002..had two neck fusion surgeries and I think this contributes somewhat. I’m still weighing my options, but I will certainly take your advice and try the easy stuff first! Thanks for caring enough to write. Have a blessed day, – Judi

Jul 5, 2012 · Migraines..seeking relief..is MAYO GOOD FOR MIGRAINES????? in Brain & Nervous System

Hi, this is my first time here, so I appreciate any input you guys might have. I have suffered from migraines since my teenage years. I am now 52. They are still here! I also happen to have multiple sclerosis, but it is not the type that really interferes with my life…I just have lesions on my brain, some dizziness and weakness and some memory issues that I may have anyway! But the migraines..they are truly horrible. I have them on more days than I don’t. My neurologist has put me through 2 rounds of Botox injections, but we saw no improvement at all, so we discontinued. I am truly at my wits’ end and saw that Mayo treats migraines. If anyone has an experience they could share, that would be much appreciated. I take 100 mg of topiramate daily as a preventative, take maxalt when they hit. If that doesn’t work, I have Demerol tablets to take. If that doesn’t work, I have stadol nasal spray, these meds are used along with zofran or phenergan for nausea. I feel like I take washy too much medicine, but the headaches just keep on coming. They aren’t rebound headaches…I’m careful to space medicine out. I have tried acupuncture also… I think at my age there really isn’t much I haven’t tried. I will be anxious to see if anyone has any experiences to share. Thanks, – J
