Thank you for reaching out to us for help for your husband. Given the complexity of his story with the previous head injury, it is difficult to know exactly where to begin. First and foremost, if he is not currently being followed by a neurologist or traumatic brain injury specialist, he needs to be evaluated. Traumatic brain injuries, ranging from concussions to contusions to hemorrhages can lead to a variety of long term or delayed symptoms. Headaches are somewhat common as a lingering problem after injury, and depending on the extent of the original injury, seizures ...
My wife had an ischemic stroke at a posterior branch of the middle cerebral artery on the right side. She temporarily lost motor function on the left, and had homomonous hemiopia after initial recovery. The visual disturbance is mostly recovered but she has daily headaches.
She was initially on Dilantin 300mg at bedtime but is getting weaned down and is now taking Tegretol 200mg one and a half tablets twice daily and one Dilantin 100mg at bedtime. The Tegretol was gradually titrated up as the Dilantin was titrated down.

It's a double-edged Migraine sword. Researchers have identified a gene that may lessen the risk of Migraine with aura (MWA), but for women who have MWA and carry the MTHFR 677TT genotype, the risk of ischemic stroke is substantially increased. This news comes from study findings reported in the July 30, 2008, online issue of Neurology® , the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. This finding is based upon further analysis of data obtained in the Women's Health Study. In this study, 4,577 women had a history of Migraine. Of those women, 3.226 were actively experiencing Migraine and 39% of those had Migraine with aura (MWA). The women were also tested for a certain gene variant in the methyleneterahydrofolate reductase gene. Study participants were followed for a period of 12 years for the occurrence of cardiovascular disease, including heart attacks and ischemic stroke. The study found that women who had both the gene variant and migraine with a...
