Migraine Question of the Week, 3/10/11
Our readers ask some great questions about Migraine disease and other headache disorders here on MyMigraineConnection. Nancy and I both answer questions in our community question and answer section. Dr. Krusz and I answer other questions in our Ask the Clinician column.
Some of the questions apply to many of our readers, and are great topics for discussion. So, every week, I'll bing you our Question of the Week. I hope you'll take a few minutes to look at these questions and the answers, then join us in discussion. One of the best things about online communities is the opportunity to share information and experiences.
This week's Question of the Week:
No hope left?
I am 48 now been told by the third nurologist that they have tried everything last resort was Nardil. I was to scared to try that one. I was on 9 pills some 4 times a day some 2 times a day. I was a zombie and eventually every pill stopped working. I am almost off all the meds except my anti deprresent which I tried to go off and almost ended my life. When you have seen 3 nurologist and have no hope of any treatment left should I try a migraine clinic. I live in canada and we have one in Toronto Ont. I was taking 4 zomig a day for 4 years to get through work. Days off were spent in bed with sleeping pills. Now they forced me to retire. I am full of rage and get migraine daily. Please no more drugs except an anti deppresent that does not cause weight gain and suggestions of what to do now? Please help if you can. Thank you Jodie.
