Brenda, unfortunately, the answer is, "Yes." The hormonal changes and fluctuations of menopause can make Migraines worse, better, or make no difference at all.
Hormone replacement therapy is the same way. Sometimes, it can make things better, but for some women, it makes things worse or makes no difference. There's no way to predict the effects of HRT either, but it's worth discussing with your doctor. If you see a different doctor for your Migraines, ask your doctors to work together on this one.
Hi Brenda. My migraines were horrible before menopause, almost every month was agony. But since I hit menopause, the migraines only come once or twice a year. They are much more intense when they hit, but having so few is worth it. Maybe you're having a much faster, more hormone driven menopause than I did, since hormones seem to have so much to do with migraines.
I hope someone more knowledgeable than I can help you more than I can. Good luck, Brenda.
