I am a 34 years old, and i will be 35 next week. I was diagnosed with severe migraines when i was 14 years old. I have the visual disturbances ( bright zig zag lines), numbness in my face and hands, and confusion. It is really bad. I have dealt with this for so long, and never had a concrete treatment that worked. I was put on Inderal for years, in which it did help where i only had about one every 6-8 months. Then my doctor just yanked me off of them and i was left with nothing. As time has went on, they have gotten worse to the point i have almost had them every day this week. My new doctor put me on metroprolol 25mg ER..and this is day 2. I did have one this morning. Could it be that these have not gotten into my system yet..enough to help prevent..? This is really depressing me badly.
