Right now my main concern is about my Transformed Migraines and my sleep issues. I also have epilepsy (complex partial seizures/ the epileptic activity is located in my left temp. lobe.) I take Lyrica for both my epilepsy and migraines. I also take Maxalt for more severe Migraines.
I have cardiac arrhythmias and a heart murmur. (Which I take a beta blocker, bystolic ). I have other mild cardiac anomalies such as small aortas and false tendons around my left ventricle. I have had a cardiac ablation to correct one of the arrhythmias.
I have asthma (take advair and xopenex), Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and severe joint hypermobility with the early onset of arthritis, kidney stones and chronic Urinary Track Infections.(I'm 27 years of age.)
However, back to the issue of my Transformed migraines, I find that I have difficulty falling asleep. When I do sleep it's a very light sleep. I am often awaken by headaches or mild dream like (hallucination)seizures. On the other hand after several nights like this I will become so tired that sleep comes immediately and I sleep deeply. The conflict with a good decent sleep is that when I wake up I wake up to a full blown-- could cry from the pain-- migraine. What can I do to achieve better sleep and less migraines?And is it possible that all my ailments are somehow related??
