so i started back on it last week i think it was. and he prescribed me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sumatriptan</span> - i think it might be different name in usa. but he said it was to reduce blood vessle swelling / constriction. im not to happy about taking the tegretol unless i find some sort of medication that will work. i took the sumatriptan like he said - only use it when i feel the symptoms coming on i.e. flashes of light. /stars. blindness etc.
Avoid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>alcohol</span> and smoking. Regular breathing exercises and yoga also are recommended. Antianxiety medication like alprazolam also help. Adequate sleep is essential and so is adequate hydration. Goodluck.
Remind yourself that the fear, anxiety, sadness, moodiness, agitation are not real but the products of thoughts brought on by a brain out of balance chemically. Stay away from stimulants, caffeine and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>alcohol</span>. Excercise regularly and eat well and often, don't let your blood sugar levels drop, it makes things worse. Don't overeat and watch your simple sugar intake. It's literally mind over mind on this one folks.
I used to drink and party a lot, and now I suspect that a lot of those hangovers may have been migraines... Stopped partying a couple years ago (100% alcohol & drug-free since Jan 2012), but I've been having migraines regularly since summer/fall of 2012. I've always had allergies, and I'm pretty sure that some are sinus-triggered. Haven't noticed any other definite triggers, other than recently when I used a fat permanent marker with a strong odor.
Hi, Oxygen and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sumatriptan</span> have been demonstrated to be effective in the acute treatment of cluster headaches. Verapamil has been shown to be effective for prophylaxis. For cluster headache completely refractory to all treatments, surgical modalities and newer interventions such as the implantation of stereotactic electrodes may be useful. Patients should be encouraged to avoid possible triggers such as smoking or alcohol consumption, especially during the cluster period.
Most of the times it is food esp MSG please check the food labels of the food items that you consume.Avoid bright light, loud sounds, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>alcohol</span> and tobacco.Eat you meals on regular time, sleep at regular time, maintain proper hydration. Hope you feel better soon!
Thanks alot dr. santos! I actually dont drink <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>alcohol</span> and dont smoke (due to religious matters).I always have these types of migraine/cluster headaches around AF (periods). Not sure, why but I sleep like I normally do and just before having the headache I get restless and sleepless. Its even more difficult to treat it in early stages since I dont have any clue when the headache strikes....as people can if they follow an aura and headache.It just could be hormonal imbalance/stress.
finding triggers by keeping a food and activity log cheese, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>alcohol</span>, dyes and all kinds of things in your diet can cause migraines keeping a log can help you identify certain ones... Keep up with your dr for any tests he suggests but it sounds like migraine symptoms there are also great nausea meds...hope you feel better .... I have sympathy for you i know how it is....best wishes!!!
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>alcohol</span> is very hard on your internal organs and you need to give them time to recover. Long term use of Motrin is preventing this and it's very hard on the stomach and kidneys. Probably not good for a compromised liver either. My GP takes paying customers, and he charges a lot less than the emergency room at a public hospital. I realize that specialists are expensive, but you should be able to find a GP who will accept a reasonable amount of money and point you in the right direction.
Also if you smoke, you could try quitting to see if that helps. You could also go to the ER and ask for oxygen and an injection of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sumatriptan</span>. Don't get your hands on theses things yourself please please please... you could kill yourself with oxygen by mistake...
Try to avoid stress precipitating factors like light/ music/etc. Also try to get adequate sleep and abstain from smoking and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>alcohol</span>. Get an ENT and eye evaluation done to rule out any vision abnormality or ear infection that may cause or increase the headaches. Try some light exercises. Also discuss this with your physician when you go for your regular check up.
Thanks all for the thoughts down below, just got home from the ER again, this doc was very thorough, lots of blood work and scan of my belly. He said everything looks good, (thank god my liver count was good), he said it's just a nasty kidney infection and to stay off of my feet for a few days and to stop doing laundry out in 110 weather, lol, anyways he gave me a medication to help with the pain some it's called belladonna/phenobarb tabs.
The Excedrine has upset my stomach, even though I ate before I took it, and now I feel really spacy and have a strange pressure at the base of my skull into my neck. If I move a certain way I get a cold/hot feeling which I think is a pinched nerve, but not sure. Can you explain some of these symptoms to me so I better understand what I should do or what may be causing these migraines?
Your body is not “full of toxins.” When it is, your liver and kidneys are designed to handle those “toxins” and will do so far better than anything someone tries to sell you. 2. Diets only work when they restrict calories. 3. Your colon is fine and does not deserve to be regularly “cleansed.” Colonics have been around since the early 1900’s (maybe earlier) and the fact that they are still being used is only evidence of the gullibility of humans. 4.

Before I go any further I do want to say I do not do drugs or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>alcohol</span>. I take a low dose of xanex for nerves during the day and to help me sleep at night. The last couple of weeks These vibrations have spread to my vaginal and buttox area. I believe I may be hallucinating because I am also feeling the sensation of touch. I know it sounds crazy and maybe i am but it is true. It is not just happening when I am lying down anymore either.
I have been suffering from cluster headaches since September 5 and they have progressively gotten worse they come everyday about 8 times a day lasting only 30-50 minutes but absolutely excruciating. I recently went to the doctor and she prescribed me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sumatriptan</span> 5% nasal spray with one spray in the nasal side where the headaches are and with in 5 minutes they are gone..
I wake up with a sharp pain behind my left eye (sometimes to the right) everyday and treat it with Mexalt. I have tried Imitrex but that doesnt help much. I have been living with these kind of pain for over 6 years but the sharp pain behind the eye for the last 2 years. Is there any other med which is recommended? what can i do to get this pain to go away?
I have taken my prescription and over the counter meds and nothing seems to be working. So I have a few questions. Should I go to the doctor? Is there any meds you would suggest? And could this be something more than a migraine?
Hi Friends; Holy Mother of Tramadol FOG! Early morning and all morning has been ... the height of suckiness. It got better once I just cried. I felt better after that. I think now alot of the emotional stuff is hitting me. I'm not numbed by a drug and I have 5 years of emotional cellular storage to work thru I think. May I Trust Higher Power to restore me to sanity!? I got an email this morning from my Mother who says she's coming here in September? I can't even think that far in advance.
Everyone with CVS has a list of triggers, mine are lack of sleep, loud noise, spicy food, dairy, greasy food, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>alcohol</span>, pregnancy and many other things. I'm also on several medications now to control the CVS, and before those meds I was sick all the time, they have changed my life in a positive way, without those meds, I'd be living in a CVS hell.
That really freaked me out as to what it was doing to my body and my headaches were not getting any better. So I ended up going to the doc and he prescribed me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>sumatriptan</span>/Imitrex. Before I started taking the sumatriptan, I slowly started weaning myself off of the Excedrin Migraine. For 3-3 weeks I went from eight pills daily to only four. But this past Saturday I got a really bad migraine and was forced to try out the sumatriptan.
