I had a shit ton of migraines in August. Fortunately by taking a triptan (relpax seems to work better than others for me) and/or 800mg ibuprofen & 1000mg tylenol when I get a migraine, I can usually guarantee that I’m not in extraordinary pain. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean I’m well enough to work. Migraines make me very stupid.
I also took the time to break down my migraines by week and treatment. Unfortunately, the only thing I’ve tried in the last year that’s seemed to tamp down my migraines also made me sleep 10-17 hours a day, gain 10 pounds, and regularly caused half my body to go numb and tingly. Fun times. Honestly, I was so fuzzy and drowsy the entire time I was on amitriptylene that I’m not sure if it really reduced my migraines or if I just slept through or forgot to record many of them.
Fingers crossed for the new treatment I’m trying this month!
