Migraine... give me another answer please
I am a 27 yr old female. Began having migraines 8 years ago. Tried everything accupunture, massage, diet, hormonal altering drugs, Frova, Imitrex, Maxalt, fioricet, tramadol, midrin, amerge, and topomax, along with the typical OTC meds.
After several self studies and visits to the doc, I changed my diet, avoid MSG, hydrolized protiens, nitrates etc. This helped with some.
Topomax has decreased the frequency that I get over the month, however, It makes me anxious and depressed. And causes the migraines to be more severe and longer lasting.
Frova was supposed to supress my hormonal migraines, but thus far, no luck.
Flexiril decreased the muscular tension migraines, but the doc pulled me off of it.
Now I get about 2-3 sets of migraines a month each one lasts for 2 -4 days.
I have exhausted all resources. I have been the the Keeler center (migraine specialist center).
Has anyone tried first rib removal?
