I'm new to this forum and discovered it trying to research why I'm having DAILY headaches and/or migraines. It started on November 1, 2018 with a severe migraine that had me in tears for about 5 days and since then I will either have a severe headache, a migraine or at the very least a dull throb. Time spans without any pain at all are very rare and don't last very long.
*I turned 47 in October
*Advil/Alieve/Excedrin usually do not help at all
*RX of a Triptan for migraines did not help at all
*Acetaminophen + Codeine will take the edge off, but not completely (also, do not want to use too often due to all the news coverage of addiction issues)
*CT scan for tumor or brain bleeds came back normal
*Due to bloodwork results Dr prescribed a thyroid medication. Most recent bloodwork came back with normal thyroid results, am to continue the medication for the time being
My question is... if you have experienced headaches and migraines as a symptom of menopause, did you find a remedy to reduce or minimize this symptom?
I am so frustrated and am starting to feel like a shell of the person I was. I haven't been to pilates once since this started and have missed multiple of my daughter's orchestra and theater performances, missed book club and volunteer events. Also, I feel like my house is turning into an unorganized mess as I find just doing the bare minimum overwhelming and taxing.
