I've been suffering from what doctors now believe to be migraine related vertigo for about a year now. The vertigo has drastically improved, but the headaches and migraines are causing me lots of problems. Doctors put me on propanolol for headaches nearly 3 weeks ago and if anything I think this has made my problems worse. Headaches are way more frequent to the point I'm getting them every single day now, and I've had trouble sleeping full nights since starting them due to sleep disturbances which is making me incredibly tired all day. I've had to take Nurofen almost every day since starting on the propanolol, it's gotten to the point where it's only making very small differences and I believe it's making my headaches worse due to over use. I'm aware of how bad it can be to take them so frequently so have tried not to take them the last few days, but I'm at my witts end with it all! Every day I'm getting headaches of different severity, it makes me terribly sensitive to light and it's impacting my day to day life drastically. I have a doctor's appointment in two days and I'm posting here mostly for advice. Should the propanolol of started working now and is it likely to get better? Are there prescription painkillers doctors can give for these things that are better than taking over the counter stuff? I'm so tired of these headaches and really need advice.
