I have Been on this fantastic site before regarding my debilitating migraines and Topiramate.
I was put on Topiramate 18 months ago by my neurologist to help with my migraines that I was getting about 4 times a week , the feeling of exhaustion was really hard to deal with day to day and being a single parent to 3 children .
Topiramate, I found extremely difficult to adapt to, and just couldn't handle a dose of more than 25 NHS per day , over that I would feel like death literally!
I have had cat scans , but in the summer I started to have pains in my neck and 2 frozen shoulders . I insisted that I had an MRI and this picked up that I have got a tumour on the Pituitary Gland .
I was immediately taken off the Topiramate.
It's so far been 2 weeks since I have taken it , each day gets better and better .
Naturally I am very concerned about my out come with having to most probably have surgery
But , the relief of feeling so much better without taking this dreadful drug will enable me to deal with anything!
If you are having persistent really bad headaches insist you have an MRI to rule out any other reason for them .
