I have suffered from migraines accompanied by horrendous earaches for over 30 years. They do get much worse due to my food sensitivities (cow and goat dairy/gluten/wheat/grapes/alcohol). I am vegetarian so as you can imagine I have to have eyes in the back of my head as far as buying food and eating out goes. Any mistake results in days of awful pain.
Anyway, my question is about 4 things....
- Do any of you get earache with migraines and are they caused by food sensitivities/intolerances? Have accompanying earaches been explained to you? No one has a clue about mine! Ears checked, nothing wrong.
- My neurologist recommends Amitryptaline, should I take it? I have concerns about bone density/calcium loss etc and other side effects.
- Has your GP recommended riboflavin for migraine, this is of particular interest for me as my GP says its a load of rubbish, it cannot help with migraines and I would just be peeing it out. Has your GP recommended or prescribed it for you?
- Butterbur...any of you had any success with it?
Please feel free to just answer any bits you can.
thanks so much
