Migraine has been like a dark cloud over my life for over 30 years it arises when you want to go out and returns when you have been anywhere. My job is always difficult some migraines I can work for short periods of time and then end up in bed. Sometimes I can't work at all and end up going off sick.I feel I am walking a tightrope sometimes and fear losing my job altogether. Like many stories on here tried combinations of meds seen a neurologist but nothing stops them it is all damage limitation. The GP recently stopped my propranalol because of side effects (it caused some episodes of breathlessness on exertion) for and out of the past month over half the days have been written off because of migraine. I tried tropamax the side effects made me feel half alive I am reluctant to try anti depressants because of side effects. I am so fed up of having to plan my life around migraines I am just recovering from yet another episode so feeling pretty low at the moment is there any hope of something that gives me a better quality of life?
