    One month history?? don't think you mis-read Didgens, it's confusing... I had pituitary MRI 4 Jan, I thought it was a waste of everyone's time, well I hope it was... Good Neuro eh,ruling everything out

    Cortical spreading depression

    A great piece to read, thanks. The day they put something effective out there can't come soon enough. I knew that there is a risk of clots/stroke with migraine suffers, my doc won't allow me to have the contraceptive pill for this reason, so it was interesting to read/confirm that they think migraines may cause small clots to form...

    verapamil/imitrex side effects

    Hi Bejeeber, Thanks for the reply and advice They're already a lowish dose I believe...'each pre-filled 0.5ml cartridge syringe contains 6 mg sumitriptan' My nasal sprays are 20mg. I have seen the video and info on reducing the dose, I'll look at taking them down to 2mg?? Thanks again
  14. Hi folks Was prescribed Verapamil byNeuro,it did help, but came off it after about a week due to the 'common' side effects, i won't go into too much info, you all know how they 'bung' you up and mess with your guts! Anyway, the old brain started being attacked again about 2 weeks after stopping the Verapamil, so I guess i'll be giving it a go again...maybe I'll take some syrup of figs Any tips?? I have another question too...when any of you guys have your injection, what side effects do you get?? For about 10 minutes my brain and the back of my nose feel like they are on fire, it's intense and really horrible. What a relief when it goes and takes the pain with it!! I never got this with the nasal spray - which never seemed to work anyway...Just wondered if it was usual, I must say though, I don't mind as it takes away the pain Lv n big hugs to u all
