    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    I happened to stumble on this tonight... trying to find other options for my migraines..it sounds like everyone here is going thru the same thing, with not a lot of relief anymore. I have suffered from migraines since I was a teenager, but they got worse after having neurosurgery when I was 22.
    Have tried depakote.. no relief and a few others.. am on topamax which has actually helped alot instead of having them constantly, its about 2 weeks a month now.. I already take a beta blocker, and now am a diabetic on top of it all, so that has just made them even worse..LOL
    My Dr.. is trying to get me to try the Botox shots, but I am scared to death of the side effects of that.. Has anyone out there tried them yet. or been on anything else that has worked?
