For the past year I have been seeing a neurologist for migraines. Our insurance company wanted to investigate the extent of my monthly medication use of Maxalt (for migraines).
In the past 4+ years I have endured between 10 - 19 migraines per month (plus the occasional headache). I have kept dairies and calendars faithly. I was diagnosed with bipolar after a long stay at a mental health facility after repeated sucide attempts at that time as well.
The medications I take daily are: Lithium, Wellbrutin, Upival, and for a hernia Pantoloc. My neurologist just gave me Viprimal to add to the daily medications.
I get horrible nausea with the onset of a migraine and am sensitive to light all the time. Overcast days are my best days ... I do not like the light at all. I use Maxalt when I get a migraine and normally within two hours I am feeling better, although this could last only for a few hours or a day and wham ... another migraine.
I recently had a CT scan which resulted in the discovery of a bone lesion on the left parietal in a venous lake of 9mm. I was sent for more tests and now the neurologist is saying not to worry about the lesion but I had a sinus problem on the right side the day I went for the bone scan. All of my migraines are on the left side (???) The Viprimal as I understand is a preventive medication for use in cluster headaches and that would affects the sinuses, however, I normally don't get sinus pain. Eye pain yes, but not sinus.
So, here I am, another year gone by, and no relief from these migraines. Any suggestions?
