Homeopathy and Health Forum
Recently I started getting headaches suspected to be migraineI used to get a headaches a few years back, they were daily headaches. I went to a Neuro and he couldn't find anything wrong. He did 1 CT scan, non contrast. Well I was put on a Blood Pressure medicine since I have hyperthyroid and my heart rate and BP was going up. I was weaned off of it 6 months later since I am stable and the pill was making me dizzy. Well it has been 1 month of hell since then. I went through depression some days, and panic most days. Now I wake up feeling like there is a weight sitting on my head. Pressure constantly. The top of my neck hurts sooo bad. I feel like there is a rubber band around the middle of my head. I can feel my heart beat in my head, and when I stand it gets soooo bad. Pulsating and hurting. I have this weird feeling like I am off balance....Not dizzy, just not clear headed almost like medicine head without the medicine 24/7. This is making me extremely worried. I went to the Hospital, I have no insurance and they gave me a CT scan, non contrast and said it was negative and that I just have anxiety. Okay, well I am getting the anxiety from feeling this way all the time!!! Can a migraine headache be all the time? I mean the pain goes away at times, but I feel the pressure still and the weird visual feeling. Last night it was so bad when I was driving home, that for a second I had no clue where I was when I was driving. Then it just all came back to me. Also, lights bother me and noises. I am waiting for insurance to kick in, but has yet to come :( Oh also, I am a 24 y/o female, who up until now was very active with sports and gym 4 nights a week.

rishimba on 2007-02-14It is possible to have migraine all the time but it is also possible for anxiety to affect your migraine so it feels like it is all the time, what we need to do here is to find the difference! Recording all of this can be quite a task but it will be evidence that will help a decent Neuro figure out what is going on! You need to record the off balance sensations and any other symptom too. Recently I got a product of Migravent. You may find further detail at their site. I think itís migravent dot com. You can consult your doctor before taking caz you are going through treatment. Get well soon.
