too many docs

Hey ladies,
I guess Im back to the doc again. This time Im going to my family doc but one of his co-workers. yugg

Remember I was telling you all about having sooo many migraines since my I was awakened by a bad migrain. Usually they dont wake me up.
Im tired of having so many.
Also, I had to pee really bad and had cramps because of that. Then I had to pee again at 7:30. I finally got up at 9:30. My kids let me sleep in.
Usually, I dont have to get up so much to pee. Really a pain in the butt.:cry:

back from too many docs

Hi everyone,
I just got home from my family doc. Remember because of so many migraines postop?
Well, thedoc( a lady not my own-had hyst 2 years ago) asked me if I kept my ovaries and I said yes but I was only in with her 15 minutes and I went from hot to cold 4 times,even sweating my butt off. lol
She told me my migraines might be because my hormones are all over the place. They drew blood to check the hormone level and will send it to my OB to decides what to do. Might temp need hrt.

She did give me a shot of tordol and a med called Topamax. The drug was used for seizures but was just approved for migraines. I take it as a preventive and still take imetrex as needed. I hope it helps.

Before I forget the tordal made me feel weird.

Been there. They have tenatively decided that my migraines are stress triggered. I'm on Avert, Lexapro, and have Xanax for those (I want to hurt someone) moments. The lexapro and xanax have really made a difference. In the last 3 weeks I have only had the beginnings of 1 headache. Down from every other day.

I tried taking Topamax to try to prevent migraines, but I did not like the side effects. (Also did not like the high price !) Now, I am taking Nadolol. It is an older, well-established drug. I think the primary purpose might be for high blood pressure, but it is also used as a migraine preventative. I take a very small dose (pill) every evening. I think it helps to prevent some migraines and is quite low in cost. (With insurance, it's about $1.25 per month.) Also, for me, it does not seem to be causing any side effects. Just a suggestion.

Also, I've heard that it isn't so much the hormone levels that cause migraines, but the fluctuation of hormone levels that is the problem. Hopefully when yours "settle down" things will get better. Take care.

Maybe that is what the doc meant the fluctuations not the actual hormones themselves.

To my other sister, what kind of side effects did have so I might know what to look for or hope not to have.

I have had the same problem with rollercoaster emotions, cool, hot, and really bad headaces. I posted earlier and Linda gave me a link to a book "Screaming to be heard" where it has a whole chapter Migraines and Hormonal headaces. It talks about estrogen and Progesterone effects on headaches. I'm also reading a book "the testosterone syndrome" that has a whole chapter about the benifets of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. It states that Estrogen as a link to brain fog, alzheimer's disease and skin tone etc.. things my doctor never told me. I was told my problems are only in my head.

Tomorrow I'm seeing a NP that does compounding drugs, according to the only componding pharmacitsts in town.

I think the Torodol is like Ibuprofin but stronger. Make sure you keep food in your stomach. I hope you get some answers soon!!!

good luck,
