Re: Hormones, menopause and migraines

Thank you for the replies.

I continue to have migraines and have just experienced my first cluster headache that lasted 3 days. I really didn't think that any headache was worse than a migraine until this. I'm really hoping that my hormones get situated and that my headaches go away.

What dose of estradiol are you on? Have you spoken with your Dr. about the headaches?

I'm currently taking 2 tiny pills .5 mg. No, I haven't talked to my doctor about them yet. I was trying to see if they would stop coming.

Re: Hormones, menopause and migraines

It could be that your dose isn't high enough yet. Are you taking both pills at the same time? You might consider trying to take an additional pill in the middle part of the day to see if that eases the migraine. When does your migraine hit in relation to time of dosing? Something that seemed amazing to me was the day I had forgotten to take one of my doses and I only remembered when I started to feel the migraine coming on. I quickly took the dose and kept my fingers crossed. The migraine that was just getting wound up slowly downgraded to a mild headache and within about 2 hours was completely gone. Spacing the doses at least 6 hours apart and getting my dose up (now to 2mg) has really helped. I'm not sure if any of this would help you or not, it certainly couldn't hurt to try it though. You sound absolutely miserable.

Re: Hormones, menopause and migraines

Thank you very much for your advice. I will pay attention to when I take my pills and when the headaches occur and see if I can get them figured out.

Thanks again. I really appreciate it
