My neurologist suggested I take 200 mg a day of B2. I know it helps me with the intensity of my pain, but does nothing for the motion intolerance. I “think” it’s helping ramp down the number of severe vertigo attacks based on the fact since I started it about a month ago, I have used much less Meclizine and Valium for attacks, but that might just be I’m going through a better spell. Sometimes the attacks (meaning bad vertigo) are spread out a bit more, but I do have mild vertigo and all the motion issues 24/7.
I got some burning tingling numb nerve like pains, so she said to try to come off it to see if that was the culprit (it ended up being from Cipro we think…) and I made it 3 days off and my head pain was THROUGH THE ROOF. So back on the B2 I went.
I will never come off it again if I can help it. My pain levels even during a bad migraine are about a 5/6 instead of off the charts. And some days they are a 2/3 which for me is GREAT! She suspects I have been in the same migraine attack for years as it’s chronic so I’ll take anything I can get for help, and this definitely helps.
Another thing I found that is GREAT is that it reduces my computer eye strain somehow and the headaches related to that. I work on the computer hours a day, so this is very important to me.
