My name is Adam and I have just been recently diagnosed with VM from my Nuerologist. I have been struggling with this for almost 3 months. It is nice to have a plan to move forward with. I didnt even know about VM until I signed up on this site, so thank all of you for sharing your stories.
I have adopted the migriane free diet, and the Dr. Has me on 25mg of Topomax and will work me up to 100mg within a month. I also exercise 5 times a week to help keep up my fitness and give my body a better chance of beating this. I have figured pit alot of my triggers, but I seem to always feel dizzy after a shower. It is not a full blown VM, but it bothers me for a good hour or so. I was curious if anyone else had any information on this, or has personally experienced the same thing.
Also, if you are following the migraine free diet, do you have to wipe out all products associated with the food? Fore example, it says no coconut, but what about coconut milk or coconut palm sugar? Same question with almonds.
Any advice would be helpful, thanks!
