Looking for some support today. I’m thinking about making some life changes and just want to get a feel for what other migraine and vestibular migraine sufferers have experienced.
Finally, I have had a little relief from the vestibular symptoms but my migraines just won’t let up. I’m feeling pretty defeated to the point that I’ll try any daily preventitive, lobotomy, whatever. I still have another week or 2 before my otolaryngologist will see me again, and would rather avoid meds if i can (but again, feeling desperate). He wanted me to try HYH diet for 2 months, almost there and really no improvement unfortunately.
The PT I’m working with emphasized how important it is for migrainers to have a regular daily schedule and that variations can throw us out of wack. I work a remote job right now so I think being on my own schedule thats extremely flexible is a blessing for when i dont feel well, but also perhaps may be bad for me. (Side note: her session of craniosacral therapy cured my migraine today, it was pretty wild). The screen time is killing me and for sure triggers migraines, even with a filter on my screen. Thankfully i have a clinical background, and am thinking about shifting back to direct patient care. I’ve been trying to avoid a job change because i know the stress of this will probably cause more migraines. But something is just not working for me. I’ve had migraines almost daily since October.
Has anyone here benefitted from a change in their life schedule/jobs and benefitted from it?
Also, I remember reading in Bucholz or Beh that oversleeping can cause migraines. I struggle with this because if i feel head or neck tension in the morning, i can’t help but want to sleep in (which is pretty much a regular occurrence).
Has anyone here had success strictly regulating their sleep schedule?
I’m sick of how this controls my life. My baby nephew was born a few weeks ago but I’m scared to travel into the mountain’s thinking I’ll get sick and be stuck there all weekend. All of my personal time is consumed by trying to get my migraunes to calm down or stop tjem from happening. I feel like I’m losing all of the things i enjoy. I just hate all of this. Like when will I be able to just go out and do things and not have togp home after an hour because i feel a prodrome? I’m just so frustrated and miss my old way of life.
