Hi Boys & Girls
Ever since Hain mentioned MDDS could be part of my issue, I have been trying to examine my case a little more closely, especially in view of the fact I havent had much luck with migraine preventatives thus far.
So if I have MAV the case for is:
I started Pizotifen back in 06 and over 4 months I was totally normal, albeit very fat.
It started out as some sort of VN type illness, and didnt begin after a long journey or boat ride. In fact I was at work when I first got ill.
I have had more headaches since having MAV than ever before in my life
I got car sick as a child and do still sufffer frm motion sickness
So if I have MDDS the case for is:
I feel better when in motion, driving a car or motorbike poses no issues. I drove all the way from the UK to Italy last year.
Verapamil, Depakote, Amitrptyline have all failed to do anything for me.
I didnt suffer migraines as a child. I dont have reactions to any food that Im aware off.
Pizotifen failed to work the 2nd time round, so did it work at all? Did my presumed MDDS clear up on its own back in 06? When my syptoms returned I was med free for 8 months and **travelling in a car ** MDDS is known to come and go, but so is MAV.
So its all a big mystery.
My process will be one of elimination. I will try every MAV med possible, and Piztofen again until I work out which one it is.
The bad news is that if its MDDS, there is no hope for me at all. Altleast MAV can be controlled.
Im currently on 25mg on Topamax - no chabge in symptoms yet, but it takes time.
I determined not to be robbed of my life by this. I will have a good job and keep it, marry a beuatiful woman, and have a great family. Its just a long path to finding it! But if I whinge along the wya thats me being british!
Let me know oyur thoughts or if you can relate to MDDS at all. Its a tough one to call.
