Hi all! I’m Ashley and I’m new here, although I have been lurking on the boards over the last few months or so. I’ve been dealing with VM/MAV for 2 years now, shortly after the birth of my second child.
I guess this post is about getting some reassurance! I finally found a combo of meds that works for me (37.5mg Venlafaxine XR and Botox), however over the last few days I’ve been having a flare up of symptoms and of course I am starting to panic thinking that I’m going back into the 24/7 cycle. I have been doing pretty good symptom-wise since I started this med combination, with a tiny little blip here and there, but mostly I felt normal. It’s the best I’ve felt in 2 years! Someone please tell me it’s possible to have longer flare-ups and then go back to where you were before the flare up? I know my anxiety over it all isn’t helping things!
