yep, but the other is actually nortriptylene, not amitrtriptylene. My daughter is on ami. I can’t keep her and my migraine drugs straight. How sad is that? Maybe we should move out of our house - I wonder if there is something in the walls… ?
That said, Dr. Beh helped me go from miserable to fully functioning again - at work, coaching my kids’ teams, exercising, doing everything I want to do. Can’t say enough good things. It was a process. First visit I got a lot better, but it took 3-4 visits and incremental change to go from awful and a major loss of function and missing out on life to being probably 95-98% of what I was before this thing hit.
Yep. Hers are abdominal migraines. Mine are vestibular. Neither of us has the good old fashioned headache migraine. Pretty weird. I never had a problem until after I turned 40. She started having problems at age 10.
Pretty typical from all I’ve read not to mention my own experience. I had abdominal migraines as a young girl though they were called sick headaches in those days then they stopped completely from menarche until menopause only to return as Vestibular Migraine, no headaches. It’s a recognised pattern.
Thanks for posting. Not going to have time to watch the whole thing but for those that have… I’m super curious what he says about the typical timeline for recovery? Or maybe he doesn’t address this. I’ve been reading his book and though it’s not perfect I would recommend it.
I don’t remember him saying anything about a timeline in the book. I think it’s extremely variable. Maybe some get lucky, get an accurate diagnosis on the first try and manage to get the right med for them the first try. I’d say that timeframe is maybe six months. The average seems to be 2-3 years. For some of us it’s decades.
