I’m new to the group as I was diagnosed only a year and a bit ago.
I was wondering if any of you have discovered that the migraines are linked to your hormones.
After 6 months that my 3rd baby was born I started having the first symptoms-dizzy, head spins, headaches , nausea, extreme motion sickness, tintinnus , out of body sensation and struggling to put sentences together.
Because of my age 32 and the fact that I was breastfeeding the neurologist gave me only some excersises and vitamins to try to improve the situation.
I got a bit better and then with the insertion of the contraceptive Implanon a few weeks later all symptoms went away.
Unfortunately the Implanon was giving me other side effects so I had to remove it after 10 months.
within a few weeks the symptoms came back, adding fatigue and shivers.
Now I’m sure the migraines are hormones driven and I would like to try Mirena as a contraceptive.
Did any of you notice an improvement in the migraines or made them worse, the same?
My doctor has a bit of a let’s try approach but with 3 little kids to look after full time I don’t have time to waste. Need to feel better ASAP
