Nootropics for migraine prevention and neuropathic pain?
Doctor has prescribed me Amitriptyline but I'd rather avoid it if possible.
Am currently experiencing aura migraines twice a week, and have an injured facial nerve muscle (can't describe the pain, it's the worst thing I've ever experienced) as a result.
Its tedious, but a diary will really help you analyse what areas you need to improve. Ensure your diet is as 'healthy' as possible and try to get some good sources of B-vitamins. Do you stuggle with eating due to your anxiety?
I've said it quite a few times, but if you can afford to see a professional once a month that'd help with the anxiety which can hopefully then help somewhat alleviate your depression.
When I was losing weight due to anxiety i'd meditate for 10 mins before eating to calm myself down and it helped me enjoy the food and keep it down.
I'm a PT so if you want any dietary advise feel free to message me.
ps. so there is no confusion, by going back i mean after not being prescribed klonopin for close to ten years (ie., they couldnt have been a symptom of withdrawal).
But if you're looking for long term, Mema is it. I've been on break from Memantine almost 4 weeks now and I already have my cluster headaches again from looking through a scope all day.
I'm going to start another Mema cycle Monday.
If you're over simulating you're brain from too many noots causing jaw tension which in turn will cause migraines then magnesium can help to prevent it.
What if your vertebrae are compressed and restricting blood flow or pinching a nerve? Traction on your neck may relieve your symptoms (someone pulling on your head to decompress your spine)
Also caffeine can kick a headache, unless you're already taking caffeine then I might not suggest taking any more as it would probably only exacerbate the problem, depends on how much caffeine your already consuming.
Just a few suggestions anyway. Supplementation appropriate to the situation you know
