Migraine update

Saw the (lovely in every possible way) neurologist today.I had stopped taking the vitamin B2 and Co-enzyme Q10 supplement because...well, because the beta blocker was working so well for the first three weeks that I was not motivated to take it. Having discussed the matter at length I will be taking it religiously for the next six weeks. I can increase the current beta blocker if need be, but I am not going to do that just now because I don't want my ability to use the crosstrainer affected.

I am also going to contact a specialist who is running a programme relating to hole in the heart and migraines. It is just possible that I have this defect. It is also important to know whether or not the hole is there because a very small hole can increase the chance of small emboli being thrown off and lodging in the brain. Hmm. Nice.

  1. We had friends from the U.S. who lived in Holland briefly for work purposes, and we were very impressed with the amount of research going on into things like that -- things that were connected by symptoms and what look like coincidence. Here's hoping you can get in on some kind of a test case so that you can continue to have your case looked into.
