Has anyone ever heard of Nexium giving people headaches? I take it for my stomach and I’ve read online that a possible side effect are headaches. Has anyone had these? What kind of headache is it? I’ve been considering changing medication for the GURD or even trying Aloe Vera juice (I’ve heard it works) to help out with not needing a daily med.
On the 4th I had headache hangover; you know that four-day bender feeling you get when you go to sleep with an ice pick in your head? I had that Wednesday morning and I ended going into work late. Tolerating the day was difficult. I even ended the evening with another headache. Fun stuff!
I talked to another person who is taking Topamax. She isn’t tolerating it well. The tingling extremities are extremely bothersome for her and she is getting aphasia like I was. I was on 200mg/day and I think she’s only at 50mg/day. From what I read 200mg is a high dose for migraine treatment and is more equated to seizure treatment. We started at 25mg which helped for a month or more, then 50, 100, 150 and then 200. 200 seemed to do the trick for almost a year. I stopped taking it because of the side effects including it triggering a form of tunnel vision that I’ve had since I was very little. That was the most irritating side effect.
The sun is out today for a little bit; hopefully that will help my mood out! I don’t mind cloud cover but I need some reminder we don’t have cold dead hearts. 🙂 🙂
