Re: menstrual migraines or epilepsy? so frustrated!

It all sounds like migraine to me, though I'm not an epilepsy or migraine specialist! I do get migraines (without aura) myself, and can relate to some of your symptoms. Epilepsy would never even come to mind for those symptoms in my book.

And even if you have sleep apnea, I wouldn't think it would cause such headaches, though I'm sure it wouldn't help matters.

But my vote is for migraine. What have you taken?

My gp referred me to a headache clinic in my town because I've had daily headaches with occasional migraine since I was 10 years old (I'm now 26). She also gave me some ideas for otc things I could try, including 400 mgs/day of vitamin b2 (riboflavin). Can't remember at the moment what else, but I'm sure you've probably tried just about everything with the suffering you're going through.

My pdoc put me on a beta-blocker for the headaches, but most of mine aren't migraines, so it wasn't very helpful.

And some people use the triptans prophylactically, or so I've heard.

Again, probably nothing you haven't heard before, tried or thought of yourself, but just my thoughts.

Take care.
