Neurologist believes Fin triggered Vestibular Migraines. I have been experiencing head/ear pressure, vision issues (similar to eye misalignment symptoms), and general wooziness since stopping Fin 4 months ago. All symptoms of VM. I also have Cervicogenic Headaches which may have been caused by the stress/anxiety of the onset of the migraines. This is like a tension headache starting in the neck/back of head. Could also be Occipital Neuralgia.
Neuro says hormone changes can trigger migraines for people with pre-dispositions. While I’ve never had anything like this before, it is possible. Frightening that this drug can do this-- and I’m still not totally convinced about this diagnosis but it lines up on paper. She suggested a diet change (google migraine diet), acupuncture, massage, and vestibular therapies. She resisted putting me on drugs to treat for now.
Wanted to post here after some time to see if others share my symptoms/have any recommendations for treatment/relief. I also wanted to put down Vestibular Migraine here because it describes many symptoms people have and may bring some clarity.
Please keep things positive here. I have since learned that stress exacerbates symptoms.
