About 2 years ago, at a work happy hour, I noticed spots in my vision. I wasn’t sure what was going on, but after calling my mom she said shes heard of that happening with migraines. My mom, aunt, and brother have suffered with migraines for years. Shortly after the splotchy vision started, the headache set in. This has now happened a handful of times in the past couple years. When I went to the neurologist they said it was my IUD, but when I followed up with my Gyno he explained that my IUD doesnt have estrogen in it and typically estrogen is what is tied to migraines. So, I left my IUD in. My migraines are 100% triggered by stress and anxiety. Has anyone ever taken a daily anti-anxiety medication that has helped to prevent migraines? In general, I lead a pretty healthy lifestyle. I exercise, eat healthy, and try not to stress too much but when I do I tend to be punished with a bad migraine that starts with splotchy vision. Imitrex helps, but I’m looking for prevention. Please share what has worked for you!
