Hello again, everyone. It's been a couple of years since my last posts. In 2015, I was diagnosed with cancer, so that's been my life since then. I'm finally getting to the point where I feel about as normal as possible. Although I had no migraines at all during the most intensive chemotherapy, they came raging back stronger and more frequently than ever after I'd recovered from the chemo. Even using the Cefaly every day wasn't helping anymore; I've been having almost daily migraines for two or three months now. (Makes me so angry that I came through a year of intense chemo pretty much intact, only to now be fighting really painful migraines that paralyze half my face and make my eye close.) I went to a neurologist, who put me on Gabapentin, along with massive doses of vitamin B2 (riboflavin) and magnesium. It's been 11 days since I started the Gabapentin, and I've now gone two whole days without a migraine. Such a relief. Anyone taking 400 mg/day B2 and magnesium? Your experience?

I wish I could say that any vitamins caused a decrease in my migraines but none have and it seems like I've tried them all. As for magnesium I can't tolerate even the smallest dose available without extreme side effects for whatever reason.

Vitamins, minerals or supplements don't seem to help me either but oddly moving south seems to have helped at least a bit. We moved to South Carolina the end of October and I have had at least a few less migraines and they seem to be milder most of the time. I almost always get good effect from half an Imitrex and can go on with the rest of the day fairly normally. I have noticed that the barometer is often a good bit higher than it was back in NY and that may be part of what is happening.
