Thank you! I will definitely message him and browse around for his comments. There are so many pages to that thread its taking me a while to get all that information down.
As far as my headaches go, I have them literally 24/7 in varying intensities, sometimes its a full on migraine that lasts for a month or more, other times its pretty mild and I feel like a somewhat normal person. I did 3 rounds of accutane and each time my migraines got a little bit worse, I don't know why I never made the connection between the two at the time. I guess probably because the migraines got worse each time about a year after I took the accutane, and because I was between the ages of 15-19, I was just a stupid kid.
I had nerve decompression surgery about 2 1/2 months ago to try and fix the migraines, I'm still in recovery and still don't know whether the surgery worked or not, but I feel like theres something more to it, and I always come back to accutane and how it damaged my system. Right now my pain is all in my forehead and cheeks (sinuses). My doctor recently put me on antibiotics because she thought I had a sinus infection, but that did absolutely nothing.
My diet is pretty good, I think, I've been gluten free for about 3 years, I eat as little dairy as possible and have cut out tons of, "migraine triggers," such as onions, avacados, anything with MSG, nuts, chocolate, processed meats, artificial flavorings/sweeters etc...
I take a ton of vitamins, and was trying to figure out which ones worked best when reading that thread, but there were so many suggestions and conflicting ideas that I'm not sure which vitamins to take and which to avoid. So if you have any advice on that, that would be great.
I also recently switched to only using all natural makeup/soaps/lotions to avoid parabens because of the effect accutane has had on my hormones. I was taking prescription progesterones, but switched to bioidential progesterone cream after reading about the scary side effects of the prescription. It helps with the headaches around my periods when my hormones fluctuate, but I still have a constant headache and I know it has to be from accutane.
Has anything worked for you?
