"Migraine as an Early Symptom in MS"

Brass and Ivory: Life with MS & RA: Migraine as an Early Symptom in MS

I got my first migraines at about the age of nine and they got so bad at 6th form (age 17-18) that I had to start wearing glasses to read.Then, I forget what specialism he was but a specialist I was referred to by my MS Neurologist at the time said that much of my vertigo was vestibular migraines and started me taking propranolol to counteract that.

I did not have a migraine at all for a few years but have been getting visual migraines steadily more frequently recently (see natdaylog for the evidence - I have just woken up from sleeping up yet another one).

I think I need to see a GP and get re-referred to a neuro and/or whatever that that specialist was.

Sadly my MS Neurologist and many other medical records are at Chichester hospital, my neuro is no longer involved in an MS clinic there (they have stopped holding one there at all from what she said) and Chichester is not as convenient for us since we moved to Horsham in 2008.

Complications, phone calls and stress ensue!
