I have very frequent migraine attacks & I have sinus headaches. What is wrong with me ?

I have body aches- back, arms and legs and am sleepy all day every day. I have complicated migraines as a result of which I have very frequent migraine attacks. So, I am currently on a treatment of 20mg of anti-depressant drug once a day every day for the past 3 weeks. Also, I have sinus headaches. I generally don t sleep very well at night and even though occasionally I feel like I have slept well in the morning, I still feel sleepy. Ever since I started the treatment for migraines, I wake up with bad dreams and strange dreams in the middle of the night and find it hard to go back to sleep. Since I don t sleep well, although I want to exercise everyday, I feel tired and do not feel the urge to do so. What is wrong with me?

Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum
You are feeling sleepy and fatigued because of the anti -depressant drugs. You may want to change your medication, espcially if the headache's are not reducing and new symptoms are coming up.
You can try homoeopathy safely for migraine, sinusitis and even for sleep disturbances.

Hi, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!
If you have frequent migraine attacks, you require prophylactic medicines so you donot suffer the agony of pain. There are many prophylactics like beta-blockers (eg. propranolol), Divalproex, gabapentin, tricyclic antidepressants, SSRIs to name a few. So if you feel problem with one drug, there are a numbers of options to help. Why donot you consult a Neurologist for change in medicine. You will soon be alright.
Good luck.
