Thank you for posting your query.
I agree with your doctor that your symptoms could be due to migraine
. You need to be on preventive medications to reduce the severity and frequency of migraine headaches
. The good options for this include topiramate
, beta blockers and divalproex
We expect improvement within 3-4 weeks of starting treatment. However, if headaches continue to revue, then, an MRI
scan of the brain may be done.
I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
