Hello. I'm sorry you're suffering from headaches. Unfortunately, some women do develop migraines as they enter menopause
, presumably due to falling estrogen and progesterone
levels. I presume you're at an age where menopause is more or less certain; if there's any doubt that you're really menopausal (and that some other condition isn't the cause of your lack of menstrual periods), your doctor can measure your follicle stimulating hormone
(FSH) level. This is a simple blood test
Sibelium is one of many medications doctors use to treat migraine headaches. You didn't mention if this medication helped when you first took it four years ago, but if it did, it's certainly worth taking again. If the Sibelium didn't help your headaches four years ago, you may want to talk to your doctor about other options. In some women with menopausal migraines, hormone therapy
is beneficial; progesterone alone is often sufficient.
I hope you feel better soon.
