Is there a suggested medication for abdominal migraines?

I am a 34 year old female, with episodes of chronic migraine headaches which present themselves with an onset of what seems to be an epileptic seizure in my abdominals. The stomach involuntarily contracts for a period of 30 to 45 seconds, subsides for a few minutes, and then occurs again until vomiting results. The following day or two I have symptoms of a migraine headaches, vomiting for 12 ro 24 hours, followed by nausea, sensitivity to light and sound, and in one instance I had an episode where I could not speak or write. My doctor thinks I have abnormal migraines, however, the symptoms occur three days prior to my menses- and when I am under a great deal of stress. I have been experiencing these abdominal migraines or abdominal epileptic seizures- which ever they are called- for a period of 23 years approximately every cycle. They get worse if I eat dairy, yellow cheese, meat, wheat, sugar, onions, and too much chocolate, or smell chemicals, diesel fuel, or bleach. I have received an endoscopy which came back normal, I was tested for Celiacs disease, and that came back normal. I feel frustrated because I cannot get a definitive answer about this condition. I just want an answer about this condition which with my current insurance, I cannot get the tests necessary to diagnose whatever I have. I would be happy to volunteer for a medical study for Abdominal Epilepsy or Migraines if it could lead to a diagnosis. I think this could help me to lead a more normal life, and possibly treatment for this condition. What is your advice for me, considering this has effected every aspect of my life, family, career and health.

Hello,

If one comes to me with such complaints as yours I suggest to take the following Ayurvedic medicines.

1. Arogyavardini Rasa 1 tablet with warm water three times a day before food.

2. Kamadugha Rasa with Mukta (Preferably of Shree Doothpapeshwar Limited) 1 tablet with warm water three times a day before food.

3. Drakshadi Kashayam 3tsp (15ml) with 3tsp (15ml) of water three times a day after food.

4. Shirashula vajrari Rasa 1 tablet with Drakshadi Kashaya (Item no.3) three times after food.

I would also like to suggest for a considerable dietary regimen as below:

1. Avoid use of caffeine, Bakery, Fermented, oil fried and cocoa products.

2. Increase intake of fruits especially Orange, grapes, fully ripe banana and Musambi.

3. Preferably pure vegetarian diet with lots of fibres and those belonging to cucurbitaceae like ash gourd, bitter gourd, ridged gourd, etc.

I suggest it for a period of one month and then revive the condition.

Now as this is a prescription Ayurvedic medicine and requires regular monitoring I suggest you to take the advice of a local Ayurvedic Physician for proper management.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Mahesh T S, Ayurveda Specialist

Hi usually suffered uncontrolled vomiting that last up to more than 10 hrs. IMaybe not feeling dizzy or whatsoever it s just my stomach. My case since when I was 10 yrs old now I m 37. I undergo some medical check up like head x-Ray, EENT, full abdomen ultrasound, helicobactor test, blood test and EEG. After consulting to a neurologist she gave me some medication(Tegretol) where she called my illness abdominal epilepsy. I take the medicine for a year and it helps. I rarely suffer uncontrolled vomiting for up to 3 years. I know some foods that triggers my stomach instantly that cause vomiting are too much chocolate, Apple cider/pure vinegar. I don t have any allergies from any kind of food but taking too much of those that I mentioned cause my tummy upset. Last week I suffered again when I drink a cup of tea with lemon without eating my dinner. Vomitting for almost 10 hours. I talk to another doctor and he said its abdominal migraine. My other doctor said its a lifetime illness. Some said its a very rare condition. Do you have any suggestions about my case? Thank you.

Recently diagnosed with abdominal migranes. Happens 2 to 3 times per month and always at night. 5 to 7 hours of severe diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. Extremely painful cramps like labor contractions. I end up out of commission for 2 to 3 days after. Dehydrated and every muscle in my body aches. I am told only amitriptilline (sp) can possible help.

I have extremely horrifying migraine, with vomiting, and abdominal migraines too. The Butabital w/cod is the only pill I have found that helps my migraines. I also have CVS (Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome) that come with migraines and I have to be hospitalized for about 3/5 days. I cannot afford my new co-pay of 98.00 for a months supply. Can you help me. Also I am disabled and cannot work.How can I get my medicine cheaper than 95.00
