I am 43 and have suffered migraine with aura for several years. Iv recently read that low oestrogen can be a cause but can also be a risk of ovarian and breast cancer . Yet in another article migraine suffers are believed to be less at risk of breast cancer. Confused? I am!

doctor1 MD

Hi
Its still not established whether low estrogen really causes migraine. However you may stop worrying about the low estrogen because a history of migraine is a contraindication for the prescription of the same. You may continue with non hormone drugs for prophylaxis of migraine. hope that...

Hi,

The nightmares may be related to major depressive disorder and if so, treatment of depression can provide relief in nightmares as well. In my opinion, you should discuss the issue of nightmares with the psychiatrist who is treating your son and not think of involving a new specialist without...

swelling, hands & feet I have Fibromyalgia, & arthritis, but was hospitalized in April w/elevated LFT s (@ last testing it was @ 207 ) & a WBC of .13, just under a 1, which is back to normal & they figured out that what caused that was the Topamax I was on for Migraine preventative. They think the elevated LFT s is due to too much Acetaminophen in Vicoden ES & Fiorcet w/codeine & changed my pain med to something w/o Acetaminophen. I m scheduled to have additional blood drawn ordered by a Gastroenterologist. That said, my new symptoms are starting out with right hand swelling stiffness and pain then left hand swelling stiffness and pain and now feet as well. This morning my left hand was so swollen the skin was taught & shiny. Usually my right hand is the 1 that is swollen and especially around the knuckle of my pointer finger but is the closest to the hand part. All of that said, what could possibly be causing this?
