Did your MAV start as you reached perimenopause or menopause itself? I’ve had migraines all my life but as soon as I hit 46 last October I got slammed with dizziness, tinnitus and horrible anxiety that seemed to coincide with my migraines. Thankfully the dizziness seems controlled now but the anxiety not so much. I’m trying everything from yoga, meditation and massage therapy to combat it but it’s still daily. Doctor prescribed .5mg of Klonopin twice daily but the stuff makes me SO sleepy! I only take 1/2 of the .5 at bedtime. Otherwise I’m on 20mg of nori as migraine preventative. I was on Cymbalta but stopped it due to the side effecst.
Anyway, back to my original question. Did any of you experience this big of a change in your migraine symptoms as you reached the perimenopause/menopause state?
