Question: Steroids and Migraines
(I do not own this photo).
I know steroid tapers and sometimes iv infusions are used to treat intractable migraines. I used to be the girl with daily migraibes lots of hospitalizations and no treatment options that were working. I am one of the lucky few that is a super responder to Aimovig and now live with 2-5 migraines per month and use Ubrelvy for an abortive. I am on other meds for other conditions. Recently I was on a prednisone taper for one of my other conditions and have had a low level "headache" keep building into a full migriane and back down again for almost a week now. I had the worst migriane I have had since started Aimovig 2 yrs ago last night. 3an it was gone. Now experiencing low level "headache" again. It seems like rebound butI haven't been over using ubrelvy because I only get 6 per month! Has anyone had steroids flare their migraines? (I recognize this is not a place to seek medical advice and will also be speaking to my neurologist. #Migraine #ChronicMigraines #Headache #CGRPantibodydrugs #aimovig #Ubrelvy #Steroids #Prednisone
