It may: because the most common side effects of sumatriptan are: numbness, dizziness, chest/jaw/neck tightness, cold extremities, mood changes. You cannot use triptans more than a4 days per month. See your headache specialist for evaluation and medication adjustment. Triprtans are only abortive for migraine.
