It is not likely the water itself is causing the migraine. But more likely a change in body temperature or perfusion of your brain. When you drink water after exercise you might get a different migraine. It might cause nausea. ...Read more

Water, water: In eating healthy and exercising you might have lost enough fluid to both make the loss quite high and the bowels constricted. Be careful to drink ~1/2 gal/day.

Had tunnel vision last Thursday along with a dream state. Now everything is tilting to the left with naseau.  Migraine induced stroke 2012. Am I anoth?

Only way to find out: is to get scanned. A stroke is a medical emergency. Call your doctor. If he/she doesn't think you need to go to an ER, go anyway. Migrainous strokes are usually quite small but still not to be taken lightly. A CT is likely inadequate: for migrainous strokes, MRI is the test of choice. I hate unnecessary testing, so if I'M telling you to get scanned, you know I'm concerned. ...Read more

Can periactin (cyproheptadine hydrochloride) (cyproheptadine) be useful in relieving serotonin induced migraine caused by an ssri? Periactin (cyproheptadine hydrochloride) has antiserotonin affinity. Head hurts..

Might be useful: Although Cyproheptadine is nominally an anti-histamine, it does have seratonin antagonistic effects, and, has been best used as a migraine preventative in years past. Since it is cheap, could try it, but likely should start low dose and aim for about 4mg every 6 hrs. May take about two weeks to decide success at the higher dose. ...Read more
