Re: Do you get migraines while pregnant?
Yes, I was diagnoses with migraines years ago...while in college...after all the scans and everything that rule everything else out. I have never been to a neurologist as they only started getting this bad with my pregnancies and to be honest no one ever suggested I see one until this pregnancy. I wouldn't say they have denied me meds as much as they have strongly recommended that I not take them b/c of their FDA ratings...I guess I'm just trying to figure out what my options are...it's hard dealing with migraines most every day...makes it hard to function KWIM?

My neurologist has had to make it clear that I am to be given certain medications ALWAYS as my migraines can and will get out of hand without them.
