I have SLE along with discoid lupus and Sjogren's disorder. I have history of migraines but recently have had increase (two weeks) of aura and migraines. I have been taking Advil daily for 12 days! I was wondering if there is anything I could do to stop number of migraines? Thank You Lisa
Since the migraines have recently increased in frequency it is important to determine the cause of this. Has there been change in your dietary habit or have you been under undue stress?
Please maintain a headache diary or use the migraine tracker to identify the trigger for your migraines.
If advil is not working you may need prescription migraine medication like Imirex etc.
You can also take magnesium supplements as they have been found to help with migraines.
