Does anyone here suffer from aura migraines? Have you found a link with arthritis?
I have Rheumatoid Arthritis & have had migraines on & off since puberty but for the last couple of years I have suffered from repeated aura migraines which usually pass after 20mins without medication thankfully there is usually no pain but I find them so unnerving. I’ve been mulling over causes for the increased frequency in attacks & have a phone appointment to review my arthritis medication soon (& a dental check up, another possible aggravating factor) I am on Tocilizumab, Celecoxib & occasional Amiltryptline.
I thought it may be linked to me starting biologic treatment as the aura migraines started around the same time. The trouble is so did the menopause & also Covid 19 restrictions & my needing a knee replacement has lead to a big decrease in exercise & getting out in the fresh air. Maybe it’s a combination of all these things but boy does it get me down. I just want to find the cause, treat it & move on, but life’s never that simple.
Sometimes I jest & say ‘Oh just add it to the ever increasing list of ailments’ but it is causing me worry, the thought of interfering with my arthritis treatment again because of it adds to my concern.
