Good evning ladys and gentalmen. I am currently at SOI west I have been having migraine head aches with Aura. I went to Medical for it and was put on Nortripyline for them. I have been having anywhere from 3-5 a week and my body pretty much shuts down when im having one. I have a passed history of Migraines from a Compressed skull fracture and surgery back in 1999. Last time I was treated for these it was 2003. I have a folow up tomorrow. Do any of you think they will try to discharge me for this? Ido Not want to be discharged. WHat do you think the DOC at BAS say?
Thank you- PFC Laws

It's all a case by case basis, everyone's different...
tl;dr version: Get through SOI and get to the schoolhouse/fleet, see the docs there, they'll do a much better job.
Best of luck to you,

I have no headache pain but I do have what you might mean as an "aura"
I had my first back in 1992, and didn't have another until my wife replaced the bulb in my desk lamp with one of the new florescent bulbs. I started having "Optical Migraines" daily. I got rid of the bulb, and I've only had two in the two month since.
There may be some connection. They are no doubt caused by pressure in the brain against a nerve, probably where a vein is incontact with the optical nerve. I notice that the flash in the same rhythem as my heartbeat.
My doc was concerned and sent me for a brain scan, but no results that explained it.

One of my first patients was an Army vet that fell off a barn roof and landed on the side of his head and neck. He told me that he had a migraine headache weekly for the last fifteen years.
After I adjusted his neck and upper back, his headaches stopped.
Try chiropractic care.
I will keep a good thought for you Marine.
