One thought on “Borderline Personality Disorder and Migraines”
I am 1 of those lucky people who has BPD & migraines. While my neurologist was no help, my internist put me on Topamax, which not only got rid of the migraines, but also the majority of my everyday headaches. There's an added bonus which most of us will enjoy too-weight loss. I have lost 30 lbs since I went on the Topamax in May.
