I have been migraine-free for a year! (MTHFR mutation)

Recommended Posts

I am posting this in the hopes that it helps someone else with chronic migraines.

 

For years I had regular and very long-lasting migraines. After first getting them 15 years ago, they kept increasing in frequency and duration. 

A little over a year ago, my pdoc suggested testing me for the MTHFR gene mutation in the hopes of helping my depression with L-methylfolate if I did have it. I have the heterozygous form of the mutation, which means I can convert *some* folic acid to folate in my body but my ability to do so is hampered.

 

After a few months on Enlyte, my migraines disappeared. I know this likely isn't the cause of most people's migraines, but I wanted to share in case it helps anyone else suffering. My pdoc has a couple other patients with migraines and the MTHFR mutation whose episodes have been greatly reduced due to prescription supplementation. 

 

I never thought I could be free from the hell my migraines caused me.

Wow, that's so fascinating, and fantastic for you. Thank you for sharing, I have been a migraine sufferer since I was 16.  I found out a few years ago that I too have the gene mutation, but nothing was ever brought up about migraines. Definitely going to give this a go. I am on day 5 of a hormonal migraine now, and nothing much works, this gives me some hope! Thank you :)
