I had my first migraine at age 15, it occurred along with an optical aura and numbing of my lips and fingers on one hand. My first episode of optic neuritis occurred 10 years later, at age 25. I was diagnosed with MS 7 years later, at age 32. The frequency of migraines began to increase a few years ago, and I have been taking verapamil daily as a preventative ever since. I no longer get them, unless I forget to take my daily dose of verapamil (480mg), which rarely happens these days (as the pain is unbearable).
