I am finding that you have to copy and paste the first four links...the one from the headache foundation works fine if you click on it...sorry guys! (hey...you still get there!!! )

Ha ha...I feel like I am "talking" to myself in this thread!
No, I just found an interesting site...its www.myheadachediary.com you have to register to use it, but when you have a headache you input some information like the date and time, what type of headache you have, how much sleep you had the day prior to the headache, what you ate before the onset, pain intensity, warning signs and symptoms, possible triggers, treatment and how the treatment worked on a 1-10 scale, you then submit the information and it calculates the data.
I created a few test entries so I could see what the reports look like. They are great. They show pie charts with what percentage is highest for each...for example it said that 66% of the time irregular sleep patterns trigger migraines for me and that 100% of the time fatigue and mood changes were signs of a migraine to come...
I think the only INCONVENIENT thing is that I don't feel like being on the computer most of the time when I am in the midst of the a migraine!
Just thought you all might want to check this out...I have a few other great headache diaries too...
That's exactly the point!!!! Thanks for the post!!! I have used these before and they do serve the purpose...at least the staff knows that you have done your homework and you're not just a junkie!
If anyone else has used these and wants to share an experience...PLEASE DO!
Here are the forms you guys...
Take this to your DR to fill out so when/if you have to make a trip to the ER they have written out the course of treatment they want prescribed for you!!!
I am going to repost these soon!
I can't seem to open these files, but I would LOVE a form to use for the ER. I am tired of the ER staff rolling their eyes and telling me to simply try toradol.
Can you maybe re-post them or email them to me? Thank you so much! Everything you are doing here means more than you can ever imagine!!!
Thank you for saying that *~*hugs*~*
I do my best and sometimes wish there was more I could do!!!
I have been fighting with those links today to get them to work...I won!!! I have just added the ER Form at the bottom of my signature click "VIEW IMAGE" under ER Form and then you can print that off, save it, or copy and paste it to whatever you would like...you could even email it to your doctor. Whatever is easier!
I figure this way, it is always there and we won't have to keep bumping that thread to the top too
Thank you for all your wonderful posts...you all really make this place what it is!
