While I don't have migraines and hardly ever have a headache, they are considered more common in people with MS.  I am lucky; good thing as I am a HUGE baby about headaches.

It is a good thought.  Aspartame is a baddy.  I know that I stopped using all artificial sweetners even after a firm MS diagnosis.  I feel much better drinking water and tea.  If I sweeten, I use stevia.

Really?? I have never heard of stevia. a while back--more like 15 years ago, my neurologist at the time--i was seeing him for migraines--told me always have a glass of soda or coffee a day to help prevent migraines. Soda is not the best for you i know, so i started drinking diet. I stopped drinking it about 4 months ago and switched to coffee--im still waiting for the "aquired" taste to set in (lol) my symptoms have not improved but got worse..i read somewhere that the symptoms can mimic ms, plus its not good for migraines.

I'ved had migraines since after I had both my kids which would be 30 yrs ago but they were not that bad but after my diagnosed with MS in 1993 I would say about couple yrs after they got pretty bad, every week and then I fell into this book I would say in year 2000 doing research for Migraines,  of Low Blood sugar and so went to see my Doctor to get tested and bingo I was diagnosed with Hypoglicymia or Low blood sugar so I still get them every once in a while now but that's usually when i'ved had too much sugar like chocolate etc... I probably will get them 3 times a year instead of every week like in the past or every month so I can take that,lol.  I hope that you can find something you can work with to make then less for your sake, because I know how they can really be hurtful and really we really don't need this extra pain to battle with  with MS.  Don't give up at trying to find the cause of your migraine i'm sure that some day you will.  Take care

I have had the worst migraines since starting the Avonex therapy.  Usually a day or two after the injection.  It is horrible.  then the rheumatologist gives me injections of steroids for the arthritis which makes it even worse.  What to do?
