We all obviously have migraines--Or we wouldnt be here
We all dont like them. Some of us go full nine yards with the side effects of migraines like vomiting.
But we all want to decrease them
Lets get those pens and papers out guys. Find out why you are getting your migraines.
Write down everything you eat and drink, when your migraine comes, how long it lasts, what you were doing when migraine started. Look for common factors.
Also, do you have long hair? Sounds nuts, but if you do, your hair is heavyyyyy. It can trigger a migraine. Try cutting your hair to see if it helps.
I had 16-18 migraines a month. Im your lucky tester, and did the topax double blind study (my doc threw me in the study and made sure I had the real pill). On this double blind study, I noticed my 16-18 migraines went to 3-4 a month. Woah, what an improvement! Then lovely insurance when I got out of study wouldnt cover the topamax (bummer the dang migraines came back). My gyn suggested to keep a diary of what I ate, drink, all I did when migraine came on, when migraine started. My pcp, he explained what parts of the head means for migraines. Up front, heck allergies/sinus. back is stress, etc. So I started testing things. I found out too much chocolate, caffine, soda, coffee, bananas, allergies triggered me. After that I had back to 3-4 migraines a month. A friend said her daughter had migraines and she had long hair like mine. Her daughter didnt get migraines after she cut her hair. I figured, heck its hair...it will grow back . I took my too the bottom of butt hair, and had 13 inches cut..donated to Locks of Love. For the next 2 months, I only had 1 migraine. I was like huh? Then I got sick, with auto immune dissease and I do a pill form of chemo. I was like what the heck...I'm prob gonna lose my hair lets whack more off. So I now have it to my shoulders. No migraines yet....
So I say find the triggers, avoid them or treat them.. And I feel for you guys too.
