has your doctor never suggested you try Triptans, for example Naratriptan ( Amerge in U.S.A. I think )...I've had migraines since mid-eighties, at first I only had paracetamol and it didnt do a thing, I used to lie unable to even talk, just be sick, my son would bring me water that I couldnt drink. Then I was given Cafergot ( Ergotamine )...this does get rid of the pain but the new doctor I saw when I moved just nagged me about how dangerous it was...I didnt care as long as I got relief. Eventually he gave me Naratriptan ( Amerge? ) and I now take them almost daily, ( though sometimes with 1 or 2 weeks free ). I eventually thought it was weather changes that affected me but the doctors I saw all were non-commital, made me feel as though I was silly to suggest this. Now I'm afraid that they will stop giving me the Naramig one day as it is very expensive. I just found this site and to see the messages about weather headaches has been so amazing, I was beginning to think I was going crazy.
God Bless you All.
