I am a very private person and have never posted anything on a discussion board. However, I wanted to post this in the hope that it will save just one person from needless suffering. I suffered from terrible migraines (often lasting several days) for years. I was on some pretty heavy-duty medications and even visited urgent care to get Imitrix shots. However, as soon as I was diagnosed with Hashimotos Thyroiditis (slow thyroid) and went on thyroid medication, the migraines completely disappeared. That was 6 years ago.

My thyroid levels were always borderline so it took an ultrasound to diagnose Hashimotos. Blood tests were never out of range enough to warrant medication, even though I knew there was a problem. It wasn't until I also started getting hives that I went to the Mayo Clinic and an endocrinologist and was finally diagnosed. Now, as long as I keep my TSH levels around 1.5, I remain migraine-free. When I think of all those years I suffered with migraines, missing out on life, stuck in a dark room, and taking unnecessary medication, it saddens me. If just one person reads this and is helped, this post will be worth it.

I also had a low thyroid, on medication, although it has not effected my migraines. They are still at the same annoying up to debilitating level they have been since 2006.

However, glad to hear that it has help someone, I had heard a rumor that it works that way.
