Hello, I'm Susan. How are you all?

I'm new here, and I have chronic Migraines. I have had them since I was 16, putting me at a total of about 7-8 years. Right now I use a Beta Blocker and Maxalt. Fun stuff those Migraines right? eyes I have no questions. Just introducing myself. I try just about everything to prevent my migraines, but nothing helps. I drink Tea, I have as little in take of caffine as possible. I'm good with stress, I do breathing excersizes. I stretch, I'm active. I have two dogs that I play with every day :) I take warm baths, do the cold compresses, massages, a little bit of yoga, lights off. jeesh!

It is nice to meet you all in advance.

Thanks for joining us Sea...
We are a  big family here and love to have you.
I have a dog that keeps me going, sometimes I think he is the ONLY thing that keeps me going! Sounds like you have a pretty good regimine in place that is working for you.
It's great to meet you! Hopefully I will be by again soon and we can chat-when I have two brain cells that are working! Right now this is all I can muster.
Well, often and enjoy...

Hi Sea,

Welcome! We're always glad to have new members. I use a Beta Blocker as well as Topamax. I find the Beta Blocker reduces the throbbing when I do get migraines.

I don't have a dog but do have two cats. One comes in very handy, he sits on the pillow on my head when my head really hurts.

It sounds like you're doing all the right things for your migraines. I look forwards to speaking more with you.

The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, or not to anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.   Buddha
