Hi everyone,

My wife and I (were both female) are trying to become pregnant, but I suffer from New Persistent Daily Chronic Headaches with Migraine. I haven’t had a pain free day in over 9 years. I am currently weaning off my narcotics (one of the VERY FEW medications that have worked for me) and I currently do IM injections of benadryl, which helps so much.

Because of the weaning, my migraine pain is coming back at full force and I don’t know what I am going to do once I become pregnant. What I am looking for is potential ideas to help diminish the pain during those nine months. Any lessening of the pain would be great. What has worked for other people? Anything I should avoid?

I appreciate any and all help!

Try large doses of a pharmaceutical-grade ubiquinone every day. Has great benefits on migraine and helps increase fertility and encourages stronger eggs/sperm. Our mitochondria depend on CoQ10 for ATP, so they can carry out physiological functions, without CoQ10 (production starts declining at age 20) many have experienced myopathies in cells. Worth a try for a more successful pregnancy - my cousin completely eliminated migraines with a 400mg ubiquinone/day

I would find a Headache center, in one of the best hospitals in your area.

I go to the one in Phila, Pa at Thomas Jefferson Hospital. My pain level is a 4 on most days. very manageable. No narcs.
