I am new here and I have a question. 
A month ago I hurt my wrist and my doctor had me take ibuprofen 3 times a day to reduce the swelling.  I took it for 2 days and everyday I took it I had a migraine, I did not think anything of it at first.  But then I was off work one day and I had forgotten the ibuprofen there so I did not take it, and I did not have a migraine that day, but I took it the next day at work and I did, that was the last time I took it. 
This was one of the first time I have ever taken Ibuprofen, I normally don't take it because it has never done anything for pain for me. 
So I am wondering if anyone has ever heard of ibuprofen triggering migraines, I know it is used to treat them so it sounds weird to me.  I am going to the dr. next week for my migraines and was going to ask then, but I was wondering in the meantime if any one had heard of it.
