Ok...I'm new and have had migrains since I was in the fourth grade, I just graduated High School by the way. I've got my own Nero Dr. but we've went through all of the meds he has to give me. They are all knock offs of the big drugs out there. These were pills to prevent the migrains so you take them every day. I am sure you all know how this works. Any way, I went through 10 of them and then doubled up on them. I've tried Topamax and seizure meds and things for depression because they tend to get migrains to I've been told. Nothing works...he tells me I need to just go with it and as I get older they will get better. In a sense, they have but I still take about 3-4 Imatrex a week on a slightly normal week. about 5 on a bad week. Keep in mind only 2 are all you are supposed to take. Forgive me for giving so much info but I am use to it, for not many people understand it all.

I'm just wondering if you guys have some secrets to helping them out, or how to find out my triggers for I seem to not be able to find any. My migrains just come when they want, with one exception of the heat. I know that's a trigger.

Thanks for your time and I hope to hear from someone soon.

Try keeping a diary of everything you eat and drink. When you take a nap or you don't. How much you sleep ect......

I find that drinking lots of water helps...but not too much..then you just keep yourself in the bathroom.:)
