Hi all,

I just joined for the ulcerative colitis forum. I figured I'd drop in here as well since I get migraines. I did manage to find something which greatly reduced them and hope it's not a problem to share it here.

I started getting disabling migraines (when I could do nothing but hide in a dark room) suddenly about 6 years ago. The disabling type migraines would usually shoot up from a 2-3 a month to 3-4 a week during August and September. What I didn't know was that the "sinus-type" headaches I was getting more often than not turned out to be migraines as well. At least the Imitrix works on them, and a couple of doctors have told me it only works on migraines.

After a recommendation from an acquaintance and great deal of research, I decided to try this thing called the NTI-tss device. It's a little dental appliance I had my dentist order and fit me for. I wear it on my front teeth when I sleep and it stops my jaw muscles from clenching and biting. That must be a main trigger for me since (after a couple months) the daily headaches stopped almost entirely, and the disabling migraines went to maybe one every other month.

It sounds like this device helps most who try it, so I thought someone here might find it worth looking into.
