I'm seriously considering the Daith piercing. Does anyone have an opinion on them and not getting one from a Dr. but a piercing place?

I'm seriously considering the Daith piercing. Does anyone have an opinion on them and not getting one from a Dr. but a piercing place?

I have a lot of headaches, I'm talking every day. Not all of them are migraines, some are tension headaches. I can't get the medications I used to use, so now I'm stuck with Excedrin Migraine which probably isn't good for me to take every day. I really need to find a new treatment. I'm really looking for opinions about the Daith piercing. People I've met in person say it works great.… read more

Who takes Botox and another medicine?

I have been on Botox for three years and just started Aimovig a couple of months ago. It does not work for me and thinking about switching to one of the other newer medicines but wasn't sure what other new medicines go along with the Botox.

Trying to find right doctor - Status Migrainosus

Trying to find right doctor - Status Migrainosus

I am on day 152 of a ongoing migraine. All the doctors have said is that it is a status migrainosus. We have done several nerve blocks which have not worked. I continue to do Botox, Aimovig, preventative meds, and abortive meds. Nothing is helping. In the hospital, they did a CT, MRI/MRA/MRV, and a spinal tap. They gave me several different migraine cocktails - none of them worked. They gave me Toradol which I told them I had been given several times and it did not… read more

I only get migraines when barometric pressure drops, usually before a storm. Any good remedies for this?

I only get migraines when barometric pressure drops, usually before a storm. If I don't drink coffee or something with caffeine right away, nothing helps at all. Does anyone have good remedies for this kind of migraine?

I wish I did. When there are a series of storms, I take a low dose of prednisone for about a week. Seems to break the cycle.

How do you manage interactions with migraines?

How do you manage interactions with migraines?

In my 64,years, I have explained “I have a migraine” thousands of times. To family, loved ones, friends and even during social interactions, to offer explanation for myself. Those even closest to us, can often react with a sigh, eye rolling or smirk, and comments of total misunderstanding, of where we’re coming from. Yet in reality we are coping best we can. Yet I’m feeling more and more, that I literally hate hearing myself say, “ I have a migraine “. It is… read more
