Are they still migraines if you don't have the usual symptoms?

Are they still migraines if you don't have the usual symptoms?

I've been told my chronic headaches aren't actually migraines because they don't follow the normal patterns. First, they are whole head every day, all day pain, not just centered in one area of the head. Also, I don't have any of the triggers or reactions like most people - no light sensitivity, no nausea, no auras, nothing. Just constant, steady pain. Does anybody else have this same problem?

Does Botox help?

Does Botox help?

I have been having chronic migraines for like 10 yrs. nothing helps my last shot is Botox. Kind of scared to try it. What are your thoughts of someone that has had Botox? My neurologist suggested this. I have tried all meds and nothing works. I am on prevention meds and I get rebound headaches from over taking the meds because of having them so much. I have to call out of work all the time and they even threatened to write me up for Missing so many days. There is nothing I can do about it. I am… read more

I want to get a daith?

I want to get a daith?

I want to get a daith piercing, but do not know which side to get or if they work. I have various types of migraines, mostly they radiate from side to side. If anyone has any information or maybe pics of the area that was pierced for them so I know where the pressure point I'm aiming for is, I would be greatly appreciative.I will be going to a Tattoo piercer to do this. Thanks..

Is it a migraine?

Is it a migraine?

I started having a floater and pinprick lights 2 days ago in just one eye. They have been there the whole 2 days. I had 2 jabbing headaches for maybe an hour each since then. I went to the ER and the ophthalmologist yesterday and they didn't see anything wrong with my eyes.

I have been having headaches for maybe a week now before the vision changes. I rarely get any headache so it's kind of alarming for me.

I failed to mention the headaches to the ophthalmologist because there was no pain at… read more

Went to ER IMMEDIATELY. In the time it took to get there the blockage moved to… read more

Issues with computers, IPads and phone

I love the internet and Facebook but being on my IPAD, phone and computer make my headaches worse. It can even trigger a migraine. Anyone else have that problem.

Theraspecs make blue light filtering glasses for this. I bought a pair for my 13 year old to wear when he’s on the Xbox and they seem to help.
