Has anyone used TheraSpecs, if so what was your experience? I'm looking at the ones that can be worn over prescription glasses

Bright light is definitely a trigger and even when light wasn't the particular trigger when a migraine starts I often wear sunglasses indoors. I even had to put them on during church Sunday because the sunlight was glaring off of the snow on a hill across the street from our church. The window it was coming in was on the other side of the sanctuary and just barely in my peripheral vision,… read more

Does your child suffer worse migraines than you?

I get migraines about 1x a week and can function for part of them but my son (16) gets them several times a week or ones that last for days. He missed more than 70% + of school days and social activities. I just don't know what to do at this point. We have recently changed neurologist from a pediatric one to an regular and he said he was on very low peds doses of meds and switched him to adult doses as he is the size of an adult. This doesn't seem to help. Last… read more

I had really weird visual aura this morning and I am now getting scared of auras. Does anyone else feel scared?

It was the first time I had this particular one and instantly recognised it as a migraine aura then I think because I recognised it so early it actually scared me.
Luckily my wife noticed I went quiet and saw me staring at the light and she went straight for my medication and told me to take.
Anyway like I said, does anyone else get scared now? Or have you all just settled with it?

Getting the Aura scares me to no end and makes me tear up,( not cry because that hurts too bad). You are not alone.
