Has anyone suffered from memory loss due to a migraine?

I was hospitalized over the weekend due to what started out as a horrible headache, then vomiting, and memory loss. At first they thought I may have had a mini stroke but all my tests came out negative. The Dr at the hospital suggested I talk with my primary Dr about migraines. My husband says I couldn't remember things for more than 30 seconds at a time. I kept asking the same questions over and over again and I couldn't answer questions I know the answers… read more

Question about trying different type of medication?

I was looking into different medication I haven't tried for my migraine and cluster headaches and i found almotriptan (Axert) and Frovatriptan (Frova) and was wondering if anyone has had any experience with these and can guide me on if they are worth me changing to?

I have been on Frova a few years now. It doesn’t help me much at all. Usually takes 2-3 doses to even touch the migraine and that’s the max for 24 hrs.… read more

Any suggestions for migraines while trying to conceive?

Hello,
I have had migraines for 20+ years. I have taken pretty much every medication on the market and tried most remedies. My husband and I are trying to conceive and I am trying to be very careful about what medication I take. However, when I get a migraine (or feel one coming on) Tylenol simply won’t touch it and I have to take Relpax, which is the ONLY thing that works. My OBGYN says I can take it as need it. I’m nervous (maybe somewhat irrationally)… read more

daith piercing

My migraines are normally between the dead center of my eyes. What would be a better side to get this piercing on for the best results? My migraines have been more frequent and getting more intense to where it’s hard to watch my son.
