Has A Tracking Calendar Work For You? How Do You Use It?

Has A Tracking Calendar Work For You? How Do You Use It?

I'm thinking about using a tracking calendar, but I'm unsure what they want me to track.

Well, obviously the migraines...but how will it help?

Has anyone used one and found them helpful, and if so...what did you gain from it?

Thanks!

Have a beautiful day.

Has Anyone Quit Their Preventative Because It Took Forever To Get Refilled?

I was taken off topomax 3 weeks ago when i got botox and was given samples of qulipta. Now its been a week without any medicine and i had my 2 migraines. But that is usual.

2 Questions Actually, That Make Migraine Pain Worse, How Do You Handle When You Can't Stop Crying And Same For Stress

2 Questions Actually, That Make Migraine Pain Worse, How Do You Handle When You Can't Stop Crying And Same For Stress

Sometimes I cry just because I am in so much pain even though crying makes the pain worse but I have to get it out it seems. Also I cry when family or friends are in trouble or hurt.
Same thing with stress, I have been able for the most part to keep it at bay for myself, but when my kids or other family or friends are in trouble or hurt, I don't know how to keep the stress and my anxiety disorder under control 🤔

Thank you!
