I had it done years ago after first getting them. It didn't have any effect on my migraines. That's just me....might work for others.

How Much Does The Weather Play A Role With Your Migraine

How Much Does The Weather Play A Role With Your Migraine

I can't believe how much better I feel now that the temperature has dropped. There also does not seem to be the big fluctuations in the temperature, humidity and barometric pressure. The thing that is still messing with my head is precipitation. I know the day before it's going to rain, then it rains and then it takes a day to feel better. That's three days out of my life. Weather migraines are really bad, anybody else have them? In sure lots of us do. Anyone know how to avoid or cope… read more

Who Experiences Auras Before Migraines Sometimes?

Who Experiences Auras Before Migraines Sometimes?

I have always had some visual disturbance with and preceding a migraine. However it is rarer that I have a super aura. The first time I had one, I woke to the certainty of police and emergency vehicles outside our window. The red lights were flashing all around my room. I got out of bed to look out the window, there was nothing. Yet the red flashing continued for a few minutes. Followed by a migraine the first time, but not every time. Sometimes it looks more like moving grayish flying shadows… read more

Flashing Blue Lights?

I was in a minor auto accident last Wednesday and have had a migraine that started afterwards. I've been having these 'visions' where I'm seeing flashing blue lights every few moments. Does anyone have a suggestion about the visions I'm having?

Do You Feel Guilty About Things You Can Not Do?

Do You Feel Guilty About Things You Can Not Do?

It is a beautiful sunny day, the kind of day that I should be out doing some yard work. But, I just can't. My husband works at least 60 hours a week and this weekend he is working on my summer car. We have hired someone to do our yard work and some inside work that I am unable to do. I find it frustrating, and embarrassing that I have to hire someone to work for me and I find myself feeling very guilty. I don't know how to deal with these emotions. I was always the doer, the one that if you… read more

At What Number On A Scale From 1-10 Do You Rate Your “Average” Migraine Pain?

At What Number On A Scale From 1-10 Do You Rate Your “Average” Migraine Pain?

I have read comments about migraine scales being different for everyone. I agree with that. Which left me wondering, with 1 being the lowest and 10 the highest, pain level and incapacitation. What do you consider a “average” or tolerable number on the scale? For me, at 1-3 I feel like I could throw a party, in my head😉. 3-4 is normal tolerable, allowing me to still function. 5-6 I feel anxious, cautious and usually take medication. 7-8 I’m seeking dark, quiet and bring nausea medication on… read more
