Can People Share Their Experiences Of Taking Aimovig?
A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭

I’m having trouble getting my insurance to cover Emgality and my neuro says that Aimovig might be easier to get through for some reason. However, I’m rather concerned about the severe constipation side effect that has caused some patients to need surgery as that has been an issue I’ve had my whole life. How have you guys combatted that side effect? Any info you think would be useful would be much appreciated! TIA! 😊

How Much Does The Weather Play A Role With Your Migraine
A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭

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

Same here. When I grab a Ubrelvy my family knows a storm is coming. It can be taken every 24-48 hours & it does sometimes stop a migraine before it gets bad.

Grinding Teeth
A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭

Is anyone else grinding their teeth? My bottom teeth hurt so bad from the grinding and my jaw is so sore. I am doing this during the day and not at night. I am taking Alprazolam ER 0.5mg 4 times a day. Helps some days more than others. I do 70g of Amovig and Botox injections.

Has anyone had any luck with Aimovig injections? I just started my first injection today. I have chronic migraine and nothing I have tried in the past has helped. Hoping this will work for me!
