Question About Trying Different Type Of Medication?
A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭

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?

Frova only occasionally worked as a partial preventative if I was going to be around smoke. Smoke (especially cigar) is one of my triggers. On days I want to leave the house, Frova worked to prevent a… read more

Does Anyone Have Lasting Tingling In Cheeckbone, Tongue?
A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭

I've been taking Axert for migraines for several years now, maybe this is contributing? I noticed tingling during and after a migrane, but now have had persistent pins/needles/tingling in my tongue a week after the last migraine. Also have tingling in my left pinky, and will be talking about this with my GP.

A MyMigraineTeam Member

Not noticed my tongue but my bottom lip tingles just the bottom one. I think it's when my BP and Migraine issues collide? My left leg and foot and hands/fingers have tingles but not sure why.

Has Anyone Heard Of MigraineX?
A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭

"MigraineX, clinically proven to prevent travel and weather related migraine symptoms before they start" They are some sort of ear plug, you can also download an app that tells you when the the air pressure is going to change. I just stumbled upon them while ordering a migraine ice hat. They are not expensive, about $12.00, but it seems that it could be one of those, "if it sounds to good to be true" items.

I'm interested if feedback, both positive and negative.

I use the app and love it. You have to play with alert settings to determine your barometric pressure fluctuation tolerance. I find rapid pressure drops to trigger my migraines much more than when the… read more

This week, i have felt better but my mood has been all over the place. I am laughing one second and crying the next. My anxiety is so bad.

How Do You Know How To Rate Pain?
A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭

I'm afraid they'll think I'm hyperbolic. The faces on the chart help me more than coming up with a number. I have OCD, so I get hung up on the exact right number.

A MyMigraineTeam Member

I usually base it on what I'm able to do during the migraine. If it's just a 1-2 then I can go about my day, and feel fine but kind of have a mild migraine that is there in the back of my head. 3-4 i… read more
