I do not know if you saw what I wrote. It is a possibility for anyone reading this that it could happen to you. I had read about red dye #40 being made from petroleum oil only! In 2012, I quit eating… read more

I Can't Remember The Word To Use To When Telling A Story....

I Can't Remember The Word To Use To When Telling A Story....

Does anyone start to talk about something and at times can't think of the word, that use to come out no problem, to describe a situation or just plain 'ol tell a story and now someone will fill in that 'blank' for me. I would end up using my hands and arms to try to come up with the word like I'm playing charades! LOL. OMG it's embarrassing and frustrating and so obvious something is different

Triptan Overuse Rebound Headaches

Triptan Overuse Rebound Headaches

However, I had no idea that by taking the prescribed medication as directed, I could actually be causing more migraines. But if I don’t take them, I’m in excruciating pain and am… read more

How Many Migraine Sufferers Here Have A Straight Neck?

How Many Migraine Sufferers Here Have A Straight Neck?

X-rays taken two years ago showed I have no curve at all in my neck, what is medically called military neck or flat neck. I had some CT's done on my back this past summer and it showed that the straightening and reversal actually starts in my cervical spine. Just wondering what treatments anyone has tried that have helped this or made their migraines worse. Thank you.
