Does Work Tend To Aggravate Migranes?

Does Work Tend To Aggravate Migranes?

I already lost my career once and feel I'm about to lose it all over again
When the migranes first hit, in 2018, they literally came out of the blue. I was fine one day, than BAM at work the next excruciating head pain, dizziness and nauseau. Shortly after, diagnosed with chronic migranes. On various medical leaves for a yr. Migranes declined a bit but than, the second I went back to work they hit again in clusters. I finally had to resign.

Long story short, took another yr for med… read more

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

Does Anyone Get Migraines During Weather Changes?

Does Anyone Get Migraines During Weather Changes?

I often, well almost always, get a migraine when the weather changes, especially when the temperature drops or when it rains. Medicine often doesn't help. If this happens to you, how do you control or ease the pain?

I get them very often when barometric pressure changes. They start late in the day before the pressure moved in and they are killers! Pain in left eye, temple throbbing, jaw spasms and extra tight at… read more

Barometric Pressure....how Does It Affect You And Is There Anything You Can Do To Avoid Them?

Barometric Pressure....how Does It Affect You And Is There Anything You Can Do To Avoid Them?

My migraines are definitely triggered by the barometric pressure going down. It doesn't seem to bother me when it rises. I live in the Calgary, Alberta, Canada region and we have the worst BP changes in the country. Used to love the Chinooks over the mountains as it brings warmer weather but now that I have migraines, I dread them.

Definitely affects and unfortunately I haven’t found anything to offset the effects

Migraine Elimination Diet

Migraine Elimination Diet

Has anybody tried the migraine elimination diet? I was just giving it by my neurologist and I am very overwhelmed and intimidated.

A MyMigraineTeam Member

I would try using a calendar to mark everytime you get a migraine. Also write down what you ate that day. You can then start weeding out what might be triggering them.

Ocular Migraine

Ocular Migraine

I recently started experiencing some changes in my vision. Been to the eye doctor and they spent some time looking at my retina and at everything else to make sure everything was okay and it all looked normal other than a couple small floaters. Mostly the changes that I'm seeing look like little floaters all over my vision and some days are worse than others. My ophthalmologist suggested I follow up with my neurologist because it might be an ocular migraine. I was wondering if anyone else had… read more
