They put me on topamax 25mg eventually up to 3 times a day to help with my migraines. Has anyone else tried this? Any weird side effects?

Do daith piercings work on tentions migranes?

Do daith piercings work on tentions migranes?

I have heard a lot about how daith piercings can help with headaches and migraines, but do they help with tension pain? I know I would have to get both sides done but is it worth it?

A MyMigraineTeam Member said:

I had mine done several years ago and they seem to lessen over time, too.

Does anyone have lasting tingling in cheeckbone, tongue?

Does anyone have lasting tingling in cheeckbone, tongue?

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.

I get pins and needles from my elbow down to the tip of my pinkie finger and was told it was part of my migraine symptoms too. It never occurred to me… read more

Migraines vs Menopause

Migraines vs Menopause

Does anyone have migraines and think they were brought on by menopause? Or peri-menopause? I just turned 48, been having migraines for almost a year now, seems to becoming more frequently! Menstrual cycles are messed up also. Taking meds to regulate them, waiting for Mirana IUD Birth Control that should eliminate cycles, hopefully. Hoping it'll eliminate Migraines also. The worst migraines are 1-2 days before cycle starts, I've noticed, the last few months.
I've ordered the menopause OTC… read more

Is anyone else using DHE injections to get rid of a migraine once it has come on and what side effects do you get? How many do you need?

Is anyone else using DHE injections to get rid of a migraine once it has come on and what side effects do you get? How many do you need?

I was looking through the list of medications on this site and noticed that the form I take of one is not listed and that none of the members here I have come across yet are using. Is anyone else giving themselves DHE injections when they get a bad migraine? I give it in the side of the upper thigh. Sometimes I will have some slight ache in my muscles in my legs, or all muscles… read more

Light bulbs

Light bulbs

What kind of light bulbs do you use at home? I deal w/ many types of lighting at work and when I get home after my 12.5 hour shifts the last thing I want is to be blasted w/ more bright lights. I am ultra sensitive to lights as it is and wear tinted glasses at work and sunglasses outside of work (even at night and indoor). My roommate also suffers from migraines and I would like to replace all the light bulbs w/ something a lot less hurtful.

A MyMigraineTeam Member said:

I use the original lightbulbs that they're phasing out. I cannot use florescent, halogen, or led.

I have a few questions to pose to those that have gotten the daith piercing.

1. Are they easy to remove & put back in? I have multiple brain issues so i have to get annual scans so i have to remove ALL my facial piercings. I cannot get any piercings that i cannot remove myself or put back in myself.
2. Are they sensitive/painful to lie on or to remove/put back in?
3. How quickly did you notice the difference in your migraines?
4. Did you get both sides done? If not, do you think you should've?
5. Would you… read more
