I have always had some visual disturbance with and preceding a migraine. However it is rarer that I have a super aura. The first time I had one, I woke to the certainty of police and emergency vehicles outside our window. The red lights were flashing all around my room. I got out of bed to look out the window, there was nothing. Yet the red flashing continued for a few minutes. Followed by a migraine the first time, but not every time. Sometimes it looks more like… read more
It is a beautiful sunny day, the kind of day that I should be out doing some yard work. But, I just can't. My husband works at least 60 hours a week and this weekend he is working on my summer car. We have hired someone to do our yard work and some inside work that I am unable to do. I find it frustrating, and embarrassing that I have to hire someone to work for me and I find myself feeling very guilty. I don't know how to deal with these emotions. I was always the… read more
Has anyone had this happen to them??
I woke up with migraine. Got up and took migraine meds. 10 minutes later while laying down with eyes shut I saw 3 bright full blue moons that grew in rapid sec section, one after another.
I looked at alarm clock and I could only read the top half of numbers. Got up, turned light on and bottom of vision in one eye was gone! Looked like jagged sheets of ice.
Went to ER IMMEDIATELY. In the time it took to get there the blockage moved to… read more
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

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.… read more
When I get a migraine my neck hurts really bad. I have found a neck brace really helps with the pain. Does any one else have this problem? Has any one else used a neck brace for this too? What else has any one tried that works?
Idk if many of you have seen the Friday the 13Th movies. If you have you know the song that the kids in one of them sing. "1-2 Freddy's comming for you. 3-4 better lock the door. " and so on. Well I was also thinking about the docs pain level chart 1=-10=. Well I came up with a mix you may find funny. When some one asks here you go.
1-2 I am ok how are you?
3-4 I don't want to be here no more.
5-6 I am out of this.
7-8 I vomited all I ate.
9-10 Better haul me in.
Well I hope I made… read more
I have been having chronic migraines for like 10 yrs. nothing helps my last shot is Botox. Kind of scared to try it. What are your thoughts of someone that has had Botox? My neurologist suggested this. I have tried all meds and nothing works. I am on prevention meds and I get rebound headaches from over taking the meds because of having them so much. I have to call out of work all the time and they even threatened to write me up for Missing so many days. There is nothing I can do about it. I am… read more
