I Get Migraine Headaches

For sufferers of the insanely painful headaches known as Migraines 6,579 People

    I have had several weeks of unbearable stress,

    no matter which way I turn I get more dumped on me. Today at work I was standing on the loading dock with one foot in the back of a tractor trailer truck. When all of sudden one of my employees moved the truck forward. Of course what a fall I took. My elbow, back and shoulder...

    My migraine went away

    when I told my therapist I'm a lesbian. It might come back since I'm still living a double life but at least it isn't hurting right now. Living the authentic life. It never occurred to me that this could have something to do with this. I always thought I could live however I...

    migraine aren't just headaches in fact the head

    pain is not as bad as the other neurological symptoms. needs a different name so people don't think I lost my job due to headaches. so hard to explain so I usually don't try.

    I hardly get auras before a migraine this days.

    I used to get them quite frequently before starting daily medication. Today my vision keeps going in my left eye (it used to always be my right) also seeing star bursts. Rescue meds on board, since from past experience I know I have about 15-20 minutes before hell breaks loose...

    I have had a migraine

    for a year now - non stop - dipping between a 4/10 and a 10/10 on the pain scale from day to day. It was so bad that I passed out a couple days from the pain. But today, it went away! Or at least it's at a 1/10 - the kind of headache you get when you think or focus too hard on...

    Pain and exhaustion. Nauseous

    but hungry. Digestive system out of whack, yet aroused. Sensitivity to every light, sound and smell, yet my brain can't focus. It's like a temporary bout with every kind of mental illness.

    I have a genetic link to getting migraines,

    from my grandfather, to my mother, to me, to 3 of my 4 children and now on to my oldest grandson who is 13. From my mother's day it was to just go lay in a dark, quiet room with ice packs on your neck until they went away. My treatment started out that way when I was about 18...

    I've had chronic migraines

    since I was a child. I've been on Topamax 100mg, Imitrex, and Fioricet. My neurologist recently recommended stopping the Imitrex and taking Amerge and Diclofenac on the onset of a migraine. I feel the Amerge/Diclofenac combination has done wonders! I went from getting Toradol...

    Took 2 Maxalts yesterday without eliminating the pain, was just really sleepy. And now my 3rd day starting the same - and I have a job interview today. I'm so torn - take a Maxalt and MAYBE get relief but not be very sharp. Or endure headache and still not be very sharp? Freakin...

    I'm dealing with one right now and I'm in so much pain. It's been a while since it's been this bad. It hurts opening my eyes, it hurts closing them. I feel sick as well as my head hurting. I want this to stop. Neurologist couldn't find anything. Only time it stopped was when I...

    I had a friend who used migraines

    as an excuse to get out of everything! I have them too. They absolutely suck. But if I'm at work I usually tried my best to work trough it. Even if I had an aura.

    Anyone get migraines with auras?

    the auras are so scary. I had one where my peripheral vision was completely gone and the left side of my face mouth and tongue went completely numb. I sometimes would get the aura with no migraine. doctor put me on topomax and it's been working good.

    and see how it worked for me before I shared this. I was suffering migraines on a weekly basis, some that took me down for days at a time. I bought this bracelet when the fair was in town back in October. Yes, I was one of the suckers that stopped as soon as he said "do you...

    ... The best times with migraines were the times

    when the pain drove me to vomiting to the point of pained dry heaving... At the same time,of course increasing the blood pressure to my already inflamed cranium, driving the urge to throw up that much more... Strangely enough it had an easing effect. Since the pain was so...

    I had a stroke at the age of 34.

    I have experienced migraines since I was about 9 or so. I don't think anyone, including doctors, took it seriously at all until I had a stroke at a young age. I was hoping to find a group for stroke survivors, but it doesn't look like it. I don't even see an option to create one...

    I Hate Migraines

    I too used to suffer terribly from migraines, from the age of 13/14. I had no idea what they we're, i would cry as i would not be able to see anything out of my eyes, they would go all blurry, then my mouth and hands would go numb that is what made me sick, being sick made me...

    I feel really bad for anyone

    who gets migraine headaches on a regular basis. I get them once in a while but they aren't too bad if I treat them early by taking Excedrin and laying down. They last anywhere from about 6-48 hrs. On a pain scale of 1-10, they are usually a 6 or 7 which probably isn't nearly as...

    So.. I did my own research

    for several months trying to draw a conclusion to why I am getting these head plaugues. I think it may be supratrochlear neuralgia. The headaches starts from the area between my nose bridge and beginning of eyebrow. When I press it hurts worse. Prescription meds do not work...

    All ruined by a migraine. I don't know how many birthdays, family celebrations, events or just plain normal days I've lost to these headaches. This one is linked in with my hormones so even when I have found something that works for a while; I am guaranteed to get this one. The...

    I have migraines on nearly a daily basis.

    Some are worse than others, but they all are painful, blinding, nauseating, and make you just wish for a cure. I have been having migraines since I was 13 years old and they have progressively become worse over the years. Three years ago I was scanned for a brain tumor because...

    I used to get them all the time and never had relief. The prescription meds made me so out of it, I couldn't do anything if I took it. So I quite those rather quickly. It was really bad at one point, and I would have to just go to a dark room and close my eyes. Then I went to...
