    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.

    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.
