I Get Migraine Headaches

    Migraines

    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...

    I keep getting migraine headaches at least

    once a month. I am taking the pill Cymbalta and wondered if that is what is causing my migraines. I also take TRAZODONE. which helps me sleep at night. And I take something for my hypothyroidism. When I get these migraines it usually starts with zag-lines, but it doesn't seem to...

    sometimes. Migraine scenario People: "ooh i have a migraine" *takes a pain killer and it goes away* Me: *has a steadily increasingly more painful headache and starts to cry which makes it worse, takes special painkillers, it doesn't go away, i wear sunglasses turn off all the...

    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...

    Horrible Semester

    I got my first migraine in fifth grade. I went blind, I was incoherent, I was puking and I really truly thought I was dying. I was young though. I get what are called "A Typical" migraines. It's basically similar to having a stroke. They're still even now at almost 20 years old...

    ... 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...

    They are THE WORST. It feels like a damn ice

    pick being pounded into one side of your head. One time I had a really bad one that wouldn't go away for 6 days. Anytime I heard noise or saw light I would cry because it made it worse. I ended up at the hospital and they gave me some drugs that worked after a couple hours. I...

    So, I started the botox injections yesterday

    for my migraines. I was good for the first two hours after. Then the pain hit...a lovely side effect is that after injections, it can trigger a migraine as well as soreness at the injection sites. It was the worst I have had in a long time and it pretty much kicked my butt...

    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 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...

    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...

    It's a nightmare with brittle bones disease.

    Any headache or bump on my head results in me having to get x rays and MRI scans to see if its a fracture. It's one of the most dangerous results of my disease and could easily result in brain damage

    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...

    Thankfully, they're not too often.

    Usually triggered by excessive tiredness, strain or poor lighting/glare. But they're so debilitating. The aura preceding one is the omen.

    I've been suffering with non stop headaches

    since I was 13 years old. Now I am 25 going on 26 years old. My GP has put me on several different prescription painkillers over the years to try to either prevent them or control the pain. Every minute of the day I am in pain from my headaches. I'm on strong prescription...

    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...
