Migraine is a neurological disease, of which the most common symptom is an intense and disabling episodic headache.

    New..Need advice on IV therapy for Migraines....

    Hi everyone! I suffer from migraines as well as fibromyalgia. I have tried all the Fibro meds with bad side effects, so I only take Norco for the pain. For my migraines, I started taking Topamax last November (25mg up to 50mg now). I never wanted to be on it, but I was on a chronic migraine last Sept-Nov and was at my wits end. It worked GREAT for a month and then stopped working. I went up to...

    Hi there, I'm new to this but I've just been feeling so down lately because of chronic migraines. I've had occaisonal migraines since  I was 14, but for almost 8 months now I've had chronic, almost daily headaches/migraines that severely impact my ability to do work and keep up with classes (I'm a college senior about to graduate). I have a top neurologist, take medications, have made lifestyle...

    I think I've found a major trigger for me!! I'm diligently trying to narrow down my migraine triggers, I have been dealing with these headaches for almost 20 years. I have my FIRST appt. with a neurologist at the end of this month. I am currently taking 200 mg of Topamax and Imitrex as needed. I have on average 4 migraines a week. I had 17 in August and 14 in July. I'll get on a run and have...

    Advice on Medicinal Marijuana for pain management

    2
    Hi, I've never done this before but I'm desperate. I'm 19 and I have chronic migraines. I've had them since I was 16 and it's kind of thrown everything off. I barely graduated high school. It's been a year since I've graduated and I don't have a job, no prospects of going to college anytime soon. As it is there's no plan for pain management and every preventative we've tried hasn't had any...

    Relpax vs. Maxalt vs. Zomig

    I have always used Relax as my drug of choice to get rid of a migraine. Lately, it either takes a long time to be effective or the migrane comes back within 24 hours.I used a Maxalt tablet and was very surprised how quickly it relieved my migraine.I just got a prescription for Zomig. I haven't even used samples of that drug. I don't know what to expect.Can anyone compare your experience with...

    Neurocardiogenic or Vasovagal Syncope and relation

    I am very puzzled by a horrid circumstance that presented to my wife 3 1/2 years ago, after open Nissen Fundoplication surgery to correct severe GERD. Within a week or two after this surgery, she also had an attack of severe pain in her back that proved with two more visits to the ER that she had a giant kidney stone. Thus within a month, she had to have relief on a Sunday with a ureter stent to...

    Migraines from a New Member

    I haven't had to take my Migraine medicine in about 3 days. That doesn't mean I haven't had migraines, they just haven't reached the point where I take the medicine. I've had migraines for years, but I only started getting prescription medicine for them in 2011. My migraines increased significantly in 2014 and I was finally diagnosed with a rare neurological disorder that contributed to them.  I...

    hello everyone. I'm new to the whole site, this is my first post. I'm 27 and have been suffering from migraines since I was 10. I've tried everything to prevent them, treat them. Every quick fix, to full on medical treatments. Recently my doc suggested stress may be one of my biggest triggers, and suggested I just talk things out. So if anyone here is willing to listen, I'd love someone to talk...
