  • I've heard that caffiene can help. I got cramps when I had mine.

  • i get migraine 50% of time day before my period
    it sucks
    it seems to lesses chance if i keep up with my 50+ vitamins (lots of b12 and D)
    if i over use my back days before period- then chances i get a migraine
    i had c section and had spinal headaches after- i think it is related

    years back i was on rx treximent- that took migraine pain away 100%, could not drive on it, but could not drive when i had a migraine either

    i changed my diet years back- this made migraines only come with period, used to get them a few times a month

    food dyes out of diet (especially red 40) made huge difference in getting migraines

  • Menstrual migraines. Like Paxy, I love Treximet, but can't drive for the first hour or two.
