Atleast once a week or more, I keep getting really bad migraines that are in the back of my head, by my temples. I will take Tylenol, Goody's headache powder, ect. and none of those work. They will last anywhere from 8 hours to 20 hours. I do wear contacts and glasses and had my last exam 7 months ago. My husband says I don't drink enough water, but I drink 5 bottles a day and I don't drink anything but water. Does anyone know why I keep getting these? Thanks!

  • Certain things can trigger migraines. It is different for everyone, but some common causes are: wine, chocolate, nuts. I would try and think if there seems to be one thing triggering it. If you can't figure it out, then I would go see a doctor. They can perscribe medication that will help.

  • sometimes proccessed meat like lunch meat, hotdogs, etc... with preservitives in them can trigger migrains. also certian kind of food dyes, there are many triggers. make a docters appt. and start wrighting down everything you eat or drink and how many hours you sleep by doing this it will make it easier to figure out whats causing them.
