*note that I am looking from responses from women who suffer migraines, and who have needed prescription meds... NOT women who suffer tension headaches- they have completely different causes.
What do you use to control/treat them?
How were you diagnosed (what root cause was discovered)?
What daily/life routine changes have you made that have helped to prevent them?
What symptoms do you typically suffer beforehand that alert you to the fact that a migraine is immanent?
I have suffered chronic migraines since early childhood, when not much was known about treatment in children (or what caused them), and as an adult I continue to suffer from a debilitating migraine every 4-8 weeks, it does NOT tend to coincide with my cycle, alcohol or nicotine use, or stress (though it CAN contribute)... but have MANY other warning signs, including tremors, loss of appetite, as well as "classic" symptoms.
