  • i ued to like clock work day or two before my period
    i stopped eatng anything with LAKE DYES
    red #40, Yellow #5, and blue #1 most common
    my daughter has reaction to these or naturally i stopped to

  • Oddly I only get them once every few years... but they're excruciating. I like some of these suggestions, and may try them the next time I get a really bad one. Slurred speech and all.

  • I find that i stopped waking up with them if i drank chamomile tea with ginger before bed.....i dont know why it works. maybe because i sleep better.

  • Since the topamax and PT, not often. But I went without the PT for a few weeks, and had them more often then not. I've had them for 10 days to 2 weeks before. Up to 3 weeks at a time. Not extremely bad, but they just don't go away.
