  • Oh man. I would totally get this checked out. One of my good friends was suffering from migraines... after getting tested she discovered she had a brain tumor. She had an operation a few weeks ago and has to undergo radiation. Please get it checked out.

  • about 7 years ago i started having daily migraines the only time i have been able to get rid of them is when im pregnant...i asked my doctor a few years back and he said i was fine and all he did was check my eyes...excederine extra strength works for me most of the time.

  • I had migraines from age 14 until about age 55. They went away as soon as I went through menopause and I am soooooo happy. They were related to hormonal fluctuations, as most are. There are so many good things about going through menopause: No periods and no migraines!! WooHoo! My migraines would last at least a day,sometimes three or four and I would throw up occasionally. I sympathize with any of you who have them!

  • wow.... I am even taking several prevention meds tht are supposed to be helping but not anymore! ever since we moved back to Arizona where my migraines started when I was pregnant , it has gotten worse! mine really come when the pressure changes in the air or when it is going to be raining the next day.... I think I will have to be seen again by a Neurologist to be checked out again....I just hate being in bed all the time not beiing able to do anything besides just lay there for 2 hours until my meds start working...
