    Default Migraines

    Does anyone else suffer? I get them but not in the typical headache way.. I just need to lay down find a black room and throw up heaps.

    Im going to see if I can get preventative treatment because its weekly now.

    Anyone else suffered like this and how did u get well?

    I used to suffer constant migraines.

    My body is very sensitive to things.
    Turns out it was the tannins in black tea that were amplifying mine. It's also found in red wine but I rarely drank that.

    Also the pill made mine a lot worse. I can.'to take the pill at all any more so have had to find another form of contraception.

    Have u done an elimination diet or are u on any medications that may cause migraines. Ones that have any affect in hormones can give u migraines.

    Big hugs migraines are absolutely horrible.

    I agree with the elimination diet. Turns out I can't have artificial sweetener, too many tomatoes or oj, the build up of acid or something gives them to me.
    Also taking medication at the very first indication one is coming.

    Agree with food triggers. Mine was wheat. I've been off it for nearly 7 years and have had maybe 4 migraines since (compared to weekly). Life changing!

    I suffer migraines. I take preventative medication twice a day every day. I take propranolol morning and night and when I get an attack I take Naramig. It took me ages to find the right drugs for me but these seems to do the trick. I only get a migraine about once every 2 months now.
    I also see a chiro every two weeks.

    I think an important step in treating migraine is getting on top of it ASAP. Assuming no allergies or history of stomach ulcer, taking a dose of Aspro clear/Disprin (that is 1-2 x 300mg tablets) with a glass of water and a snack immediately at the onset of a migraine may help them be more manageable before going down the track of preventive medication. Good luck in getting a solution.

    I used to get them a couple of times a month so I really sympathise - it's horrible. Not sure if there are different types? I had the aura, vomiting, pain. I found diet could trigger mine too - red wine, chocolate, coffee mostly but what I also found was that if I skipped a meal or got dehydrated I would have one. When I started to make sure I ate regularly - little & often - & drank lots of water I stopped getting them & touch wood they haven't come back. Wish you all the best & hope they stop.

    I suffer from them to but not weekly, I don't think I could handle that! I have not worked out what causes mine but I now wear sunglasses almost every time I go outside, even in winter, and I have gone from having them every 2-3 months to two in about 18 months (one of which was due to a tooth abscess). Some things that I have worked out help when I get one is to take painkillers with a glass of coke as soon as my vision goes funny and lay down and try and stay relaxed. I also keep something really cold on my head and neck, heat for me makes them way worse. Doing this made my last attack last one hour instead of 5-6+
