Migraines - January 22nd 2009, 05:40 PM

Anyone ever been cursed with such a horrible thing?

I am sitting here wondering why I must go through these pointless pain periods. If you have never had a migraine you will never know how bad they are. When was the last time physical pain, not mental pain made you want to kill yourself?

Dear Mr. Migraine,

Please die.

I have never had one before but I have had really bad headaches to were I cant stop crying. But Maybe you can talk to your doctor about them and tell him/her how often they come and what happens when you get them and maybe he/she will persrcibe something for them. Like I said I have never had a migrane. So i dont really know.

I get them really bad. I used to get them once a day. Luckily now,its about 3 times a week. I'm getting one right now.
I have to take 3 Excedrin except 2. Because 2 doesn't help.
(Yes,I know,its not good for you)

I take a medicine called topamax to prevent migraines. I also take a lot of supplements that my doc recommended including: a multi-vitamin, CoQ10, Vitamin B, and magnesium oxide. I also recommend that you stay hydrated and avoid foods with MSG because they can trigger migraines. I hope this helps. If the problem persists make an appointment with a neurologist.

I used to get migrains all the time. But now, I got glasses and my migrains are basically gone. I still get major headaches, but I just take an Excedrin...it helps.

I know the pain of a migraine. It's the worst. I take a medication every night called Amitriptyline to regulate my migraines because I used to get one everyday that lasted all day. I know it sucks!

Tylenol Migraine Liquid Gels work good.

Perhaps we all give the best of our hearts uncritically;
to those who hardly think about us in return.

it's not that we want to die; it's that we want to live

I get migraines. Stay out of the light, in a dark, quiet room, and sleep it off. Maybe some low background noise (music or TV). That's what I do.

If you haven't, you could speak with your GP about medication.

Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us.

I get them sometimes. I usually take 2 ibuprofen and sleep it off.

get your eye sight checked, my friend used to suffer really badly from migraines but it turned out that she needed glasses and since then they've pretty much gone. and make sure you don't have any bright lights or loud noises around. also, drink plenty of water.

..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..
