Hello again! I've been a member of SparkPeople for a few years, but drifted away. I "rejoined" in the past week and am visiting the old teams. I see there are two migraine forums, but neither seem too active right now. I thought I'd post here to say hello. I'm on day 2 of some bad migraines. Mine are almost always caused by weather changes, so it's frustrating as I can't change the weather! Every time a rainstorm or snowstorm moves through, I get a migraine. emoticon

I have found a few things that help. I take magnesium citrate (Solgar brand) 200 mg every morning. On bad migraine days I drink some coffee and take some ibuprofen. I also have prescription meds (anti-nausea) for when it's bad.

I wondered, does anyone have any foods that they find help? I don't know why, but I often crave a tuna sandwich when I have a migraine. I had one for breakfast this morning, since I woke up with a migraine!

Any hints or tips are appreciated. Hope everyone is migraine-free today!

Hello, my name is Charlotte, and I suffer from migraines. I have suffered this affliction for almost 30 years. I have been on so many different meds- some work, most don't and so many are WAY too expensive. I know the cause of mine and feel like I have reached another level of pain and experiences. I have now eliminated Gluten from my diet and over it seems to help most of my body, but the HA are still there overall. I have severe muscle tension, sinus problems and stress are huge triggers. Some foods and definitely lack of or disruptive sleep certainly contribute. I have been on the Dr. OZ 2 week Detox Plan and have been doing pretty good. My HA days are the worst because I don't want to eat and that's not good so I try to make myself eat something. That's when the desires for food that is not helpful hits me. And must I say, absolutely NO EXERCISE. Well as you probably guessed it, today was one of those days. So I am here to basically introduce myself and soon it is back to the bed after a "detox bath" (Epsom salt and baking soda with a few drops of lavender oil) and then to bed with another ice pack. Hopefully my husband will rub my neck and shoulders too. So HELLO to you all and here's hoping that you had a better day than I did and hoping that tomorrow is better for us all.

Spark: This is not as active as I would like to see it. I just signed up and said sure to be a co-owner of this group. I have learned if my migraine is manageable I will still go to the gym and exercise. I find during that time my head does not hurt as bad until I stop. So, try that if it's at a tolerable state..... I also own a facebook group for migraine support.

I have been a sufferer now for 3 years. I'm still learning about triggers. It's been a long process :-) If you need anything just give me a shout out.

Hello Team Migraine!

I do hope this is an active group. JZINICOLA, I love your Rouge avatar. Cool!

I recently joined SP after a 2 yr hiatus. I have been successfully using my fitbit to lose 28 lbs. but my last 10 have not been budging. However, in spite of my weight loss, I have not been able to workout much because of a long commute and migraines. Hopefully I will be able to find encouragement and answers here.

Thanks,
Colleen

Work hard. Rest completely.

Hello team, my name is Shanna, and I have suffered from migraines since the age of 12. I have tried all kinds of random things, prescriptions, doctors...you name it. I have two teenage daughters that have recently been officially diagnosed with migraines as well, and it has started me on a whole new mission to understand and learn all I can about new information and treatments. Nothing has ever worked for me 100%, Betty your story sounds so much like mine! But I do know that routine exercise helps, and overall health is important for blood vessel health, and I need to lose the extra pounds without making the migraines worse. Nice to meet other people who deal, struggle and understand what life is like!

Hello Betty! Glad you joined our team. I look forward to talking with you and getting to know you and know about your condition. Its a good thing that you have them under control for the most part, and you kinda know what you need to do. Glad that you found a doctor that is working with you and believes you. Hopefully some of the information and experiences you have had you can share with us. We are always learning something new from our team!

As for me, I have seen a Neurologist for the past 2 years and he seems like he don't believe me at all, and I'm not sure why. He has been no help to me at all. Just gives me info on researching my Migraines. He says research is the cure. I know a lot about my migraines being I have suffered with them since about 7th grade, I am now 30. My regular doctor don't help me either. I am in the process of trying to find a new doctor that will help me. The only thing I take for mine is Excedrin Tension headache. I have tried other prescribed preventives and other medications to make them go away, but nothing works. I have stage 4 migraines, which is the worst you can have. That's have 4 or more days with a migraine a week. I am completely unable to function most of the time because I have a migraine. I hope to eventually get my life back, and find a doctor that will help me.

Hi everyone! My name's Betty and I live in GA. I'm in my mid 30's and I've suffered from chronic headaches for as long as I can remember, at least my early teens. I was never actually diagnosed with Migraine until sometime around 2008. I know that I also have sinus headaches and tension headaches. I've finally, for the most part, figured out how to differentiate them.

I've had doctors tell me there's no reason I should have headaches. I've had them prescribe claritin, which does nothing for me, even when my sinuses are going haywire from all the pollen. I had Army doctors tell me I was just dehydrated and need to drink more water. I've had doctors tell me I have headaches because of my weight and that I don't exercise. One civilian doctor in the Army hospital ER actually gave me medicine that helped. He was the only one during my time in service that helped me with them.

I finally managed to get my sinus related headaches under control. Now I know if I get headaches it's either because I didn't take my medicine, or it's a migraine. I was taking Zyrtec-D daily but have recently switched to Allergra-D and I think I like it better. As for migraine meds, no luck so far. Just have to deal with them the best I can for the time being. At least now I am working with a doctor who believes me and is trying to help me.

Hi my name is Robyn, I have suffered from migraines since puberty. At first I thought they were tension headaches. At 23 my headaches were severe enough that I saw my doctor for something stronger. At that time I was getting migraines at least weekly, each one lasting 3 days. I do not get the classic aura (flashing lights), but I can often tell when a migraine is coming, because I cannot tolerate noise. Now I get 2-3 migraines a month, unfortunately as I still nurse a toddler at night, I limited in my medications. Over the last 8 years I have either been pregnant or nursing for a total of 6 years. In self defence i have had to learn and pay attention to my triggers and treat promptly.

Tracy I am sorry to hear how much your migraines affect you. I hope the over time you can learn more how to reduce your migraine activity.

Just do the next right Thing.
Get on the bus.

Hello, my name is Tracy. I suffer from Stage 4 Migraines. I see a Neurologist, but he doesn't do much for me. I don't no what to do or what to tell him to make him help me more than what he is doing. I have a Migraine at least 5 times a week, therefore I lay in my bed in the dark. When I have a Migraine, i have all of the side effects, nausea, sensitivity to light, smells, and noise. They are basically controlling my life at this point.

Hi Team,
My name is Amy and I believe I've been battling Migraines without knowing it. I'm 36 now with two boys, ages 5 and 3. When I was 19 I was diagnosed with epilepsy because of a staring spell when I went out of it, into like a drugged state. Since then the Neurologists have been treating me as an epileptic even though I have not had any seizures, because my EEGs come back abnormal. I've recently taken that up to a doctor out of state because everytime my hormones fluctuate once a month for about a weeks state of time my face will no numb, I have trouble talking, forming sentences, blurred vision, and I'm just generally sick of not having any answers. This other doctor has said that he believes I do not even have epilepsy (it was strange to him that I was diagnosed with that even though I'd never been seen having a seizure) however it appears migraines with auras are what is causing this problem. He is treating me with topamax and an emergency medication for when I feel the symptems start to hit. I'm a bit relieved now because at least now I feel like a path to look forward. Sorry...this turned out to be a bit long winded!

Amy, EST

Hi Team,
My name is Bob. I just got over a monster migraine today that started last night. I get them less often than I used to. Some of the things that get me into migraine mode are
flowery perfumes
the detergent aisle
if I am dehydrated
and (I found this out yesterday) red wine.
Stop by and visit my Sparkpage if you get a chance. It is still under construction. But I would love to have some new Sparkfriends to share with.
Your fellow Sparker,
Bob

Hello everyone! I have suffered from migraines since I was 32 years old. I am now 43. I have been told that the migraines are the result of genetics and hormones. My triggers include excess caffeine, any type of alcohol (so I just avoid any), stress, allergies, and weather. I too have had to be put on Topamax and have dealt with some hair loss, but not as severe as APPLESNOB. I am sorry to hear about that. I have had no weight loss on topamax, but I think I have gained since I have been on it. I have not tried acupuncture, but might be willing to give it a try. I have also heard that feverfew works, but have not purchased any yet. I am planning on trying it out. I also take the imitrex injections and they work well. I am working on losing weight and getting healthy.

Hi! I had my first migraine at age 19, and it has been a long 27 year journey since then. My migraines seem to have peaks and valleys in terms of their frequency and intensity. Some years have been more difficult than others. Each of my four pregnancies provided me with a respite from migraines, which just like my beautiful daughters and son, was a wonderful gift. But there have been other periods of time in which I have suffered terribly with horrific pain several times in a week. I've tried many medications over the years. Imitrex injections worked the best for me. A year and a half ago, I needed to add a daily medication to my migraine arsenal because of high frequency. The doc chose Topamax. At first, I thought it was a wonder drug since my migraines were greatly reduced AND I lost weight while on it (and very quickly). However, it came with a terrible price tag and that was that I lost about half of my hair and most of my eyebrows. I am still recovering from my hair loss...and the weight came right back on after getting off the Topamax. Recently, I decided to start thinking outside of the box. I decided to see an acupuncturist. I am happy to tell you that in three weeks, I haven't had a single migraine. It is nothing short of amazing to me. I don't understand it, but I hope it continues to work. I am currently working on losing weight and finding the most natural ways possible to make myself more healthy.

Hi fellow migraine sufferers - I am fairly new to Sparkpeople, but have been experiencing migraines for most of my life (I'm 49) I inherited this lovely trait from my mother and have unfortunately passed it on to my oldest son.(so far only 1 out of 3 is showing signs)
Triggers for me are many - skipping meals, strong scents, msg, red wine, weather and certain foods especially peanuts and old cheeses. I also have daily tension headaches due to neck and shoulder pain which is due to poor posture - which of course gets aggravated by bad ergonomics at work and stress. (The little voice inside my head is always telling me to keep my shoulders back but I never listen)
I look forward to chatting with people and hearing any suggestions that you may have re. controlling headaches

Hello Deb and welcome to the team!! That's interesting about the pork that's one I'd never heard and it makes me wonder if it might trigger migraines for me. I don't eat pork often but still makes me curios. Smells, MSG, stress, etc are also triggers for me so I understand those. Glad to hear that you are getting fewer now though I know that 5 to 10 are still alot to deal with monthly. Look forward to chatting!!

Hi! My name is Deb and I am the mother of 2 teens. My daughter is 17 and my son is 15. My hubby and I will be married 20 years this August.

I was first diagnosed with Migraines as a teen. We could not understand why I was getting really bad headaches after eating pork! Well 1 in 100 migraine sufferers get them from pork! It has been almost 30 years since I last enjoyed a roast pork or a pork chop! (And my daughter has the same trigger). There are also several other triggers: smells (I supply the hand cream for my complete department... all unscented), weather (snow, rain...), foods (MSG, aspartame), stress among a few.

I use to take caffeine pills on a daily basis, but started drinking coffee. 2 a day does the trick~ When I do get a migraine, a dark quiet room with my Migranal or Imatex nasal spay usually does the trick. I am at the point when I get 5 to 10 a month (Which is a great improvement).

Hello, my name is beverly, I am 52. I am an RN, work in a Nursing home, 11-7, can't handle the business and noise of day shift. I have had migraines since I was a teenager but have worsened over the years. In the past few years I have had worsening symptoms especially to perfumes and smells. This last year I had severe vertigo which was traced to my migraines and was off work for 2 1/2 months. I am now on a restricted diet also, found I can't eat quite a few foods that I didn't realize was a problem. I am on 3 daily meds to control migraines plus Imitrex and Frova as needed. I am trying to get my weight down and exercise , drink fluids as i should. I joined the migraine team feeling this might give me more support and encouragement knowing what i am going through. At the present time, my migraines have been decreased to 1-2 a week or less which is a big improvement.

Hello!!
I'm Kelly, a mom to a 14 yr old and 13 yr old. My hubby is in the Army and we have are currently in Washington. I began having migraines at age 11, however only in the last few years have they really altered the way I've had to live my life. But, there is light I am seeing a great neurologist who is caring and kind.
As far as my weight, oh man where do I begin...
In 2003 I weighed 220 and climbing stairs hurt, I was so use to taking care of everyone else I had forgotten I even existed. I began with what I liked which was dancing with my kids, which turned into the elliptical at the gym,then the tread mill and weight lifting. In 2009 I weighed in a 139 and ran a half marathon despite work, and health issues. I've gained some weight since then I'm a little frustrated I miss my friends back home but I'm setting goals again:) P.S. I couldn't help notice you ladies are from KY I was actually born there!

*Waves* Hey there, everyone!

My name is Christina. I'm married to an absolutely wonderful man, and we have two daughters, ages 9 and 14 months. Kevinsbebe up there is my cousin, putting up with me in the same town that she lives in here in Kentucky. :) I have had migraine headaches since I was nine; bad enough to leave me throwing up repeatedly from them. But for a couple of years it went away, coming back when I started having issues with a Chiari malformation acting up again, which turned out to be the the cause of my headaches.

I'm addicted to reading (although my to-be-read pile is nowhere near the size of Chelli's up there (PS, Chelli, if you read "My Reading Life" or "Room" before me, please let me know if they were worth it. I am dying to check them out.) :) Music is a passion, as well as the martial arts, Zumba, and writing, something I hope to make a living at and appear to be on the right road to doing so, considering I'm hopefully starting my first writing job at the start of the year working in product placement for a Gaming Company. :)

My heaviest weight was after I had my second child; 230 LBS. I have lost 16 pounds so far since joining sparkpeople. I lose by watching my calorie count, working out at either the gym, the dojang, and doing Zumba either by DVD, youtube, classes at the gym, or the PS3 Move.

Hello everyone! Just wanted to start an introduction thread. Please feel free to introduce yourself no matter how long you've been a part of it!

I'll start off:

Hello my name is Michelle. I'm a 31 year old Mom of three kids ages 13, 8, and 6. I'm married to Kevin and we live in Kentucky. I work as a Medical Assistant in a OB/Gyn office. I have suffered from migraines since I was about 22 years old and had headaches long before that just wasn't diagnosed till I was 22.

The past year my migraines have steadily gotten worse and I've had to undergo physical therapy and up my medications for them. My doctor has told me if I have another severe one soon I'll have to go on daily medications soon.

I love to read, write, scrapbook, and much more. Since we are a Spark team I'll tell you all about my weight loss journey. I've been battling my weight since I got pregnant with my first child over 13 years ago. The past 3 years I've lost over 50 lbs but have regained about 9 lbs back this month which is depressing to say the least. LOL At my heaviest I was about 260 lbs and my goal is 165 lbs. To lose weight I watch calories and exercise.

I look forward to getting to know you all!

Hugs and smiles,
Michelle
