Does anyone else here get them? Ugh my mom and grandmother both had them and so do I. :( I wouldn't wish them on my worst enemy.

    I have had them since I was 6. They suck. I hate them. and my SO has NEVER had one so he doesn't understand. The best thing I have found for them Is Lavender Oil and Camomile tea, dropped into a hot bath. Guided meditation helps too.(listen to the program before you have a migraine and then think back on it during an episode. It helps to relax your brain waves.

    I had them from the time I was 13 till I was 26. After I had my first daughter I have on,y had 4 in the last 8 years. They suck. I have a ridiculous list of meds that can help and other things. You need to find out what the cause is. For me it was hormones

    Yep me, my mom, my dad, my twin, two aunts, grandma, cousins, etc. It's genetic.

    Yea I've been getting them since I was 13. And now they seem to be getting worse lasting longer and more often. I get them about twice a month and they last all day and night NOTHING I do helps or makes them go away

     Not by the definition of migraine, no. But I am hypoglycemic and tend to get pretty bad headaches from time to time. My mom used to get migraines and she'd be out of commission for days when they struck.

    Caffeine is terrible for migraines sufferers..... Avoid it especially OTC meds with it in there
