Migraineurs Support Group

A place for migraineurs to discuss anything and everything related to migraines. Topic suggestions: Think of this as a support group for migraineurs. Reach out to group members when ever you need support. Give your support to fellow migraineurs. You, as a migraineur yourself, probably have a wealth of knowledge to share with others. The knowledge that you have could vastly improve the quality of life for another group member. Share share share! Discuss your current acute and preventative treatment plans. Ask others about their current acute and preventative treatment plans. Discuss past acute and preventative treatment plans as well... we can always learn something from what didn't work! Discuss your own personal tips and tricks for lessening the severity of acute migraine attacks. Post about your upcoming GP or Neurologist appointments. Ask other group members questions about what to expect and suggestions on how to prepare. Update fellow group members on your progress... both on set backs (so that we can provide support, suggestions and hope!) and on successes (so that we can congratulate you and so that you can provide other group members with hope!).

I'm in the middle of a bad migraine right now. Even tho it's only into the second day, it's really strong, and I'm having trouble tracking thoughts. Yesterday, however, it seemed like my hearing was coming in and out of focus, if that ma...

Everything's distorted today. I woke up wanting to bash my head against the wall because of the pain and it's gone downhill from there. Now I'm doing one of those almost-out-of-body experiences which freak me out so much. Everything seem...

I checked the trackers that MedHelp offers, and I don't see a way of tracking the weather and how it interacts with my migraines and moods. My mom recommended just using the notes and filling in the data myself each day, but I was wonder...

Sometimes our health seems overwhelming, so maybe we can get a boost by thinking of some great things in our lives. Maybe we can just let go and have fun with this. :)

First off, let me say that I love my neuro. He's awesome, very understanding, willing to give me his best, etc. The only problem is that he's really hesitant to give me any Rxs for pain meds. I can get tramadol from him, but that's about...
