I've been a migraine sufferer since I was thirteen and started having my period. I'm 21 now and I've noticed for a long time that the older I get, the more severe my migraines are. All of the doctors I've had have given me different opinions and prescribed me different medications but I never truly got the information I needed for why exactly I suffer from these migraine headaches. So what I would like to know is what is it that triggers a migraine? Is it stress? Can it be genetic? I come from a long line of migraine sufferers in my family. Is it possible that I get them just because it runs in my family? Even when I'm calm and not stressed out, I can still get migraines and for some reason I always throw up. Is that normal? I know I'm asking a lot of questions but I really need to know why do I suffer from this. I'd also like to know if there's any way I can prevent it from happening if I feel it coming.
The body and brain is telling you that something is wrong with the systems in the body - that is, they are not co-ordinated. Mainly excretory, nervous, digestive, reproductory systems.
