I had mononucleosis when I was 17, and started getting migraines a few years later.
By my early 30's, they were debilitating.
I learned to meditate and bought a program called Centerpointe, which reduced the pain a little.
A beta blocker called Atenolol helped me alot.
I used Imitrex for a while, but had poor results with it.
The August 2004 issue of Discover Magazine had an article about transcranial magnetic stimulation for migraines.
The company that is working on a device for this is still doing clinical trials.
(Heh, start saving your money to buy one of these.)
I was diagnosed with migraines and fibromyalgia.
I began to investigate Lyme Disease, and it took me several years to get a doctor to order the Western Blot test from Igenex Lab in California.
After finding out that I had Lyme, I've been reading all I can.
I saw this information about hypercoagulation:
A prominent Lyme doctor has found that 90% of his patients have hypercoagulation.
I found information about systemic enzyme therapy, and began treating myself with proteolytic enzymes.
I had dramatic results...within two weeks, I no longer woke up every day with a splitting headache.
I'm still getting headaches, but they are more easily treated.
You can also look up information about butterbur and feverfew.
As a result of my investigations, I'm beginning to think that many people with migraines may have tick borne infection as an underlying cause.
Wishing you the best,
