Thread Name: BS: Migraine sufferers, advice please?
Subject: RE: BS: Migraine sufferers, advice please?
I have suffered from migraine attacks for years since I was a kid of about 5. I used to collapse with the pain. They have followed me throughout my life and then developed into cluster headaches, basically migraine in bunches. I can assure you that these are the most disruptive and unpleasant things that have ever happened to me healthwise. I have tried acupuncture ( after all the pills that is!!) with some success. Most recently I went through a period of cluster migraine 49 days every bloody day. The Doc eventually put me on Beta Blockers which appear to have had an effect and I am now migraine free.............but for how long? Mine are usually triggered by tiredness and stress, however given my work pattern and responsibilities I don't see how to avoid them, I don't get the warning signs, ho hum!!
