Thread Name: Do migraines affect your music-making?
Subject: RE: Do migraines affect your music-making?
I get partial migraines: either the headache and some nausea without the visual disturbances, or the visual disturbances with little or nothing of the other symptoms. The headaches could be suppressed with analgesics but would come back, sometimes over two or three days. For the last year or so I've been using sumatriptan. Usually HALF a tablet gets rid of the headache within half an hour, and usually it doesn't come back.

It may not work for every migraine sufferer, but you certainly should try it.
