That is all.

    I feel for you. My father used to get such brutal migraines that my mom had to practically close the house down. He’d lie in bed in a darkened room with an ice pack on his head and we’d tiptoe around all evening. It was the only time we never fought. I’ve had a few myself. Hope you feel better.

    My brother started getting them at 4. Sometimes they would get so bad that he would vomit. His trigger was certain preservatives in foods. After years of stumbling about searching for a solution, we found co q 10 works miracles. Now he’s down to 1 every 2 months, and they are rather mild.

    Paul and I both suffer. His are held back by a daily dose of Topamax. I don’t get them as much now that I’m away from the station, but I have been getting nosebleeds. Yuck.

    Relpax- its a miracle. I get them too; visual disturbances, nausea and vomiting- the whole nine yards. I am not sure my doctor believed me until I actually got one the morning I last had an appointment with her. I had to leave the room a couple of times to puke. Now I have relpax and something for the nausea- both help tremendously.

    I started getting migraines in my early teens. Mine have always been mild (comparatively) … I get visual distortion followed by the grinding headache. I’ve been fortunate in that I don’t have any nausea, vomiting or issues with light, noise or smells. As near as I can tell, when I have them (and they are sporadic), they seem to be triggered by stress or a release from stress. Interestingly enough, I discovered that if I take sufficient advil (ibuprofen) as soon as the visual distortion starts, it short circuits the headache.

    Hope yours are responsive to some kind of medication. Even with a mild version, I understand how miserable you must have been.
