I have been using Insight Timer for about three years and love it. I mostly just use the timer to track my mediations. I love earning stars as an incentive to keep up with meditating. I have also listened to some of the guided meditations and found them very useful. Many from well known guides such as Tara Brach and any topic you can think of such…
I suffer from chronic migraines & cluster headaches. Prone to status migraines. Anyway, out of pure desperation, I’ve decided to try Migravent. All the reviews sound promising but it almost sounds too good to be true.

Insight Timer is another free app that I like. It allows you to select the amount of time you have to meditate, even search for the type of issue you have such as headache or gut or the type of meditation you want. Or if you meditate on your own as I often do, you can just set the timer and choose how you want to bring yourself out of the meditation.

I will say that they do have a 30 day money back guarantee. They did refund my money when I asked.
Thanks KyKy! I wasn’t offended at all, just an editor to the core! Hope summer is bringing relief from pollen and some of its own joys.
I have had dogs as large as Akitas and as small as Japanese Chin decide to attune themselves to my confusing presentations of migraine. They each in their own way, would not only comfort me, but alert the house and neighbors if “I was going down”. The level of focused attention was a great comfort . More importantly, their behavior would let me…
Not too bad

Tried Curable & found it worthless for me. Not worth the subscription. Might work for some, but for me was not a good fit.
Thank you for the support! I know i don’t have an issue with the ear crystals because i had had balance tests and bern assessed by an audiologist, so the eply manouvre and similar therapy won’t benefit migraine. Hope you are feeling better soon.
Thanks for the input but i know it’s definitely not meniere’s, i have had my ears tested. For a meniere’s diagnosis you need episodes of vertigo, not constant dizziness like i have, as well as hearing loss, which i don’t have. If your mother doesn’t have those aspects, then i’d question the meniere’s diagnosis even though it seems to have taken…
I’m very sorry you lost Cassius. He sounds like he was absolutely wonderful. *Hugs!!* I hope you have some pain free time to grieve properly.
Woke up with a migraine
It sounds like you have the same thing my mother in law has. It’s called Meniere’s disease. It took her forever to get diagnosed. She was diagnosed with several conditions before getting her true diagnosis including having had several mini strokes, but eventually she had a scan done of her brain, and in sorry but I can’t recall if it was an MRI or…
You are so right about others not understanding how drained you can feel. It is hard to even describe with enough detail to make them understand. It sounds like your current neurologist has some pretty solid determination and that’s awesome. Thank you for sharing your experience. Best wishes.
