Often before or during a migraine I will experience super human sense of smell. I can smell the scent left on someones clothing from laundry soap or smoke. I’ve even been able to smell the chlorine in the tap water which I normally didn’t notice as if I was in a public pool. It can alert me that a headache is coming with or without an aura.…

In the clinical trials, 30% of the test subjects experienced 40% fewer migraines per month compared to those who took placebo. So the Aimovig worked for roughly 1/3 of the people, and eliminated…
Is age a factor? I’m 66. My dr. that I saw for the migraines didn’t want me to keep using Maxalt or any other drug in that family. I went from being 99% sure that the Maxalt would help and rarely needed a 2nd dose or I trip to the Dr. office for an injection of nubaine for the pain. Now I’m having easily 3 a month.
