Janacourtney, luckily there are some anti-seizure meds that can sometimes help Migraine patients. There are many different choices, and it may be a problem with which medication your husband is currently prescribed. Additionally, it can take weeks or months for these medicines to take effect and for side effects to have a chance to minimize. Many patients eventually have to make a choice between a foggy brain or a migrainey brain. It's a sad fact that we don't yet have very good ways to prevent our Migraine attacks...

In '92 I was hit in the head several times in one night & then a month later a jug fell on my head. Prior to that I never had migraines, I never even had a headache. Since then I struggle with migraines all the time. Plus a few car accidents. I've had whiplash, concussions,pulled ligaments in my neck & my spine pushed down a couple inches. I am pretty certain this combination is what gave me my migraines. It has sure been a learning experience.

Krista, this is a good case for needing a headache specialist. It's very probable that you will need different kinds of treatments that a Migraineur who has not had trauma or cervicogenic issues like you've mentioned here. Migraine treatment is different than treatment for those other types of headaches...
