The Significance of Migraine & Headache Disorders

How has living with migraine or a headache disorder impacted you over the past 10 years? What should others who are new to migraine or are looking for support know about living with migraine or a headache disorder?

  1. have any of you tried lighting products for your migraines? What have you tried? Have you tried https://liberlight.com/migraine-desk-lamp/

    1. Had my first migraine in a long time last night. Silence and darkness are my only relief.

      1. Ugh. It is always awful when the migraine monster comes to call, ajar2112. How are you feeling today? I hope your symptoms have begun to ease for you. Please know we are here to listen anytime you need support. Wishing you a gentle day. ~Allyson (Migraine.com team)

      2. Dark room and pure silence is a must for me. I hate living with Migraines and Fibromyalgia, it takes away your whole life.

    2. I tend to wake up with migraines and it is often unexpected and can really disrupt my day. I do find that maintaining healthy eating practices (especially limiting sugar) and exercising keeps them limited in number!

      1. I sometimes get migraines that wake me up like that and I am unable to go back to sleep. I used to put on peaceful music (stereo doesn't work now) and meditate sometimes that would help.

      2. I got a mouth guard to prevent grinding my teeth, and my wake-up migraines stopped almost completely. Good Luck.

    3. Keeping track of triggers and symptoms through an app (or however else works for you) can help get a better handle on your migraines.
