Going On 50 Years of Migraines. . .

The longest I've gone without a migraine is one year. I've seen many doctors and tried many preventative and abortive medicines without success. Somewhere I've ended up in the hospital with serious side effects -- i.e. respiratory arrest. After having two episodes last week, I'm going to start looking into the new preventative drugs to see what I may tolerate.

I'm new to this site and hoping to learn from others who have conquered migraine.
