Family History of Migraines

Hi my name is Jessica and I have been suffering from migraines since I was 16. I am now 33.

My mother and grandmother both get them severely. I typically only get them around my period but if I am around someone with perfume or cigarettes, that is an instant trigger. Also if I drink alcohol. I take Excedrin and Imitrex.

Last year when I was pregnant, I got them SO bad and SO frequently. And of course I couldn't take anything. I suffered for 9 month :(
I am curious to try acupuncture. Massages also work well.
