My head

First off I’m a man so I know I’m in the minority! Migraines run on both sides of my family! I get the bad ones and I get the little ones. Personally I find the little ones harder to get rid of…

    Bravo to you, Damon, for posting. My dad and all 3 of his brothers suffered terribly with migraines. You can tell anyone who asks that there are plenty of men who suffer with this illness, too.

    Damon,
    I’m always excited to see a guy on the site! While you are in the minority, all the same info applies (except the menstrual migraines…).

    Having headaches run on BOTH sides of your family is rough. What’s the one thing you’ve found that helps you the most?

    44 years suffering. I will be 48 in 2 weeks. a man just cured my migraines, NO MEDS, NO SURGERY. he changed my bite. I have a temporary orthodic. should have had 3 episodes this week…. not even ONE inkling of pressure. I get them 5-7 days each month. or should I say DID… when it is time for the temp to be removed we will determine the best way to correct my bite and my life will be migraine free. all the meds I ever tried had the same symptoms of the migraine. light and sound sensitivity, confusion, nausea and vomiting, exhaustion. I’m getting my life back. this video link here is regarding how the jaw has sooo much influence on the body. this is what made me decide to try this treatment. Just go to leadingdentist.com and it appears on the home page….. it is in the top left corner and you can click on and watch it on utube too. a guy draws caricatures thru most of it. enjoy 🙂

    Hi, Karen! Glad you were able to fix your migraine trouble with an orthodontic. My very first attempt to “tame the beast” was with one, but, unfortunately, it did not help me. Could be because I have such strong Migraine genes in both sides of my family. Wish you the best!

    Karen,
    There is definitely a connection between Migraines and orthodontics. I’m really excited for you that you’ve figured out what your trigger is! For anyone else wanting to know more info on dental issues and Migraine, here is a link to more info. Thanks for sharing, Karen!
