They Stink!

Hello I am a migraine suffer also and I do NOT wish my worse enemy these bad boys. I get migraines that mimic a stroke.

Very scary when my symptoms first start, I only take 200mg of Advil Liquid Gel. HIGH TOLERANCE for pain and I also do NOT believe in pain meds. Had a c-section and after I only had 800 Motrin.

Anyway I started to take Aspirin 81 mg 4 times a week. No doc told me to do this but I figured heck if my migraines mimic a stroke and Aspirin helps prevent strokes then why can’t I take it?

I am 33 years old and most of the time my migraines are associated with me ovulating or right after I start to menstruate due to Estrogen dropping. I am so glad I found this site makes me feel a little more at ease.

    Migrainenogood, are you seeing a headache specialist? There are many things you can do to help yourself. You know your main trigger – that is a huge part of getting proper management. Management doesn’t have to mean loading up on handfuls of prescription meds. There are alternatives out there.

    I would also urge you to read about MOH (Medication Overuse Headache). This is when taking pain relieving drugs stop helping us and eventually cause headaches. One of the easiest ways for this to happen is by taking otc meds every day. A good headache specialist will be able to help you by diagnosing you and giving you other options that a regular physician or neurologist won’t know about.
