Old Man Migraines
Your stories have been largely about women, teens or children. I think that it should be remembered that many men also have migraines.
I am in my sixties. I have had migraines since I was 7 or 8. For the first 30 years or so, my head pain was attributed to overworking or mental problems. I took Tylenol so much that I can not take it because it rebounds. Also I cannot take any naproxen, ibupropron, or aspirin, because taking so much of it earlier has damaged my kidneys.
It was ironically a good day when I finally got diagnosed as having migraines. I began taking the prescription medication which helped. Also I have tried many of the medications that prevent them, but I have had bad complications from them. The number of migraines I have each month have increased and now I have migraines about 2/3 of each month.
I understand the unique problems of women with migraines, but please do not forget that men get them too.
