    Ugh, I have sympathy for you both.:hug::


    I used to get migraines so bad when I was in elementary school that I would just start crying in class because I couldn't stand the pain. Once I even passed out!

    What I take for migraines, even though it may sound silly, is Childrens Motrin. I've taken it since I was in elementary school and it still works well. :greenpbl:

    ...about photography. Maybe photographers get migraines.

    I'm one of the fairly rare males that get migraines, have always had them as a kid. I take a daily medication (been through many till I found the one that works) that virtually eliminates them.

    If you're female and if they're tied to your cycles, sometimes you just have to get a good painkiller. That's not always the case, so see a neurologist. Keep a good map (calendar) of when you go to bed, get up, what you eat, what you drink, what you smoke, when you cycle and when you have a migraine. Do this for a month and give it to a doctor, it will go a long way to helping find the trigger.

    I don't get them but my wife does every now and then. I agree they suck. I don't have to experience that pain to know they hurt.

    I used to get them a lot, but now, maybe a few times a year and no where near as rough as they used to be. Once I got my back and eyes fixed, we had found that the back problems contributed to the migrains.
    My ex suffers from migrains a lot and is on special meds to prevent it. Hers were caused from chemical imbalances, which also caused depression. And I thought that was all my fault. :lmao:

    If ya can....check out your Doc. It could be something really simple that causes them.

    All the best.
