There's nothing like getting knocked flat on your butt with a migraine. Can I tell you how sick I am of these headaches? I've been getting them for years, but lately they have been coming more frequently and with much more intensity than in the past. I've been taking generic Midrin for a couple of years and it helps if I can catch the migraine from the start. The problem is, I wake up with them, and by then it's so intense that NOTHING helps me. I've tried other the counter stuff and even used "Head-On" (which actually does provide some relief). The problem is, they are all just "band-aids". I need to find out what is triggering them and what I can do long-term to keep them at bay. Our insurance at work sucks, so going to a billion different specialists isn't going to happen. I just hate how these headaches affect me. Not only do they make it hard to function in my daily life, it makes it extremely difficult at work to pay attention, they make me moody and I snap at Nathan and the kids. It's awful. I feel so NOT like myself, but I can't help it. So, if any of you have suggestions, send them my way. I'm almost to the point where I will try anything to get some relief!
