    I hope you all have been well this past month

    I haven't been on much, mostly lurking around for the past few weeks. Spent alot of September in bed with migraines.

    I am now going to spend the next few days browsing around and seeing what everyone has been doing.

    I hate migraines! Do you know what triggers yours? I can usually get by if I take some meds and go to my darkened bedroom. If I don't lay down, I know I will be throwing up. I hate throwing up with a migraine!!

    I get migraines from food. Chocolate, cheese, brown rice, the complete corn family. Now taking 3 nitro pills a day for heart palpitations and get them from that. So check your foods etc.

    I had some migraines when I was younger and raising three kids.
    My oldest Granddaughter has them and all she can do is go to bed and sleep them off. Oldest Daughter has had tension headaches for many years. One Doctor finally put her on High Blood Pressure medicine. Most times that keeps them away. She doesn't have HBP but, this particular medicine has also been found to help with migraines.

    I suffer from migraines, too, so I feel your pain. Glad you're able to join us back among the living! Have fun looking around!

    I have them off and on. Could not figure what was triggering them. I knew my magnesium was low (I have monthly blood work) When the Doc increased my magnesium dose my headaches have pretty much gone as have finally my most severe muscle spasms. Hopefully it will continue because my legs are still bruised and sore from the spasms and its been 2 weeks. Headaches are not enough to put me in a dark room with the heating pad to my head anymore. Good luck on getting rid of them or at least controlling them. They are the PITS!

    September was bad for migraines. The weather is a big trigger for mine. Seems to be better this month. Hope yours are too.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    How terrible to suffer from them for an entire month. Mine are random, but regardless, none are any fun. So glad to hear you are better.

    Never had a migraine, but my mom did and had to see a neurologist to get it figured out. I hope you can get yours figured out. Good luck with it and may the rest of the year be better for you.

    My oldest daughter suffers from Migraines. Poor thing- She never had them until she was involved in a car wreck.

    I have been just crocheting and sewing up a storm for Christmas: afghans, quilts, garment sewing.

    Glad you are feeling better and can function better ..

    I suffer from migraines and my trigger is oranges in any form. I also get them if someone opens one in the room I am in. They last for days. My favourite food carrot cake is no longer for me as people keep sticking oranges in.
    Find your tricker it helps no end.

    Mine are hormonal and inherited thru my maternal side. My grandmother, mother, and 1 sister had/has them as well. When I am done with manopause they will stop. I took feverfew for years and this helped to prevent them but doesn't work now. I take meds and sleep them of in a dark room as well. or at least try to! Sept was just a really bad month for them.

    I recently heard that white willow bark is supposed to help but I haven't looked it up yet.
