    I admit it...he does. I guess its just a good thing it doesn't happen often. DD21 has been having some headaches...ones that have her rolling on the bed in tears. I'm thinking migraines. BIG family history of them on my side. My mother, one of my sisters, and my niece have them. he insists that it is sinus and as soon as I walked out of the room he called his mother and his sister to see if they agreed with him. grrr. Once his sister said it could be migraines THEN he said maybe so. and yes he knows I'm ticked at him. He still insists that otc things like tylenol will help and it does no good to tell him we've tried that already. I know what the problem is.....my mother turns into a stark raving crazy person when she has a migraine and he's afraid dd will be the same. That and since we talked about me the other night I am suddenly incapable of knowing whats going on.

    Caffeine... and a heating pad on the forehead or neck.. or cold towels ( everyone is different)

    Be sure and check with a doc just to make sure that is what is going on

    what does the doctor say?
    I had migraines really bad (knife stabbing in my temple, sick, etc) and dr ran all kinds of tests to make sure it was "just" migraine

    Take her to the Dr.,please....Migraines are horrid, but not knowing for sure what is causing it is not good. I worked with a young lady that had horrid migraines everyday...only it wasn't just a migraine...this girl had a tumor. PLease get it checked out...

    My poor daughter has them and begin when she was five years old. Her precious daughter did the same. My maw inlaw, ditto. It's a curse, mee-trip-toe-leen or any of the other drugs do not stop it, just dulls the edge of the blade. They've had scans and tests......still. I pray for an end to that horrible difficulty for everyone. Blessings to all of you, Ruth

    My DD#3 gets them too. Taking Ibuprophen makes it worse because though it would give her some relief, she would get rebound headaches with it.
    Megs needs to go lie down in a quiet dark room for a while!!
    Sometimes (ok, more than sometimes) guys are clueless or they are in deep denial about some things.

    I had them for several years during my younger days. Medical dr. gave me lots of pain pills. Finally went to a chiropractor and he got rid of them after a few visits.... :D

    This may sound silly but give her a piece of chocolate and a cup of coffee. The caffeine from both will open up the vessels in the brain and help ease the migraine and make it more bareable.

    My youngest DD has them. She's on meds to try to prevent them. She has to see the dr every now and them to see how she's doing. We call them sick headaches. Get her to the dr asap. It may take awhile to find the right meds to help her, but for us it was worth it. My DD is 17.

    I get hormonal migraines. A couple of things help. She may benefit from Exedrin. It is the only thing that helps me. I've tried Imitrex, but it made me feel more ill than the actual migraine did. Honestly, the one thing that has really helped is that I had Mirena placed after my son was born. Since it controls the hormonal up and down , not nearly as many migraines. Unfortunately, they recommend it only if you've already had kids! Hope you can figure out her triggers and can minimize the headaches for her!

    I had terrible headaches that my monster-in-law kept saying were sinus. When I began losing vision, I went to eye doctor. He did MRI and found a brain tumor! They removed the tumor, now I have different headaches. See a doctor, maybe 2!

    well she has been to the doctor recently...as in the last few weeks and told them about the headaches...they didn't think much about it. She had a physical for school. Bloodwork and everything. She's on the pill so hormone surges should be controlled? We're trying some cayenne now to see if that helps. I think though that the chiro is the next thing she needs to pursue. She says she has felt this headache coming for a week. And yes I know they are horrible to deal with.

    Migraines have multiple sources, but make sure it's a migraine that DD is having. The doctor is the best place for advice and meds; they have some that can be taken to prevent migraines. Also, if you can, see a chiropractor. Good luck and yes, GRRR to your husband, his mom, and his sister.

    My coworker can't take any hormonal type meds (ie birth control) of any kind because they increase the frequency and intensity of her migranes. So you might want to ask the doctor about this possibility as well.

    Here's some good information on headaches. I get debilitating migraines and am allergic to "triptans" which cuts out a lot of medications available. Finding triggers can be as important as anything else. OTC medications never help me but some actually make the pain worse.

    http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/e...cle/000709.htm

    I hope this helps with at least trying to tell what type of headache she has. If she goes to sleep and wakes up with her headache, you probably need to talk to your doctor. Prolonged migraines are very debilitating and can really interfere with her daily life.

    She needs to see a specialist. For a headache to be that severe she needs pain management. There are new treatments and meds available. A general MD, or GYN are not Drs. to go to about migraines, they know enough to refer you to a a Dr. that does.

    I take a propranolol every day to help prevent migraines. Take her to the doctor people do not realize that migraines are not just a headache!!

    These kinds of headaches are horrible. Years ago when I first started having them, DH said he wouldn't let a little thing like a headache stop him. I told him I hoped he never had to experience one, if he did he'd understand. It wasn't long afterward that he started getting cluster migraines. Granted, I've been told they are even worse and once the cycle begins it is hard to stop. But, they weren't such a little thing anymore once he experienced them.

    I too take propanolol and haven't had one in a long long time. I feel for your daughter, hope she feels better soon.

    My wife just started having migraines again after a 30 year break from them. I cant remember what the medication he gave is called but they are $32.41 a pill!! :shock: :shock: :shock:

    The Neurologist told her to take one if she feels on coming on and if it does not go away then take another one. They melt in your mouth and work in less than 10 minutes my wife said. But they tend to make her sleepy.

    If you want me to get the name of the medication I will.
