same here. I haven't had a severe one in several months. Seasonal allergies, my menstrual cycle and if I drink beer typically trigger them.

My Dr had to place me on birth control to help reduce my migraines. It helped for a good amount of time but sometime in the past 2 years my body started to reject the birth control pills.

I didn't know there was a shot ! I'll have to ask the Dr...

My friends think I am a beer snob because I will not drink Bud Light, Budweiser, Miller Light because those beers trigger the migraines. I can drink Sam Adams(the only American beer), Guinness, Newcastle and pretty much any import with no side effects. Thankfully I have not had any reactions to wine.

I wonder what it is in the Bud Light, Budweiser, and Miller light that causes you and I such pain!

there is also a nasal spray. It would be worth talking to your Dr. about the alternatives.

I think I'd prefer nasal spray then giving myself a shot....

Thank You

See this is why I think it is good to talk about Migraines with others. You never know what you will find out.

My mom used to say she divorced her migraine.

But, really she did say that her's went away (unless she was under major stress) when she was perscribed a medication (various forms of digitalis) for her heart failure.

And pretty much the only time I had migraines regularly was when my depression was untreated. Once I got treatment for that they dissipated.

I get them, and am not entirely sure what triggers mine. I do know the pill used to have some effect as when I was on it I'd get probably the worst of my life. After I stopped the pill, they halved and then suddenly and mysteriously disappeared after another year or 2. They went for about 18 months-2 years but have returned again. The most ineffectual drug Ive ever had was Cafergot. Now I live on Panadeine Forte and Maxolon. NOthing really works though. Panadeine Forte just knocks you out and Maxolon just stop the vomitting.
