Just a quick thought.....

One would think that by now, if they can vaccinate against all manner of childhood diseases that used to cripple, maim and kill --- and if they can now vaccinate against a strain of virus that can be a cause of cancer ........

Just when are they going to make a vaccine for migraines?

I am truly blessed not to have severe migraines that make me nauseous and knock me cold for hours or days on end. But I seem to have ones that just remain at a level 4-6 .... just irritating enough that they never fully develop and don't seem to ever fully go away. As the weather gets warmer, my headaches will either worsen or become more frequent. Something about the heat must be a trigger. That's the one nice thing about winter; I don't get nearly as many of these PITA headaches.

As much as Excedrin Migraine helps, I know that it's reaching a point where it will no longer be enough. I'm not looking forward to the day I go for testing. I know it's going to happen. I'd just like to postpone it as long as possible.

Out, out damn headache!

I, for one, think a Migraine Vaccine would be fantastic. I can't even imagine how much better my life would have been...

That low level, not too bad, but far from feeling good is horrible! Sometimes I'd almost rather have a day or two of feeling horrible than 10 of feeling so-so!

Could it be allergies? Have you been allergy tested? Even if you haven't try somy Zyrtec or Claritin - I know I get a bad headache if I go off my zyrtec. Esp makes me think allergies b/c it's a low grade continuous misery!

Hope it goes away soon!
