I have had migraines for a long time, and have done all the things to try and stop them.  My migraines generally occur in the morning and end in the after-noon, I don't know why but I usually never get them in the evening.  Does anybody have any ideas or anything they think might work for me?  Please email me at rattyrat62@hotmail.com and put in the subject line "migraines" or something like that so I know its not junk mail.  Thanks for reading and please remember to send me if you have any ideas.

I don't know whether this will help you but my life was destroyed by migraines a while ago.  I started taking supplements called Udo's choice Ultimate Oil Blend.  These are a blend of Omega 3 and 6 Oils taken with meals.  The improvement has been dramatic.  My headaches are down to about 2 a month instead of 14 or so.
Best wishes

I've had migraines since age 8 years.  They had been daily for the last 10 years.  I tried Feverfew, DHEA, Inderal Topral XL, Corguard, Sansert, Requip, Parlodel, Lamictal, Physical Therapy, Norflex, Zanaflex, Zoloft, Verapamil, just to name some.  As a last resort I took Christian Body Female Balance, and after 3 days of taking twice the recommended amount, they stopped.  It really is a miracle.

With my clients I use two new kinds of biofeedback and have had swift and complete success in stopping current migraines and preventing their recurrance.  

The 35 year old kind of neurofeedback uses an EEG to read and train brainwaves.  Migraines tend to exist as bilateral surges at 2-5 Hz and 23-38 Hz and as low amplitude at 15-18 Hz on the left side and 12-15 in the right hemisphere.  Quieting the turbulence in these frequencies with brainwave training works to abort current pain and to prevent future attacks.  

Also, we tend to see a dull spot in the center of the forehead when using infrared photography. With biofeedback at 9-12 microns to uptrain that brain temperature, migraines symptoms resolve themselves.  This seems to be a strengthening of the brain's inhibitory functions over the brain stem-trigeminal nerve migraine generator as modulated by the autonomic nervous system.

I have had migraines from before I was 10 yrs old to now (age 70). I could be the poster boy for migraines. I have had every symptom you every heard of. Near blindness, flashing lights,paralysis of arm and hand, vomiting, etc. BUT I am free of that crap now. I have discovered celery juice. It stops a migraine in its tracks and eliminates any migraine symptom in about 30
minutes. I mean I can return to vigorous work in less than an hour. Juice up about four sticks of celery and drink it. (aprox 2 oz) THAT IS IT. If it doesn't work, take two more oz you might have drank something (coffee) or ate something (pretzel) that is
stronger than the celery. Don't give up on celery, it works every time for me.

I have had migraines since I was 10 and had spine/skull surgery for them. I had three great years w/o a migraine but shortly after my sons birth they started again. Doctors are out of every idea possible, I am currently on Methadone which helps to some extent. I have lost my job (more then one) and have no life period due to these, does anyone have any suggestions? I'm open to any idea possible since I have no more drugs to try, I have gone through EVERYTHING. Please email me at terri-ireland@new.rr.com   Thanks, Terri
