    Just curious if any of you have a migraine headache everyday when you wake up? I know it's not normal, but I am wondering if I am having a REALLY bad flare up because I have them everyday or is it normal for us to have them everyday? I need to see a chiro, and it helps temp. but then they come back. Thanks for your time.

    I had such headaches for months on end, and still get them for days, sometime two weeks now. They are the pain I hate most, painkillers don't help in my case.

    yes i do have them daily. I have been getting treatment for them in the past few months because i can't bare with the fibro pain and the migraines too. It is more then we can handle sometimes i feel. Anyway, i have been placed on the beta blockers which are blood pressure meds that are to help the intensity and the duration of the migraines. I have had to begin a migraine journal also which is not too good. But so you know this is something that should be brought to the attention of your doctor. I went with treatment with the Chiro for quite sometime too until he finally said look, I can put you back together but in a day or two you have fallen apart. So, i have been experimenting with my Doc on the migraine meds and such for them. That is what I would recommend you do. Take care and good luck.

    Lumediluna,
    I'm so sorry that you are having to deal with daily headaches.

    I also suffer from daily headaches as well as migraines. I have been dealing with migraines since I was a teenager and I'm now 33.They have became worse as I have gotten older.

    I have been going to a neurologist for years. I was just diagnosed with Fibro on May 9th 2002.

    I don't know if it's normal to have some sort of headache everyday. Sorry I cant help you with that question I just wanted to let you know you are not alone with having daily headaches or a migraine every day.

    but lots of us do. Have you tried to get treatment from anyone else but your chiro? I use chiro also but feel this headache problem is beyond chiro.

    ....and so did my Brother. We both have auto-immune diseases. Then I started taking "Feverfew". I started on 3 caps a day for a month, then backed down to one a day. I get headaches, brought on by sinus/allergies, but haven't had a migraine in almost a year now.

    My Brother hasn't gotten hardly any migraines since starting on Feverfew.

    "Feverfew" is a herb. You can get it in cap form at Wal-Mart.

    It's worth a try if it helps you.
