I see a number of us have migraines and it is considered to be part of fibro. For me, I had migraines since my teens and I've only had fibro since 2003. My daughter has migraines. My father had severe migraines. I was recently watching an episode of Mystery Diagnosis on Discovery Health Channel and it was about a woman who had migraines that were severe and very little relief. By some quirk of nature she had problems that caused her to go see a cardiologist and was diagnosed with a PFO. A PFO is a small hole in the heart. Many people have them. If you've ever been told you have a heart murmur this is what they are usually referring to and it is very hard to diagnose. What happened was people who had these holes patched reported no more migraines. The lady on mystery diagnosis was completely cured from her migraines after having her pfo patched. I researched this as we also have a history of holes in the heart on both sides of my family. I've had heart murmurs detected and so has my daughter who shares migraines with me. There is a study going on right now that is enrolling people to do a double blind study on Migraines and pfo's. I was called today and told I am a candidate. I should be traveling to houston soon to have the beginning tests to check. It is a non invasive test where they ultrasound your veins in your temples as they inject a solution that can be detected if it is passing through this hole and travels up to the left side. If you pass this test you undergo a procedure where they go through a vein into your heart and patch it. Some have reported a complete cure to their migraines. I am so excited to participate in this study as migraines plague my family and I suspect a genetic cause. The beauty of this is if it is FDA approved in 3-5 years it could drastically change life for many of us. This would mean no more anti seizure meds and no more triptans which I rely on every month. It would cure these migraines in one procedure. I wanted to share this info because it is promising new ground and applicants are needed. You can google it up and see if a study is being done and if you qualify. You haave to have at least 10 migraines a month and no more than 14. You also need to have failed at least two medications such as inderal, neurontin, topomax and others used. I hope this information helps and I'll report back if i get any benefits although if I don't it may be that I didn't recieve the patch as we don't know for a year until the study is unblinded. If you are a sham and it becomes FDA approved then the device is paid for anyway by the study.
