    Does anyone get premenstrual migraines? Have you been able to prevent them and how? I'm taking Guai so I can't do herbal supplements. I'm taking Topamax and its cut down on the migraines a lot, especially the severity, but the PMS ones are the worst and they won't go away. Help!

    Those PMS migranes are the pits!!!! I know!!!! The only thing that helps mine is the Lorcet 10 and eating. Also resting. The more I do with them the worst they get. Just have to lie in a cool dark room and watch T.V. very low. Try to sleep after I take the Lorcet. Also Im on the pill...Yasmin. My doc put me on it everyday due to my aweful periods. I still have breakthru bleeding but its worth it to only have aperiod once in a while. Hugs...Pammy

    I get a monthly migraine which lasts three days. The pain with me is usually not as bad as how it makes me feel otherwise, sick and weak. I sympathize!

    Actually, I have one right now. I was put on Zomig for them. It's an actual migraine headache fighter. You're supposed to take it at your first sign of a migraine, but I usually try EVERYTHING ELSE first! lol. Nothing like procrastination when you're in pain. But it really helps me. Some of my migraines are so bad that I have to take 2 of the pills, but overall one helps. I hope that the info helps you. I also go to a chiro. Sometimes him realigning me helps too.

    and my dr. prescribed Zomig. It is a lifesaver. I used to spend 2 to 3 days in bed each month with half my head pounding. I get nauseous and can't stand light or loud noises. I take the Zomig as soon as I feel the migraine coming on and lay down for a couple of hours and it's gone. I suggest you ask your dr. about Zomig.

    yes, for 20 years, they seem to be getting worse with age.

    i am using imitrex spray, works better than the 100 mg pill for me. also, keteroloc helps too. midrin barely touches them.

    good luck and be sure to use lots of ice, a dark room, they are the pits.

    warm regards, fibolady
