My doctor suggested I keep a written diary to try to find migraine triggers. I'd like to improve on the concept and make it digital, trackable, and graphable. What would be the best method to use? [more inside]
Do you use niacin to combat migraine? Please tell me about it. [more inside]
Depression! But maybe it's hypothyroidism? Dr google tells me it might be cancer (ovarian or bowel) when I add in the other health changes I've had over the last year. Hope me? What do I ask? Who do I see? No insurance. Location and gmail inside. [more inside]

Will drinking coffee daily help my headaches, or just make them worse? [more inside]
Dear MeFites, please help me find a way to live without these constant headaches. I have had chronic daily headaches, and at least 2-3 migraines a month, for the past ten years. I have tried everything I can think of short of surgery but nothing besides taking painkillers seems to help (and those only a little these days). [more inside]
Having kids or not when you have chronic health issues: how did you decide and come to terms with it? [more inside]
I get migraines from MSG (including many "hidden sources"), meat cured with nitrates, and red wine (I think tannins or sulfites or something). As long as I avoid those triggers, I'm relatively headache-free. However, I really love red wine. I haven't had it for about 4 years, and I miss it. Are there types of wines that are better than others for keeping headaches at bay? Organic or certain types?
