Elavil helpful for migraines?

I get migraines that are interfering w/ my day-to-day functioning (first grade teacher--enough said). While they are not the kind where I need to be in a dark silent room, they are extremely persistent and only respond to the triptans (to which they respond beautifully). However, the triptans are no good when you have to take them several times a week. I was on Topamax and thought it was working at first, but then realized it totally was not working at all...

Will the Mirena IUD make my brain explode?

I'm on track to getting the Mirena IUD within the next month or so, because I have insanely heavy periods. I know lots of people who have it and love it, but I have one worry -- I get migraines with aura, and am concerned that the Mirena might makes them worse. A bit more detail inside... [more inside]

Need a good migraine doc in Seattle!

Asking for my wife. She's had pretty frequent migraines most of her life, but in the last few years, they've become more frequent and resistant to her usual meds (mainly Imatrex). Both her regular doc and a neurologist reference recently retired, so I thought I'd cast the net to the crowd here. Have you had a good experience with an individual doctor or clinic in the Seattle area specializing in migraines? Huge thanks from both me and my wife for any leads.

How to get up when you wake up

My mother is trying a number of tactics to help with debilitating chronic migraines (occurring multiple times weekly). She's been told that getting out of bed immediately on waking has reduced the occurrence of migraines in some other sufferers. This is proving a difficult thing to implement. Hive, how would you motivate yourself to get out of your cosy cosy bed? [more inside]

you'd probably poke it too

My fiance poked at a squishy bump in his forehead about two days ago; it squished and sort of dispersed, he said, and now his head has hurt really bad ever since. What could this have been, and do we need to be concerned now? [more inside]

Menstrual Migraine Filter

I've had brain surgery that involved cutting out a quarter-size hole in my skull and peeling back the dura-matter and layers of other tissues, drilling through bones connected to my ear, then putting everything back with a titanium plate. The surgeon forgot to order pain meds. and I was in misery for two hours before the first shot. This was NOTHING compared to the migraine I barely endured two days ago. Had we a gun in the house I would most certainly not be here. [more inside]

Is biofeedback a joke?

My 2 1/2 year old gets migraines. The only cause we can discern is chocolate but have tried other elimination diets to no avail. Someone suggested biofeedback (a machine that can tell you what your body needs to heal) - and this will help determine the cause(s). I am very skeptical. Would you give it a try? The test is ~$150.

Daily headaches & migraines - how can I be free of them??

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]
