I get terrible migraines and once they start I find that it is easier to just go ahead and go to the doctor. I know going is terrible, but I know the terrible pain that migraines cause, and sometimes you just have to go. There are tons of things that cause migraines and tons of different things that can help with them. I once had a doctor tell me to quit my job and leave my husband because I couldn't get the migraines under control. I had thought he was crazy, but after years and having time to look back at the situation, I think he might have been on to something. Also, it is important to find a doctor who is really committed to helping you cure your migraines. A quick fix or them giving you something just to keep you quite is never going to get to the bottom of the issue. There was a woman who had been suffering from terrible migraines for a very long time, and the doctors would just say that it was another migraine and send her home. Luckily she finally found a doctor who really cared, and he had heard of a guy who had been doing research on a correlation between migraines and heart problems. He sent her to see him, and it turned out that she had a tiny hole in her heart that was causing her blood pressure to go haywire, and the other doctors had never seen it. She had surgery to close the hole and never had a migraine again. I think that migraines are a way for your body to tell you that there is something wrong and should really be paid attention to.
