    I think anyone who has ever had a migraine and my husband will kill you. That helpless "I can't fix you and it's making me so sad that I can't" would probably do the trick in any case.

    I stopped birth control pills and caffeine a couple years ago and that helped tremendously. From 1 or 2 a week, with a definite for sure 3 day monster around menstruation. It cut it down to 1 a month.

    Once I switched to full Primal, I had one because I donated blood. But that's it. I have been doing really well since then. I've also started doing Crossfit and really heavy exertion used to set me off too. And sometimes orgasms would do it too. Since switching, no exertion or orgasm migraines. If I would have known that going primal would have fixed me, I would have switched a long time ago.

    i have nothing to add here except my heartfelt sympathies to all migraine sufferers. I used to get them when i was a kid & it was the worst thing ever. The barfing wasn't so bad compared to that pain right above my eyes. I always pictured a terrible little gnome in there, scraping away with a pickaxe.

    They eventually went away when i was about 10. THANK GOD! It was horrible. I hope all of you who have them find a way to make them go away.

    In my entire life of migraine headaches I've never heard the mag could help stave them off... and considering I'm one of those few migraine suffers that can't use any of the new drugs (triptains/beta blockers/preventatives) I'm stuck with excedrine migraine... I'm off to get some jigsaw mag to see if it helps ward of migraines, when I'm in alignment... chriopractic care has helped me the most w/management of my migraines!

    I've been to see chiropractors three times, and two times left with a raging migraine. So, as you can imagine, that soured me on chiros.
