Looking forward to chatting to others who experience chronic migraine for help, support and advice on how to best cope with the pain and strategies to help prevent them but still have some fun in life  :):):)

    Hi @honeyJ welcome!
    In the few short days I've been on here I've received more relevant advice and support than I have from anywhere else. You've come to the right place!
    I'm really struggling right now with chronic migraine. It's a truly difficult time. Everyone's experience is different.

    Hi I’ve been having really bad migraines for about 30 years now and there never seems to be an answer to controling them, when if feel one coming on ( and it all depends on which side of my head it is) i take a tablet or if it’s really bad i have one of my lnjections. I don’t know anyway of controlling them but if anyone has answeres that be good. NC

    Hi everyone. I can totally sympathise with Migraine sufferers. I've had them all my life (in 52 now) but for the last 8 years they have been constant along with cluster headaches! After attending Neurology for 3 years and trying every medication available I was finally referred for BOTOX injections. Every three months, they do help but haven't taken them away altogether. I've had 3 rounds so far and I have to say the last round hasn't helped much at all.... I suffer with other illnesses to, Fibro, JHD, SAI, Hypothyroidism to name a few.... I've been in bed most of this week and have to say sometimes life sucks. Currently waiting to attend Neurology to see if I have MS. Does anyone have MS on here, I'd really like some more info...... #frustrated #fedup......
