Is having multiple migraines each month something to worry about?

For years I have been getting one migraine every month, but since January this year I have been getting at least 3 migraines a month. Would this be anything to worry about?

Chosen Answer:

Have you been under more stress? Something different in your environment? Has anything, even something small changed in your diet, anything that could cause this? If you have a history of migraines I would not run to the doctor, but if it doesn’t get better you might want to go, just for some advice or thoughts of what you could try to do.

will i be drug tested during the investigation of an accident that i caused?

i take prescribed fioricet for migraines… and i lost the pill bottle, so i just keep them in an unmarked bottle… will i be drug tested when my allstate agent comes and sees the damage to my car, and assesses[sp?] the damage. will i need a doctors note?
its not the unmarked bottle im worried about… its that if i did have to take a DT… id come up positive for barbiturates. :/ but now that i know i wont have one… :D yay!

Chosen Answer:

no you wont be drugtested,, only if you are taken to the hospital, they will run a tox screen on you,, but the insurance company can’t do anything to you, they know accidents happen and no one can make you get a drug test w/o a court order.

I have chronic migraines and the cause is unknown, what do i do?

Yes, my girlfriend suffers from chrnoic migraines which come about just about every day. Problem is when she got a analysis, they couldn’t find anything wrong w/ her. No tumors, etc.. But she gets the headaches nevertheless. I wanted to know if there was any way to calm/remove the migraines, or just look more into what the cause could really be. Any useful information would be very much appreciated as soon as possible. Thank you for your time.

Chosen Answer:

so obviously they have done the CT and MRI scans. did they check her spinal alignment, that can cuase it, or it could be what they hought i had. its caled cluster headaches, and they cant really test fr it except by putting you on meds and seeing if they help.
mine turned out i needed glasses, but they wee migranes i was geting, so maybe get her eyes checked.
um.. obviously you are seeing a doc.
give them a undown of her general diet, stress levels, previous family medical contitions, and all that usual stuff, ask about clusters, have the spine checked.
thats the best advice i can give.
as for traeting them, cool water to drink, quiet dark room, and try nurofen migrane. doesnt do much, but takes the edge off a little bit.
some people can use those stripps you put over your head, but the last thing you want to do with a migrane is to muck around with cutting the damn things, so best for quiet, water and sleep.

oh and also make sure your GF drinks enough during the day. you can get shockers from dehydration, and they get serious

hope this helps
