Welcome and so glad you found us. Us women are so sick of being told we're having Migraines because we're women. Yes it's true more men get them than women, but so what. I'm also glad you found that 02 works, as I did. Great stuff, huh? Just don't find yourself with an empty tank on a Fri. night as I have done once or twice. I Have had these monsters for 13 yrs. now. The last 8 yrs. of which I've been chronic with several each day. Some worse than others. I've tried every preventative medication, and none have worked. So I am stuck with Imitrex and 02 as abortives. The Imitrex I can only get 6 a month of which is really stupid and so I only use them when I'm in public and don't have any other way out of embarrassing myself. If you haven't already, read all the tips, tricks and other info to the left side of this page. It will really help. The best help though is knowing you're not crazy and you're not alone.
