So glad to have found this gem of a discussion. I am currently 47 . Around 6 and half years ago I was in a horrendous accident in a train , quite a lot of death and horror , im sure you get the picture, I was diagnosed with PTSD and so forth. But something weird started happening on a full moon and or wwhen my period arrived i would get these bloody aweful headaches nothing worked except imigran, If i didnt /dont take the imigrain I vomit and the pain in my head is excrutiating , They say this month was a super full moon but i spent two out of three days lying in a dark room taking imigran and sleeping. Before the accident I can recall getting the occassional what could be called migraine but only once maybe twice a year now its monthly I had a shake diet for a couple of months which was nearly all fluid and no migraines, So I think hardkor is onto something . I am wondering if anyone else has had a trigger like PTSD to bring them on. I am like other posters here I know when i full moon is coming i dont have to look outside or check on the internet i start getting pain behind my eyes thats the onset sign,,,sooo over them but glad I am not the only one ...do I really have to drink water endlessly to stop them over 3 litres a day stops them ,, sorry bit all over the place just very relieved to find this spotView Thread
