I am a 30 year old women who suffers daily migraines, they started when I went through puberty but have increased in frequency since I had a C-section 7 yrs ago. Before it was PMS related mostly with the occasional odd headache from chemical odor mainly bleach. I have had all the tests with no answers. The women in my family tend to have higher levels of estrogen and progesterone, migraines are also in my family history. I can not take any birth control that releases hormones or it causes constant PMS symptoms. I have 2 children and it has become normal for them and me to have a daily conversation when i pick them up from school me: i have a headache so when we get home I need you to be quiet for a while. my sons mom you always have a headache why does it matter if we are quiet they don't go away. I just want answers could the hormone levels be causing them to worsen? any other clues I don't work have very little stress and am relatively healthy otherwise. Would appreciate any responses that may help.View Thread
I have done the depression meds Don't seem to help I will try some of the other options you mentioned. The magnesium sounds like a likely culprit considering I have some of the other symptoms. Will taking a magnesium supplement interfere with my calcium supplement? I'm lactose intolerant so I need the calcium as well.View Thread
