My 20 yr old daughter has severe migraines that attack at the back of her head. They can make her nauseous and disable her from her life for a day or three. She was diagnosed with Type I diabetes a couple of years ago, and has severe menstrual problems. But I have no idea if these other health issues are connected with her migraines. Help! Any ideas?
Thanks for your info/story Moxie. I am desperately looking for answers (as the medical community we've seen hasn't been able to) that can connect the dots here or figure out some viable solutions. I, too, would hate to see her have to struggle with these migraines for decades.
