I was just looking up moon phases to see if it explained my occasional migraines that differ from my intracranial hypertension headaches and noticed some of the above posts sound very much like symptoms of IH I have had headaches since age 6 was ignored until 16 and finally diagnosed. I was in a car accident age 4 which I suspect triggered this. But I also get a migraine once in a while over and above the IH pain and very different pain. I was able to match tonight's migraine to nearing the full moon and I had a bad one last month nearing the full also but one in April was on the new... It would take me more time to establish if I get them on both new and full moon. I do hope none of you have IH tho.View Thread
