Im at a loss...my teenage daughter is 16 years old. She suffers from migrains and has seen a neurologist who has prescribed Imdur. She doesn't like taking it because it makes her tired and "out of it". So we are trying to monitor her food and liquid intake to find triggers for this. On top of that she also is a light sleeper...to the point she says she lays there and hears her heart beating and this keeps her awake too. Part of my thinks that if she slept regularly this might help with the headache situation. I am going to buy a a white noise machine to see if this helps at all. My next step is a sleep specialist. Does anyone have any experience with this or have any suggestions?View Thread
