Hi My name is Annette and I have just joined the group.

I am 37, have a 14 year old son who is my life and I work full time when my health allows. Blink

I have suffered from Migraines for as long as I can remember - it seems to be something that runs in our family as my sister and my son get them too Sad

I also have Crohn's Disease so will have good days and bad days.. Although, I try not to let any of my symptoms get in the way of my living my life..!!

I look forward to hearing from some other group members..

Bye for now Laughing

Hi Annette,

Sorry to hear you have been suffering for so long? What meds have you tried? Have you been able to find a good Headache Specialist? I am currently on Pamelor and also in the process of weaning off lamictal and verapamil since after 6 months of being on them they just weren't working for me. I am 36 years old and just started having migraines 2 years ago (which eventually turned to chronic migraines within 6 months after that). I also have trigeminal neuralgia II. My neuro found a blood vessel wrapped around a nerve in my left eye socket which gives me trouble. I can't seem to figure out where I got these migraines from since nobody in my family has them. I guess I'm the lucky one Smile Anyway, I am also a relatively new member to this site. There is another group forum that you can join to - the NDPH forum (New Daily Persistent Headache).
