@Lee__R thanks again for the tag. A lot of the things mentioned as migraine triggers are true and I myself have dealt with many except red wine mentioned as I don't drink alcohol for I think 4 years now. Best decision of my life to be honest and I never drank red wine anyways. Another big trigger is caffiene intake, which some may already know, but I used to be a big coffee drinker and it would cause migraines but then if you stop, it also caused migraines..kind of a no win situation. I know lack of sleep will also cause migraines as will certain medications.

I get migraines when I am dehydrated.
@Emma2190 90 I also get it when I do NOT drink caffeine. I do drink more then I should, so if I go a day wihtout it I can feel it with a headache, so I then drink some caffeine (just a little) and it goes away.... but I should stay away from it from what I read in related to my condition, but it is just hard for me to do...

@toomuchpain I hear you. Being on rebif I am supposed to cut back on coffee or caffiene of any which is hard but I'm trying. Rebif so far has kept my flares at bay but it comes with side effects as does every med unfortunately..one of those being migraines since it dehydrates you and can also effect your liver. Hope we both steer clear of too much caffiene, but even I know thats not easy. Good luck.

Thank you very much for such a detailed post. I had a migraine recently and I didn’t even think that it was so terrible. I don’t know if you can imagine what a terrible pain it is. I wake up and feel a terrible headache. In addition, I experience terrible nausea and weakness and it is impossible to stop it. The only thing that helps me is Kratom and I am infinitely glad that I learned about this plant. This is not a drug and it is absolutely legal. I would never use forbidden items. It all started with the fact that I came across a [Moderated by Community Manager for violation of community standards] and I decided to try it and it completely changed my life and helps me deal with pain.
