Hello everyone,

As you know, migraines can differ from person to person. For some they may be cyclical, following the rise and fall of hormone levels, or for others they may be caused by a another condition, medication, or lifestyle habits.

How often do you have migraines? What do you do when you get them?

When and how often do you have migraines?

@Courtney_J I get mine almost daily - at least 3 times a week. I think they're definitely work/stress related since I work in front of a computer. And even more now working from home. It's almost a blessing working at home now because I can take breaks and lie down when I feel one coming on. But in normal times I basically live with a bottle of Excedrin at my side.

I had intended on searching out a neurologist before COVID hit because I can't get my normal doctor do do anything, but that's been put on the backburner for now.

I've had migraines my whole life and it wasn't until my family doctor the other day said that migraines and depression are linked that I put them together. I'm not sure which one triggers the other, but when I think about it my worst periods of depression have always come after a migraine attack. My migraines are better now that I'm on meds, but before they'd go on for weeks and would happen like every other month.
