Thunderstorms in my brain...

Okay, I have a health-related poll for y'all. Since a person's health is an extremely personal issue, I'm keeping the poll results private but I'd really appreciate any and all feedback. My migraines have been getting more frequent and more severe lately, and I am curious to see if there's anything I could be doing, or if any of you have some advice.

Do you know what triggers your migraines? Please answer if no. If yes, please explain.

What medications do you take (if any) to prevent/treat a migraine, and do they work (in your opinion)?

Do you have any non-medical practices that help you deal with yours?



Your participation in this poll is very much appreciated.
