Hi, I suffer chronic migraines. I used to only have hormonal migraines and weather related headaches, Now at 43 with Michigan's crazy weather patterns I"m having more migraines. I do exercise a few times a week. I walk and swim. I'd like any advice on how to deal with the emotional aspect of migraines> feeling guilty when I have to call in sick to work, or leave early. I work in retail, and cant work full time due to the migraines. I'm also a massage therapist and am still trying to get more clients. The migraines are painful, and disabiling. Drugs dont work. Diet is not a trigger, since I eat healthy. I also get tension headaches and anticipatory anxiety about the next one. I'd love any advice, since there are no support groups in my area

I will also mention I've been rear-ended in car accidents 4x since 2000, but only have arthritis in my neck and a couple mildly bulging discs. I don't feel the neck issues. I get physical therapy and stretch my neck daily.

Hi,
There is a product called Migrastick, you get it at
a health food store or the Internet, it is a roller
ball stick all natural with spearmint and lavender,
you roll it on your temples and in a short while
you will feel so much better, 100 applications
for around $8.00, I never leave home without it!
Good Luck and feel better soon,
Lorraine
