  • I used to get migraine’s quite frequently. I noticed that as soon as I started drinking 2.2 litres of water everyday I haven’t had a migraine in a few months. I only started drinking 2.2 litres of water 2 months ago.

  • Ive suffered from migraines for years. I’ve been taking a new drug called Aimovig which is a monthly injection and it has significantly reduced the frequency of my migraines. It is pricy, but is covered for me by my drug plan

  • You don’t tell that to any other pain patient what they told my mother with back pain “you have to stay ahead of the pain”. Only migraine patients are told you have to stop taking the med. The truth is that it’s NOT rebound pain it’s that you didn’t ABORT the migraine to start with. You know what’s really funny? I take it for arthritis and don’t get rebound headaches. Explain that.

  • I feel after tooth ache, migraine is one of the worst pains. Fantastic presentation. Always ask your pharmacist as they are your medication experts ��

  • 9:35 vasodilation doesn’t cause the headache, that theory had been proven false, you can get the headache before the vasodilation phase

  • I found that codeine-containing pain medication to manage an acute attack worsens migraines over time, and prolongs the migraine duration. Since changing to anti-inflammatory containing treatment only (Paracetamol and Ibuprofen), my migraine duration have decreased a lot.

  • there is good information here HOWEVER, the audio has issues and pieces of him talking are just cut out, cutting out some of the information.  It was a little annoying but still thank you for posting info on this subject.

  • I took reyvow 100mg and had a horrible reaction. it was like some sort of bad acid trip. I was paranoid, and I thought I was going to stroke out. there was some tingling sensation, and nausea, though its hard to tell if that nausea was related to the migraine or the med. the reyvow did get rid of my migraine, but I actually thought I was going to die. Im sure it was a psych reaction, but it was so strong.

  • Amazing helpful vid. When I get migraines I be sick, or sometimes I don’t.
    Can we also get migraines with less sleep and less water? And when can we get migraines?

  • Try these tips and get to feeling better fast.����

    Try a Cold Pack. If you have a migraine, place a cold pack on your forehead

    Use a Heating Pad or Hot Compress

    Ease Pressure on Your Scalp or Head.

    Dim the Lights.

    Try Not to Chew.

    Get Some Caffeine.

    Practice Relaxation

    Take Some Ginger.

  • I have vestibular migraines. I had my first session done on Thursday. I honestly felt worse. My symptoms increased and I’ve had a migraine since then. Super exhausted for 3 whole days. Can it be possible that acupuncture is making me have this horrible migraines after? My acupuncture doctor wants to detox my body and was given Angelica root herb to take for a week. Can acupuncture give you horrible migraines after?

  • I’ve had over 30 migraines this summer and I at least had a headache every day. Also I’m 16 and got my first when I was 6/7. After I had 8 in June we decided to see a neurologist and I got nortriptyline to help prevent it and some sumatriptan to take when I get it. I ended up having one almost every other day in July so when I went back in August I upped the amount of preventative I took and got rizatriptan in a high dose. Upping the nortriptyline has been working for now but with school online I know I’m gonna get a ton more because I know too much screen time is one of my triggers. We don’t know of anything else that triggers them for me so I’ll get some every month and it really sucks.

  • Thank you so much dude. I have had problems with migraines in the past. My parents also know your parents personally and are very good friends. We are the Shirazi family

  • Something works….well, we’re not going to use that anymore. Let me give you something that will make you sick to your stomach and will do nothing for your headache.

  • Stay far away from CGRP, look at the death toll reported on the FDA’s Medwatch site in the 1st year alone. It causes cardiac issues. God bless you!

  • I suffer from hormonal migraines a week before my period im 38 and thinking of having a hysterectomy would this help the migraines?

  • I was misdiagnosed with a migraine and found out that I have EDS and a Spontaneous CSF leak. My headache was positional. I felt much better laying flat. More doctors need to be taught about CSF leaks in my personal opinion.

  • Could you make a video about chronic joint and muscle pain? I have a type of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and I really struggle about helping reduce pain in the long term.

  • HI! Great video. Brief and concise notes, so easy to understand. I have a question, btw, doesn’t verapamil cause vasodilation? I was just wondering how it could work for migraine as a prophylaxis.
