Weather Changes & Migraine

September 15th 2014 19:42


So, it's time for the seasons to change, which always does a number on my head as far as migraine pain. I have chronic migraine, so daily the level varies. For people who have never had migraine, most of my days would put them to bed. But for me, the average day with lower level pain, sure beats what I went through when I was home bound with migraine pain.


The weather changes always make me nervous. I get the needles and pins pain at the top of my head. I get very tired. I just do not feel well. I make sure I drink enough of water, get enough rest. Eat right. Try to keep my stress level down. It's all so important.

Cosmetic Eyelid Surgery Ease Migraine?

September 12th 2014 19:01


According to new research.a technique known as blepharoplasty.( incisions in the upper eyelid to deactivate so-called "trigger" nerves.) may ease migraine for some. This surgery has been done to look better.

"Ninety percent of our patients had over 50 percent improvement in their migraines," he said. "After a year's time, 51 percent had no migraines."



"As a bonus they got an upper eyelid surgery," added Tessler, who is also director of plastic surgery at University Hospital, New Orleans.(also assistant professor of clinical surgery at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center New Orleans School of Medicine)

Not everyone agrees.
"I think it's conceivable at least in principle that a nerve could be trapped," said Dr. Vincent Martin, co-director of the headache and facial pain program at the University of Cincinnati School of Medicine in Ohio.

"You release the nerve and you remove the irritation," Tessler said.

In his study, the average number of headache days reported by patients declined from 18.5 a month on average to less than 4 a month one year after the surgery.

the average physician fee is about $3,000. The fee does not include any charges for the facility and anesthesia.

Tessler said the surgery, sometimes covered by insurance, takes about three hours. An incision is made in the upper eyelid to get to the specific nerves and release them. "It [also] takes away the bulge of the eyelid," he said, giving a more youthful look.

Speaking for myself, I am now 56 years old & I have an issue with that part of my eyes. Not cosmetic, but my top lids are causing visual problems for me. As a chronic migraineur and the issue with my lids, I would like to take a look at having this done.

Migraine Pain Level Is Back Up!

August 27th 2014 20:15


Well, I am placing a peaceful photo here as that is what I need right now. My migraine pain is back up. I cannot figure out why. It may be the weather changes, but I am not sure.

I will say I go through this when the seasons change. The weather has been a little cooler. Hopefully that is what it is and my pain level will go back down.

Do you find that the weather is a trigger for migraine or your pain level to go up? Did you know that weather can be a trigger for many migraineurs?

Shades, Hat During The Summer

June 12th 2014 16:22


So in a previous post gave tips on what to make sure you have on hand for summer time! I left a few important things out. Always have a pair of sunglasses with you. It is important to wear them in the daylight, even if it is cloudy outside. Wear them traveling in the car in the day, even if it is a short run
