So sucks to be a woman sometimes...

Ah, yes the dreaded hormonal migraine... or the stretch of migraines that just happen to coincide with an already unpleasant time of the month (if you are a man feel free to skip this post with mild embarrassment). Hormonal migraines are quite tricky to treat, as they do not respond as well to most migraine treatments. So don't have to tell me this, since even with the best treatment and abortives, I still have 'chronic migraines' (fifteen or so a month) because I cannot avoid the hormonal migraines. It is also one of the reasons I do not like getting an anti-inflmmatory to treat migraines, because I use another to help with severe crampage (you know what I am talking about, bring you to your knees, curling up, projectile vomiting pain), and using the ones supposed to help with pain (migraines) is not fast acting enough to work for abrupt twisting pain... which means either was I am crippled by pain, since hormonal migraines are not only quite predictable, they are often quite worse. Anyway, Amerge is the triptan of choice for such migraines, which I am quite aware of as it was my first abortive, but due to the whole projectile vomiting issue I was switched to the faster acting, melt in the mouth alternatives. And then there are hormonal treatments to counter act the flux in estrogen, which I have not tried, and am reluctant to do so, since I don't want to take anything that messes with the whole hormonal balance.

However, obviously I need to deal with these differently than my other migraines, because they are not going away.
