    Terrible awful article. TLDR: People who've suffered abused tend to get more migraines. Not sure why. I've had some pretty bad migraines, I can tell you. It's probably something to do with hormones, therefore, women. SSRIs worked for me but probably won't for you. Not sure why they're asking me, I'm just a psychiatrist.

    Yes, I used to get migraines when a teenager and they are very debilitating. I haven't had them for many years and my sympathies go out to people who get them frequently- horrible. My husband gets this REALLY WEIRD syndrome called "exploding head syndrome" where he experiences a really loud bang! like a the sound of a large explosion in his head- it doesn't cause any pain or subsequent problems and happens about once or twice a year- when he first told me I couldn't stop laughing.....Im laughing now just thinking about it.

      They shouldn't have called it exploding head syndrome if they wanted to avoid chuckles :D

    other than a couple of concussions, I don't think I've ever had a headache. therefore, women are more prone to migraines than ME.

    I get migraines very frequently, numerous things cause them, loud noise, strong smells, bright lights, some foods, it's a pain but with modern medicine I don't have them very long anymore. When I was a kid I got them bad and it would destroy 48 hours of my life.

      Strong smells and Cilantro will absolutely destroy my head, I don't know what people's fascination with putting cilantro in food is, but when I get a mouth full of it it's absolutely the worst thing ever and shortly afterwards my head will sound like a freight train is barreling through it. I don't get them often because I try to avoid the certain things I've learned cause my head to self-destruct.

    I get one a year. I lose half my vision about an hour beforehand. Then I discovered "Goody's"-- powdered Excedrin basically -- and a big glass of orange juice, then try to nap and it either becomes a dull headache, or doesn't hit at all. If I am out though, driving is very dangerous, and if I can't get to it in time, I'm down for the count for about 8 hours. Uhg.

    Migraines are kind of a family tradition for my family, my Mother, Father and Sister all get them, and so do I. Thankfully I know my triggers (mainly crappy diet, overexercise, not enough water) and can predict what not to do, and have medicine that makes the recovery time much shorter.
