Welcome Hillbilly! I have had migraines since 1995. I've learned that sometimes they are triggered by cervicogenic headaches, or using my arms/shoulders, or looking at a computer screen too long. I rest my eyes, rest in quiet dark rooms, take Tylenol or Aleve at the first sign of any headache, and take my Midrin if the Tylenol doesn't work.

Hi JAHMAC I live near Stonehenge small world
My muscles in my neck and shoulders cause mine I think but Topirimate doesn't work, tens is helping a little and massages too

Not far then, I'm in Bath! I get migraines as a symptom from my blood pressure spiking, when I have an Autonomic Disreflexia attack

No not at all. I'm always coming to bath to have ladies do lunch days and Xmas markets etc.
Haven't got a clue what you just said but sounds scary.
I have tmd

Got guards etc but find them sore and nasty to wear

I'm quadriplegic, autonomic Disreflexia is when the body gets a spike in blood pressure, my body can't regulate it properly, so can potentially be fatal. But it can be caused by something as minor as my catheter getting blocked up which will cause my BP to rise, normally I tilt myself in my powerchair which helps, but often it means a trip to The E.D
