    I drink about a pint before I have my coffee and then I take a quart bottle to work with me and try to empty it twice while Iím at work.

    My posture at work doesnít help (looking at computer monitors 9-10 hours a day). The chiropractor really helps because my spine gets subluxation in my upper back and neck which causes the muscles to tense up.

    me too, I'm sure my posture isn't much better... I have a desk job too, starting at computer monitors all day....

    I usually try to drink about 8 to 10 20 oz bottles of water a day.... I always notice a huge difference in how I feel, when I go a couple days with a lower water intake... I think it probably does make a difference, as you mentioned.

If your wallet isn't being kind, check your workplace and ask if they have a nurse that can check it for you. If you start to get a migraine, check your blood pressure as soon as it comes on to see if there's any drastic change. It could be the cause.

    I used to have chronic high blood pressure without knowing it. Once I found out a few years ago, I started taking medicine daily for it. It took a couple of years, but I've noticed a few weeks ago that my severe "stay in bed for a day or two" migraines are virtually gone. I haven't had a migraine sick day for a while and I used to get 10--20 a year. I still get chronic headaches and some of them are severe, but they're not migraines and I KNOW it's from stress. And if I do get something close to a migraine, coffee and/or Tylenol + sleep usually knocks it out. Also with those headaches, my blood pressure is elevated.

    Now my blood pressure has been great to the point where the doctor cut my dose in half and said that if I continue on the path, he'll take me off of it for good. A good diet plus exercising 3-6 days a week has helped tremendously. And I lost 20 pounds over that 3+ year period. I'm not a heavy person but I was carrying 25 more pounds than when I was an athlete and much more active. Hope all of this helps.
    That is awesome, DS!! Love reading that your migraines are mostly gone! Great advice ... I know so many on this thread have mentioned the cause of theirs being high blood pressure.

    I'm at the opposite end of the spectrum, super low blood pressure, so they always got to be careful with how they treat mine in order to avoid lowering it any further. Sure mine will pass when I hit menopause.... so many different causes, but seems a vast majority from this thread is high blood pressure.

    I can not compare, though I do have a history of some form of migraines. Fortunately, not often lengthy. But still, I know the feeling of what a really bad headache can do. So I empathize with anyone who suffers more so than I do.

    Thanks, CanDB! Appreciate the kind words...

    My pleasure! I have a real empathy for migraine sufferers. I am not in the same place as some of you, but when I suffer them, I understand what others must be going though....and probably much worse. It's good that folks share their collective knowledge, even if it does not work for others. Sooner or later it helps speed up the process of finding solutions.
