I'd guess my family has this gene. We see 6 generations of affected
individuals, primarily the women in the family.. The men just have more
headaches that the average...
"We are as much in the dark ages now with modern technology as they were in
the 12th century science of star gazing when it comes to the human body."Tell that to my mom who with her new hip is walking normally for the
first time in years.
To 2cents. I've suffered migraines for years along with my daughter and my
son. Migraines weren't our first diagnosis, either. I blamed stress, all
kinds of things. When my son started getting headaches, we tried glasses,
relaxation, they only got worse. Before I had them (they hit in my
30's) I thought like you, that they were just a headache brought on by
stress and to stop complaining. NO, they are not. The pain and nausea are
debilitating. Light stabs you in the head. You just want to curl up and die.
I have tried everything... narcotics don't stop it, they just
cover up the pain and put you to sleep while the migraine lasts. It has nothing
to do with stress as I've had migraines while relaxed and happy!I just hope that, unlike me, 2cents is never cursed with this pain.
2cents: Science proves most everything time and time again. It's religion
that has never proven anything.
