    Does anyone know if HRT will help migraines! I have migraines all the time! I have done everything from dentist work, chiropractic, allergy shots(helped), but still have to many of these. Been having them since I had my kids 15 years ago. At least 15 a month! Some 3 am, Some with barametric changes(those I know I can not control). I am tired of being sick! Now my bones ache like I have body arthritis...knees, wrists, elbows, feet...

    Has migraine suffer gone through the HRT and has it helped? I have an appointment this afternoon.

    Yes, HRT has helped a couple of my friends with their migraines, but it can also cause migraines to become worse.

    At least 15 a month?!?! Why haven't you been to a neurologist or better yet, a headache specialist.
    You should be tried on a daily preventative migraine medication to prevent migraines. If one doesn't work, they should try you on another one. Your doctors should have told you that taking any pain medication, even over the counter drugs at least 3 times a week or more, just causes rebound headaches which perpetuate the headaches.

    There are many other treatments to try if the medication doesn't work. You have been to the wrong doctors to treat your headaches.

    I just left a response that didn't get posted, nor did I get any statement to post again later that often happens. I'm going to see if this next posting goes through.
