    Daily chronic migraines that only let up during second trimester of pregnancy.

    My wife sufers from chronic daily migraines and has tried every combination of meds under the sun. She has had these for the last 16 years but the have been real bad for the last 6 years. During her pregnacy 4 years ago the headaches went away during the second trimester with out using meds. She has tried all kinds of preventative meds and none of the work. She can take relpax 40mg at the onset of a migraine and it helps but it sometimes take two relpax to help. The only problem with that is that she has these daily and it is not safe nor can we afford for her to take sixty relpax a month. Her nueroligist is now talking about surgery. I was wondering if anyone else has symptoms like this or has luck in finding help. Thnaks
