    Migraine story apparent disappearance completely of migraine symptoms
    An_253379 posted:
    My girl friend who is 20 years old now had intense migraines "not headaches" but Migraines She would experience intense migraines that left her vomiting and unable to drive until they stopped for 6 years approx. regularly from 12-18 years old and on the last year she went on a trip to Brazil where she claims after experiencing a night of terrible migraines (enough to keep her in the bed) she woke up completely "cured" as in she never experienced migraines from then on. She is 5ft 6 and in great physical health. She has had a terrible short term memory ever since birth just like her dad so I was wondering if that might be related to her migraines. Should we be worried? Any similar stories?
