    Hi all,
    My migraines started when i was 8, but went away like a year later. How? i have no idea, i have no memory of years 9-11. Then they started up again a year and a half ago, to this day i get one every day. But its like i'm on a roller coaster, on a daily basis i can have an extremely painful to a very dull one with in minutes. I dont understand how it can be painful and in 5 minutes its dull. My headaches will go up an down all day every day. Is that normal? Has anybody every experienced this? Any advice or suggestions would be great. thanks.
