    moon phases and migraines

    dg517 posted:
    am a 52 yr old woman who never suffered from migraines until about 9 months ago. i've started to track when they occur and the generally are around the full moon. the week before is excruciating for me (and my family). and the difference after the full full moon is quite dramatic…i feel like a new person. I'm taking a ton of meds for at least a week to help me function during the headaches which mostly start in the middle of the night and tend to ease up slightly during the day. anyone out there experiencing anything like this?? i thought it might be menopause. my mother and sisters never suffered like this. any thoughts and/or suggestions are welcome. i hate giving up a week of my life every month to these stupid headaches. thanks
