    I have suffered as many with migraines since about 7 yrs. In the past years I have found pretty good relief with triptans. Now however, I cant take those anymore because they make affect my heart. I cannot take asprin in any form because of stomach problems. Does anyone know of anything I can try. I have just one bad headache a month and I know a lot of people suffer a lot more than I do, but I have other types of headaches almost every day. I am desperate to try something. I had botox but it did not help.

    There are other medications that can be prescribed that may help control migraines. I'd suggest you check with your doctor since you have a few things going on, but ginger tea w chamomile can be helpful for some. Perhaps a daily med might help since you seem to have constant problems.
