There are as many opinions on the cause of chronic migraines as there are patients and physicians! Basically, as with all pain syndromes, the body and mind are communicating a message that “something needs to be adjusted.” This condition can be one of the most debilitating and difficult conditions to overcome. Trips to the ER for shots, dangerous medication combinations (read your migraine medicine information inserts) cold towels, over the counter medicines, and excesss sleep are no way to manage life.
