It seems like I've always had headaches that came with my cycle... but they've been getting worse over the past few months. Last month it was an unbearable migraine and I ended up getting shots that day just so I could function. Well my montly migraine hit yesterday and I took one Immitrex for it... the first hour I felt so much pressure in my neck, shoulders, and jaw... it was really painful. Of course I felt better afterwards, but something about this medicine possibly causing a heart attack scares me. I dealt with the headache today instead of taking more. I'd love to know if there are any natural remedies out there that I could try for my migraines, so I can still function and avoid these meds.
I've heard low progesterone can be a cause of these migraines, and I do have PCOS and Insulin Resistance... so should I look into some kind of progesterone supplement?
Details - my period is really heavy for the 2nd and sometimes 3rd day - this is usually when I get the migraine, then my period dissappears for about 12 hours, then I have two more days of light to normal bleeding.
I'd appreciate any help or advice or anything
