Sleepless nights trigger migraine

I have a migraine and it attacks when I go to bed late at night. I was indeed disturbed by a very painful headache when it comes. Is it true that migraine is a lifetime illness?

Started getting migraines at 13. suffered them endlessly throught high school, and still get them at 39. Not only are they disruptive, but some medications they hand out to 'ease' them are addictive, and a lot of natural remedies don't work. When I get a pre-migraine aura I drink alot of water, try to relax a little, and just try to distract myself, tho not being able to look at a book, tv or computer screen limits those options.

I think it can causes migraines, sure, and many other health issues as well, since we all know how important it is to get enough sleep. I have had migraines all my life, and it doesn't seem to go away. But luckily there is medication for it. Have you tried talking to a doctor about it?

I do have migraine attacks form time to time.. whenever I'm so stress it's triggered.., It can be cured and controlled.., and you have to do non pharmacologic measures to manage the pain..=)

If you live a very stressful life, then I should say that migraine is a lifetime illness. I have migraine, too and it usually occurs when I lack sleep, too tired of work and less of exercise.. I only take pain reliever when the pain worsens, so as not to make me dependent of synthetic medicines. Sleep and relaxing could help me ease my migraine.. I suggest you concentrate on taking more time of sleep and having regular exercise.. Hope you'll overcome that..

Yes, it is...there's no cure to it. But, there are things or medicines which can only ease the pain, though it will not assure you that it will not come back again and again. When you have insufficient sleep, that triggers migraine.

I know how you feel and its terrible. I am experiencing it now and I hate it when i have these migraine attacks. I've already had 2 advils and my head is still aching. I used to drink a tablet with a higher dosage but I lost the prescription and I dont have time to go back to the doctor so I have to stick with Advil.
