Hi,
I do! I wondered if there might be a link with dyspraxia... I suffered from them since I was about 15. Horrible. Hope you are OK... Migraines are awful.

Hi Steve,
Short answer - yes, all the time.
But headaches are a bit of a "non-specific symptom" as the doctors keep saying these days, and can be caused by lots of things. In my case I think the main culprit is dehydration, though they can also be brought on by stress, atmospheric pollution and food allergies to name but a few.
Not a terribly helpful answer I'm afraid, but I don't think dyspraxia is in itself a main cause.
Regards
Tim

Stay strong, have they given you a triptan drug to try?? I take bisoprolol also every morning and then a zolmatriptan if I have an attack. Seems to help bit sometimes nothing can stop the pain. X
