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

Yes I've had them since I was a child and later they developed into migraines which i still get occasionally. They have been horrendous. They are worse if I don't eat properly or skip meals and if i only have cold food for some reason. I think you need to make sure you take time over your health to eat healthily, rest, and exercise and try to get enough sleep. Too much sleep is not good... also try to deal with stress. It's difficult.. but you can get better or at least the headaches will get less frequent.
