C is for:

Cluster Headaches: Severe attacks in head pain, unilaterally, lasting 15-180 minutes. Cluster headaches can occur more then once a day. See Cluster Headaches: The Basics Also, for more information, visit Cluster Busters. Also, if you go to Cluster Busters, please check out the video linked on the front page.....it really puts into perspective how painful these attacks are.

Caffeine: Ah, caffeine. This one can go either way for a Migraineur. It can help or make a Migraine worse. For me, I find that I end up with a Migraine if I don't drink it! Note: Caffeine Guy don't even think about commenting here!

Coke Classic: The end all, be all of what I need when I feel like a truck hit me. I am not a soda drinker, but this is my all time fav!!!! It not only helps my belly feel better, but my head too!

Chronic Daily Headache: or CDH - is a headache more then 15 days in a month. See Chronic Daily Headache: The Basics

Awesome concept, Eileen! Nice job on the alphabet blogs.

ooohh...lolcats! Isn't that the truth!

I am on vacation this week. Maybe I will get a little more done on the migraine side of things. I am currently writing a book of personal experiences. It may only end up being a personal book, but I am OK with that. Though I have a friend helping out with some photography too.

I know you've been going through a lot yourself, but your perseverance is awesome and I look up to you so much.

Keep on keeping on, sister! I never imagined that I'd love a group of people across the world as much as I love you guys!

My C would be Chocolate - my comfort of first defense if a Migraine is coming on - undoubtedly it's the caffeine in it plus the whatever it is in chocolate that makes you feel loved - can't remember which chemical that is but me brain loves it - slurps it up!

I just started a blog on migraines. They started last year and lasted everyday for a few months before it was diagnosed. Three of my parents' four children have migraines: my sister, my brother and now me. I'm glad there are lots of people out blogging and sharing information on migraines. We truly need a lot of support. Talking to others who suffer helps me feel not alone in this isolating problem.
