I had severe, debilitating migraines for years. I took nasal sprays, worked my way up to needles.

I finally figured out out my stomach was damaged by all the meds I was on. Some were harsh cancer drugs, prednisone, and antibiotics. So, I got on some good meds via needle, so my stomach started healing.

My worst triggers were overripe bananas, grapefruit and other citrus. So I went off citrus for a few years, and developed scurvy! I kid you not! So I went back on citrus, because my stomach was in better shape, the scurvy healed!

My DIL gets terrible migraines since she was 10, when she was dropped in her head in a trust circle at Christian camp. But when she is pregnant she doesn’t get them.

i think there are probably as many causes for migraines as there are people with migraines.

I would keep keep a food diary, temperatures, humidity, barometric pressure and anything else you can connect to migraines. Finding the trigger is the first step. Then staying away from the trigger. Although, sometimes finding the trigger is like finding a needle in a haystack!

Praying you find some answers.

keeping in mind we will not be standing before the Great Ibuprofen Tablet when our eternity starts.
Remember the instruction "you have not because you ask not"?
and "let your requests be known to The Father"?
Those aren't just suggestions, worldly people will give worldly suggestions, spiritual people will give spiritual suggests

Spoken like someone who has never been sick a day in their life, because they are genetically and naturally healthy. Like my 88 year old mom, who only became a Christian a few years ago, and didn't depend on God for health, wealth or anything else. And yet, she has it all!

We live in a fallen world. God does not promise us health! He promises he will be with him. I'm going to say a prayer for you, shittim, that when you do become sick, and don't get healed, you will not lose your faith!

Besides, that the Ibuprofen myth was already debunked. It doesn't help migraines. Got it?

oh yes, I have been sick in the past, but not anymore.
Yes, we live in a fallen world, that is why Jesus came, He never said to the sick, "this ones too tough for me, you better go to the dr",
and He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
The Book of Acts is normal Christianity, we have mucked it up for a couple thousand years.
It isn't His will that any of us become ill and He is more than pleased to heal and restore us, the problem is never His end, it is ALWAYS down here.
There are 4 types of people here on earth,
Unsaved
Newly saved
Carnal Christians
Spiritual Christians
If and when we grow in faith and obedience to become spiritual Christians many of His truths of how to access His healing and restoration will be revealed.
Most people who claim Christ stop at salvation, (fire insurance),
and don't grow past that point.
Teaching on accessing His healing and restoration is readily available and never been easier, He really wants His church back.

I get a migraine every day, a lot of times it'll affect my hearing and on rare occasion my vision. I've had it checked out and theirs basically nothing that they can do besides pain medication.
