I have suffered from Migraines for the last 40 years, usually about once a month, but over the last 5 years it has gradually increased in frequency till about 5 months ago I was having them 2 or 3 times a week. The main symptoms were severe vision disturbance for about 30 mins followed by a dull headache lasting about 24 hours. At my last checkup my doctor mentioned that there was growing evidence that aspirin can be effective if taken as soon as the signs start. The next day I was on an flight to Italy and sure enough a migraine started. I immediately took 3 soluble aspirins (you can chew them easily without water). It didn't seem to do much at the time, but I didn't have another migraine for three weeks. Next time, again I took the aspirin. I've now been free of migraines for 4 months. Coincidence? Maybe, but I figure it must be worth a try. I've started taking 1/4 of an aspirin a day just for good measure. But if you have any stomach problems the experts say you should check with you physician first. Good luck.
