Re: Diabetes And Migrane Headaches
I'm a former Marine who was attached to the 4th MEB aboard ship for a time as well as in Dhahran before that. My unit was also at the border under the 1st MEF during the ground assault. I have migraines since the war. Still get them over 12 years. Sometimes they are very very severe! I call those my Gulf War headaches. I get them often. Fought the VA for Imitrex injectors. They abort the migraine within 25 minutes of injecting. Injectors work better than the Imitrex nasal spray or pills. Aborts 8 out of 10 migraines. VA gave Neurontin for migraine maintenance. Neurontin seems to prevent lesser tension-type headaches, but not the migraines.
