    Sorry for all you migraine sufferers. I've had some awful headaches but would never class them as a migraine, I think people use that term too easily for general headache (not on here). I've seen what they do to a friend and you can't fake it.

    I have had migraine attacks and can honestly say that looking at a phone or laptop screen and typing messages is the absolute LAST thing I want to do. The reality of a migraine isn't bitching on social media while beating someone else at Popquiz or Candy Crush, it's lying as still as possible in a room that is as dark and quiet as possible while hoping that you won't throw up again because each time you do it feels like someone is jamming an ice pick into your head. If you can dick about on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/whatever then it ain't a migraine.
    Naw, it's not that simple. They do vary in intensity. I have had debilitating ones like you describe, where I don't dare leave the bed unless absolutely necessary, light is blinding, noise unbearable, and any sudden movement sends thundering pain across one side of my forehead, but I also get less severe ones where I am miserable and stupefied and nauseated, but I can still hang out at GR with the screen dimmed for a half hour or so at a time.

    Now, in Tori's case, you would think if the migraine was severe enough to require hospitalization, she would not be able to Tweet, but it's possible she is simply an even more determined attention whore than you imagined.

    I have to agree with Ravenna. Migraines do vary in intensity. I've been suffering from migraines monthly for the last eleven years. Yes, you're all reading that correctly. Every single month for eleven years. They usually last around three to four days, the longest being ten days. Aside from the obvious head pain (and nausea), they make me extremely tired, but I still function. I still get up and go to work and do all the things I have to do. I'm lucky because I know they could be a lot worse and I'm thankful they are bearable. Occasionally, I am blessed with migraine-induced vertigo. I can't tell you what a treat that is. Oy.

    Yeah, that sounds like a psychological thing. I wonder what the root cause is though?

    I knew a girl in high school that ALWAYS had something wrong with her and it was real....she wasn't making any of it up. She told me years later that she was being horribly physically abused and molested at home and that the only way she had a reprieve from the abuse is if she was sick.

    My youngest was in a car accident over the Christmas holiday, and got hurt. We got an attorney, but told him that she needed to go to an Orthopedic Dr., all he wanted to do was send her to a chiropractor. Um, no, she has scoliosis, I'm not letting any quack start crack her back to 're'align' anything! She needs to make sure that she gets all her medical bills covered, and get proper care.

    First off, no reputable chiro is going to just go to town and start cracking away.

    Second. A car wreck injury and scoliosis are two separate things entirely.

    Yes, you might need an ortho.

    I am one of those persons who swear by chiropractors. But as with doctors, there are good ones and bad ones. I've been back to mine recently for neck and shoulder issues. Suggested by the NP I see, in fact. Along with exercises and deep tissue massage.

    Now the MD I used to see would have loaded me up with pain meds. I guess some people would prefer this. But I think I'd rather be moving pain-free without becoming a junkie. And for a hell of a lot cheaper (a pain med habit is expensive after awhile).

    I do know that people can get a lot of relief from chiropractors (and I work with a couple of ladies who get migraine relief from visits), my experience trying to settle auto accidents (on behalf of the non-at-fault party) just really put me off them.

    I have to agree with you. I love my chiropractor and have been going to him for almost 25 years now for hip issues. An ortho suggested replacement of both hips for a 14 year old. (hip dysplasia at birth and improper healing) when we turned that down he wanted me to prescribe some heavy duty drugs for a kid to help with the pretty severe discomfort.

    A couple of years ago I started seeing a chiropractor who was recommended by a neurosurgeon. I told her up front "no funny business with my neck" as I have heard the horror stories. But I have to say she was amazing. I have no idea what the name of the procedure is that she did on me but it had the same effect as a deep tissue massage. She would press on certain areas on my neck, shoulders and jaw and move the pressure around a little. It was painful (but a good pain) and it actually gave me movement in my neck that I hadn't had in years. I think she is a witch because I have no idea how she was able to get the results she did with such seemingly little effort.

    I used to adjust BI claims many moons ago and came across a large number of claimants who would contact a lawyer before even speaking to their doctor. Those were the ones whom I doubted when it came to the severity of their injuries.

    I have chronic migraines, damn near daily. I've only missed a total of maybe five days of work in the past year. Luckily I've never had to go to the ER, though with the last one I probably should have but I couldn't even think about it because I had vertigo with it and absolutely could not move.

    eta, i lied. I did go to the hospital with a migraine in 2013 and was kept for three days, but that was in conjunction with a chronic condition.

    Yes, they are 2 separate items, however since she has scoliosis, she is not the average chiro/car crash patient. The lawyer was giving me names of chiros that he worked with previously. I know nothing about them, and was not going to trust my daughter to someone who might not go above and beyond (or whose main interest might be just to settle a law suit).
    I had a chiropractor that I used to go to. Once he stopped practicing, I stopped going. I am not quick to trust, and I really don't want just anyone manipulating my body.

    I used to have a co-worker who used to get migraines. Then she got breast cancer, the usual treatment for that, and when she was done with that her migraines were gone as well.
