I saw a migraine specialist in Boulder, CO in September. During the course of the visit, he asked me if I had any trouble with my sleep. I quickly responded NO BUT and I listed off some problems that I never thought of as problems. I snore. I'm not the classic snorrer. I'm not overweight, don't have high blood pressure, etc. It seems that snoring and migraines can be related and snoring is a sleeping problem! Any way, with the discussion about sleep, I realized I DO have sleep problems that I will not bore you with.
Because I think my migraines are serotonin related, this month I doubled my L-Tyrosine (needed for the synthesis of serotonin) during the week when I usually get migraines. So far so good. No migraine to report. Interestingly, it turns out serotonin is needed to synthesize melatonin. Melatonin directly affects sleep.
We all get different headaches and migraines for different reasons. All the cures are different. We all can respond differently to the same supplements and medications. Do what you want with the information below. ASK A DOCTOR BEFORE MAKING ANY CHANGES TO YOUR MEDS!
