Comment:
I have been using Imitrex injections and pills for about fifteen years now and am so grateful for the relief from migraines that it has given me.

I have been suffering from migranes since I was about 12. I suffered through them because my family thought I wanted attention.

I'm 24 years old and have had migraine/tension headaches since elementary school. I get extreme sensitivity to light, sound, and sometimes smells. I've tried every aspirin there is and nothing has worked. I usually just go to sleep and pray that the pain is gone when I wake, and usually it isn't! Sleeping sometimes makes it worse!
