Having migraine is like being a telepathic meteorologist. You can always sense (and feel) a change in the weather before it actually happens.  Weather triggers are really hard to manage because you cannot control them.  One of the most common weather-related triggers for people with migraine is changes in barometric pressure.

Patient Input Needed for Review of New Migraine Medicine by Nov 30

Photo copyright The Headache & Migraine Policy Forum

The Institute for Clinical and Economic Review (ICER) is assessing the first CGRP submitted for FDA approval. Insurance companies will use ICER’s final report (as well as other information) when determining if they will cover this medicine (and other medicines in this class that are expected to follow), what tier the medicine will be in on the plan’s formulary, and what types of prior authorization or step therapy will be required. 

It is critically important that ICER understands the migraine patient experience. You can help.

Call to Action: Patient input must be received by November 30, 2017. You can access the online submission form here.

This is your story to tell and a chance to be heard and advocate. Join us in showing that we are a strong, united front to be taken seriously. 

Patient Guide: For a preview of the eight questions ICER asks patients and guidance on key points to include in your response, read HMPF's Patient Guide.

Have Questions? A teleconference to educate patients and to answer your questions about the ICER Open Input period will be held on Tuesday, November 28 at 3:00pm ET. Click here to register for this free teleconference.

I love a good lipstick, but hate having to reapply it multiple times a day. I am always looking for great makeup products that actually do what they advertise to do. As the self-proclaimed Migraine Diva, I take great pride in looking the part (when chronic migraine allows!). Just because I have multiple chronic illnesses doesn't mean that I don't enjoy getting dolled up.

Pranamat ECO Massage Mat & PranaPillow for #Migraine Relief


Whenever I am down during a migraine attack or when my lower back pain is an issue, I usually wish I could go get a massage.  In the past, I used to have a massage membership and those monthly massages really helped to ease a lot of my chronic migraine and back pain.  So many areas in my neck, forehead, shoulders, and back would become so sore and stiff that only a good cranial sacral or deep tissue massage could help relieve it.

The Art of Letting Go



Letting go isn't always easy.  Sometimes we tend to hold onto things that hurt us or that are doing us a disservice even though we know they are toxic.  Whether they are negative thoughts, bad behaviors, or people who mistreat us - finding the strength to let them go can be difficult because old habits are hard to break.  Maybe it isn't even any of those things we need to let go of.  Trying to break free from old versions of ourselves that hold us back is hard too.

Fibromyalgia hurts and it hurts everywhere. Getting out of bed in the morning can take several minutes because your joints are too stiff and your muscles are sore and achy. Feeling fatigued even before the day has started is a commonality.  When I am in an active flare my body feels like it is being used as a punching bag nonstop. I am in a constant state of exhaustion and the slightest touch hurts.

There is nothing worse than getting hit with a migraine attack while you are out, except being stuck with no relief. So many of us with chronic migraine often have way too many medications to lug around and finding ways to travel with ice packs and anti-nausea meds or relievers can be cumbersome.  If there is an easy and efficient way to treat a migraine attack on the go most of us, if not all of us, are here for it!
