'Attack them early!'
'The sooner you can attack the headache, the better. Whether you're an actress or you're a teacher or you're the postman, you have a job to do...and you can't be shut down for two days because of a migraine."
'actress Jennie Garth

'Dodging triggers is key'
'I'm very careful about what I eat to avoid my triggers, like MSG...and today my headaches are decreasing in frequency and severity. I go years now without getting any, and I see that as a bonus!"
'former basketball star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

'Find out if they run in your family!"
'A day of excitement and eating used to always end in a horrible headache."
'actress Lisa Kudrow, whose father and siblings also had migraines.

'See your doctor'you owe it to yourself!'
'Knowing that I had something that could end the headache was such a relief. "If you haven't been to the doctor and you're still suffering, every couple of years something new is being done. And you really owe it to yourself to go back."
'Brady Bunch star Susan Olsen
