I don't know if there's any specific relation between migraines and thalassemia, but if anyone has any tips, I would also like to know, as my wife gets them occasionally. I've been getting ocular migraines that don't have a headache but distort my vision, limiting my online time lately. Again, if anyone has ideas that are known to help, we would appreciate it.

I do get headaches but it’s usually because my hemoglobin has fallen. Meaning not enough blood is going to the brain.

I used to get migraines with an aura warning 20mins before a 3 hour headache approx every month, now they are far less frequent. I supplement with very low dose thyroid (t3), and I think that helps, i think it may also be related to glucose metabolism. I have heard that alot of sugar and progesterone can help stop it. Last time i did a hike on an empty stomach i got one.

Interestingly also i took some liver herbs and immediately got the worst 6 hour+ migraine of my life. Either it stimulated something in my liver, or the herb irritated my intestine i think.

the study cited below makes a link between  migraines and nitric oxide. I think there is debate as to whether nitric oxide is healthy or not.
