We are truly blessed to have so many migraine books and fabulous websites to help us navigate our way through our excruciating migraine attacks.
I have read all of these books bar two. And I highly recommend doing some reading if you have been newly diagnosed with migraines.
Having said that, I had them for many years before I started reading up on them. I just thought they would go away. Silly me.
It's been a very long and painful journey and I have gained valuable knowledge from these books. I took something different from each one.
The Migraine Brain, Migraines for Dummies, and Living Well with Migraine Disease and Headaches have to be my most favorites, but there are a few others worth mentioning.
I hope you enjoy learning what you can do to better manage the pain that comes with migraines. Coping with this life long condition can be very challenging to say the least, don't' be afraid to get more help where and when you need it.
These migraine books are from different sources (I searched for the cheapest and most reliable) and they are not e-books, they are paperback or hardcover migraine books. My favorite one is in first place, the others are in no particular order. I've learned something different from them all.
And you, like me, might prefer a good old fashioned book to a computer screen. But you can always dim the screen on kindle too! (Hence the purple screen here).
ENJOY my selection of top migraine books and I hope it helps you to pick through the masses of them.

The Migraine Brain: Your Breakthrough Guide to Fewer Headaches, Better Health
Dr. Bernstein also explains why migraines happen, why they are so often misdiagnosed, and why so few people get the right treatment for them. She reveals the latest research that shows that Migraine Brains share a hypersensitivity to stimuli -- the Migraine Brain can actually look different from others on a brain scan -- and is more likely to experience a cascade of neurological reactions that give rise to the common clusters of migraine symptoms.
This breakthrough medical knowledge makes treatment and recovery possible with new migraine-specific drugs as well as with complementary treatments such as yoga, biofeedback, and an exercise regimen. With the extraordinarily thorough recommendations, you will be fully equipped with all the latest information you need to understand migraines and to help your family and co-workers understand that migraine isn't just a headache: it's a serious, yet treatable disease.

A Brain Wider Than the Sky: A Migraine Diary
Then in 2006 Levy was struck almost daily by a series of debilitating
migraines that kept him essentially bedridden for months, imprisoned by
pain and nausea that retreated only briefly in gentler afternoon light.
When possible, Levy kept careful track of what triggered an onset of pain from drinking a bourbon, to the stabbing pulse brought on by a few too many M&M's and in luminous prose recounts his struggle to live with migraines, his meticulous attempts at calibrating his lifestyle to combat and avoid them, and most tellingly, the personal relationship a migraineur develops - an almost Stockholm syndrome-like attachment with the indescribable pain, delirium, and hallucinations.
This book offers rich insights into an illness whose effects are too often discounted and whose sufferers are too often overlooked. Definitely one of the migraine books to consider buying. I know after I read it I felt more informed on migraine disease and much less alone in my suffering.
