Today is a different post that usual but I wanted to post this for the people that struggle with migraines like I do. A migraine had hit me 2 days ago and once again last night and the pain every-time still feels like nothing Ive felt before. I noticed that I started getting headaches everyday a few months ago.. this worried the doctor that I was working for so he had me set up and appointment to see the neurologist. When the time finally came for me to see her the diagnosis ended up being “Chronic Migraines”. There is no cure, there is nothing you can do besides try and make yourself as comfortable as possible.
The one medication I know helps 90%} of the time is Cambia. This is a powder you mix with water. The downside…. You can only get it from a specialty pharmacy and only neurologists can prescribe it.
Other things that I do when they hit is I’ll put some ice on the back of neck this usually helps numb the throbbing pain. Peppermint oil on the temples is a natural remedy that helps calm down the pain as well.
When all else fails, I lock myself in a dark room and fall asleep. Most of the time when I wake up they are gone, but unlike last night it wasn’t. I try not to move around to much.
I wish I knew what triggered them but honestly I have no idea. But for all of you that actually get them I feel your pain! Your not alone!
