Today, June 21st is migraine solidarity day 😎 we wear our shades for migraine today for awareness.
Migraines affect 1 billion people worldwide, and unfortunately I am one of them. They are so much more than ‘just a headache’ and can be hard for people who don’t get them to understand. I have been going through a good period of migraine pain the last few months, but ever since my accident, and subsequent vascular surgeries I have had them. Along with the pain I usually get an aura in the days leading up to it, which can be pretty frightening. I see zig zags lights moving around on my right side of vision. I can’t see straight, my balance is off, it can be pretty scary. Then comes the headache, vomiting, nausea, sound and light sensitivity. I take a medication that helps prevent them that I will probably take for the rest of my life, and that comes with side effects too. I am down from spending up to half the month suffering these headaches to maybe 1 per month. Keeping my fingers crossed that it stays that way!! Migraines are NO joke! Any favorite remedies from my fellow migraine warriors?
