😎 shades for migraine

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?

  1. The only thing I can do when a migraine hits is sleep and drinks lots of coffee (if I can hold it down of course.) My Migraines usually come with no warning when I’m fast asleep so preventive medication at this stage is not really an option.

    As my whole left side of my body paralyzes due to hemplegic migraines, it is very frightening to go to bed feeling fine and waking up unable to move the left side of your body. The first time I had one, I truly thought I was either having a heart attack, stroke or both.

  2. Hi, I just found your blog (you followed my instagram) I also have suffered with headaches for the last 20 years. You asked for a suggestion, not sure if this will help you but I just discovered a homeopathic remedy that has prevented the headache that follows an aura. I’ve only tried it 3 times but it worked twice. It is from “Hylands” and the name of it is Pulsatilla Nig 30X. I put 3 pellets under my tongue and then I do it again 15 minutes later and maybe one more time after that. I carry it with me so I can do it immediately when that dot in the center of my eye starts to flicker (that slowly grows to a half moon and gets bigger till it disappears). I hope you are doing ok.
