What do you know about MIGRAINE HEADACHES?

I’m one of the 21 million + people who suffer from Migraine Headaches.

Migraines are not “just a headache.  I have Chronic Migraines (sometimes lasting up to 14 days). Migraines cause horrific pain, and at times, disturbed vision, sensitivity to light, smells, noise and some people become nauseous or vomit. Migraine pain is pulsing or throbbing in one area of the head and usually long-lasting.

Mine began in my late teens and have stuck with me until this very day.  They are bilateral (each side of head) and typically weather-related,  with horrific pain lasting weeks, coupled with countless trips to the ER for relief. Migraines have caused me to miss too many sick days off from work, countless days spent in a darkened room with an ice pack strapped to my head and numerous times when I’ve missed out on the joy of life.
