Recently, I have met a few people who also suffer from chronic migraines and, as expected, most of us have tried the same meds, the same treatments, and have experienced similar side effects and confronted the same judgements. It's nice to talk to people who get it, so to speak. But, at the same time, it is a little disheartening when you are confronted with the fact that very little advancements have been made in the last several years in the study or treatment of migraines. Also, we still have a lot of work to do to educate non migraine sufferers on the fact that a migraine is NOT "just a headache."
In Indiana, this year, we have had virtually no Winter. It has been unseasonably mild. Furthermore, the weather has been increasingly erratic--40's and raining one day, 20 degrees and windy the next. Basically, a nightmare for the migraine sufferer. And, the bees, the bees continue to come and mark the pain.
One thing that has helped me lately is essential oils. After doing some extensive research, I put together a blend of essential oils that I call "Migraine Soother." I put the mixture in a roller bottle & apply directly to my forehead & temples when the migraine strikes. It doesn't get rid of the pain, but it definitely takes the edge off a bit, makes the pain a little less acute. More on this & where you can get some later.
Wishing you all more pain-free days & sleep-filled nights.
