I haven't posted in a while. A little background...I've suffered from migraines since I think 1995 so over 20 years. I started out taking aspirin until I started going overboard and wound up with bleeding ulcers. Next I went to Immitrex pills. They stopped working.Then Immitrex shots and/or Migergot. The Immitrex would work like a charm 90% of the time but 3 years ago I guess I was overdoing it thanks to a series of awful migraines that would not quit and I wound up with permanent tinnitus. Days where my ears are screaming and I have a migraine are very dark days. The Migergot is a blessing but most of the time the side effects are terrible. I get scary chest pains like I'm having a heart attack.
I've been tracking my migraines for sometime now. I usually get one every 3-6 days and almost never make it past 6 days. I average 12-14 migraines a month. Quality of life was very bad.
I started to take a supplement for arthritis/migraines (I won't say the name as I'm sure that is not allowed here) around the same time I started to drink golden milk (turmeric tea). It took about 3 months but the number of migraines started to decrease and this month so far I have only had 3 migraines. I had 2 migraines this month but forced myself to push through them and after about 3 hours of suffering they went away on their own which is almost a miracle for me. I know that the majority of my migraines are REBOUND headaches and my guess is that most of us are suffering with rebound headaches from our meds. I am convinced that the longer I can go without taking the meds the better my chances are of decreasing the number of migraines I have. I don't know if I will ever stop having migraines but if this keeps up I will be a happy camper. I hope I have not jinxed myself 😉
I just wish I had tried the supplement for a few months before starting the golden milk because I don't know if it's one or the other that is working but I'll continue to use both in case it's a synergy effect plus I absolutely love the taste of the golden milk. has anyone else here tried it?
