The Trigger Fairies

We share a humorous graphic with you: two migraine trigger “fairies” discuss their evil plan and almost forget something obvious! Trigger Fairies

All joking aside, migraine attacks involve much more than the painful headache. The most common symptoms in our 2015 Migraine in America Survey are head pain, sensitivity to light and sound, and difficulty concentrating. Symptoms can change from person to person and attack to attack. Even head pain can vary and be mild to severe, throbbing or steady, one-sided or two-sided. To learn more about the varied migraine symptoms, start here. Also, the “fairies” shown above, perfume and sunshine, are just two possible migraine triggers.

    Recently had the opportunity to take a train ride, and I can honestly say that walking on a train that’s moving at 50 – 60 mph is quite similar to the disequilibrium I experience most days. Pain is not my most common problem, it’s vestibular symptoms – affecting the balance system. It was actually rather fun just because I knew I wasn’t really on solid “ground”. ^_^
