From 20+ migraine days a month to 6...
I will try to make this short, but thought it would help to share how I managed to cut the frequency of my migraines to 1/4 the amount.
I am 27, and a mother to two rambunctious kids, ages 3 and 5. I've had migraines for 20 years now this year. Being 7 with an occasional migraine wasn't fun, but it was better than last year. I had severe migraines almost every single day.
At 24 I had a MRI done to confirm that it was "just a migraine" and not some underlying horror.
So at 26, I didn't expect them to get to the point that I couldn't function. I knew my triggers and avoided all of the avoidable ones. I cut every ounce of caffeine, sugar, fake sugar, yeast, alcohol, etc.... Yet even without hormonal spikes or weather changes, I was still bed bound. Medication has never helped me. I also drink plenty of water. My kids needed me.
I decided to try the daith peircing, and I went 24 days migraine free! Then hormones took over and I had a mild migraine that lasted 22 hours. I was so happy that I could still move and be a mom.
It has been 10 months, and I now only get mild to moderate migraines when I am ovulating and during my period. The total days per month is now at a steady 6. Weather doesn't effect my migraines anymore. Stress does, but not as severely unless I already have the start of one coming on. I have only had one severe migraine.
I highly recommend getting the daith piercing, but still hydrating and avoiding triggers.
My next step is going to be trying cbd oil to see if I can be migraine free without side effects.
