57 Years of Migraines
Tomorrow my first-borne will be 57. I had pre-eclampsia when I was pregnant with him. I hemorrhaged at 5 months and apparently lost a twin because there were 2 placentas when he was born at 7 months. He was 4lbs 7oz, but went down to 3lb 14 oz. He had trouble maintaining his body temperature and was in an isolette for one month. My blood pressure was dangerously high. It took many different meds to sort of stabilize it. It's still very labile.
I have more days in a month with headaches of varying intensities then not. I also have MARCONS, MCS, MCAD, Hashimoto's/hypothyroidism, chronic Lyme, CIRS (mold disease), parasites, MTHFR (heterozygous), estrogen dominance, lead toxicity, etc. The headaches are the worst. I am 76 & wonder what life would be like w/o migraines. (My son has had them infrequently)
BTW, my dad died at 35 of complications of epilepsy. Epilepsy is in the same MTHFR pathway as migraines. I wonder if there is any connection between the two?
