A lifetime of migraines
I started suffering from migraines around age 16 after my car was sideswiped. That was also when my neck & back problems began. As my neck and back problems grew progressively worse over the years, my migraines seemed to increase in frequency and intensity.
The migraines make me feel as if the whole top of my head is a volcano, pulsing & waiting to erupt. I get nauseous and can't stand brightness or noise. Out of the last 7 days I have suffered 5 migraines and 1 that I caught early enough to keep it from fully developing.
Anyway... at this time in my life I can't afford health insurance, so I'm treating the migraines with OTC medicines.
These headaches can really wear me down; so if anyone has any suggestions, I'd appreciate hearing them. Thanks!
