Tina's Story: How Migraine Has Changed My Life

I have been suffering from migraines since July of 2017. When they started they just kept getting worse along with Vertigo. My MRI showed the smaller vessels of my brain are diseased so I been seeing a neurologist since. We have tried medications now we are trying the b2 vitamin and oxygen therapy when when hits. I have a very hard time cognitively and physically functioning. I try my hardest to deal with this problem but it is hard.

I have migraines start up daily and once I put the oxygen on it does help but this is not how I want to live my life. I can’t go very many places because I am always am in a dark room. Once I get a bad attack that is pretty much it for me I suffer for the next 2 to 3 days. I get a two day break and boom I am hit with one again. It’s hard for me cause I don’t think very many people understand how I feel or how this has effected my life. It’s not like I can take a few aspirin or Tylenol and a few hours later I am better. My head feels as though I been in a car accident over and over again. Right now I am highly thinking I should do the injections. My dr told me I will never rid this only maybe by 50%. It’s like a nightmare and I wish people around me would understand how this has changed my life.
