The chiropractic physician suffering from 14 to 15 migraines per month

I am 50 years old and have been in private practice for 26 years. The day I turned 40, I experienced my first migraine.

At 41, I was having 14 to 15 migraines per month. I am a chiropractor, so I did not want to take medication. The problem was the migraines lasted 12 hours and I had to be lying down in a dark room. When I started missing 2-3 days per week of work, I needed to seek help with medication.

I had a neurologist friend that gave me Maxalt. This was a miracle drug for me. Feel the migraine coming on, take a Maxalt and in 20 minutes, no more migraine.

I worked on trying to figure out triggers, but nothing really worked in reducing the number of migraines per month. However, something extraordinary happened 3 years ago. I was diagnosed with Celiac's disease and had to go on a gluten free diet. Well, my migraines are not gone but I only have 1-2 migraines per month. It feels amazing to have the burden of multiple cluster migraines to finally be gone!

If this story helps 1 person, it's worth it to me.

Good Luck
