Crying in pain, Alone in the dark!!!!!

I remember lying in bed holding my head as it throbbed and I was so nauseous,but at that point I didn’t know it was a migraine. I had headaches a lot but not this severe I thought for sure my head was going to explode.

I was newly married and I did not want to worry my husband with what I thought was a simple headache. I tried everything i could think of but this just was not going away. How much more of this could I take I could not drive myself to the hospital and my husband was not home yet but the pain so I decided to call my PCP. After describing the symptoms he explained it was a migraine. That was my first documented migraine but hardly the last.

I am in my fifties and still suffer from those horrible migraines. I have been through a lot in my life but dealing with Chronic Migraines has been the toughest.

    i am “Lady Jane” checking and finding my story was published was the lift I needed tonight. I currently have a herniated disc in my Lumbar region of my back.
    I must admit at this point i have sent another story which was published under the author of “Sandra”. This was done to protect myself which, reading further i realize
    i don’t have to. i was afraid of what would be thought of me. I wanted to share so desperately.As i read along i grow to see we all share common ground and i will not be considered the emotional disaster as some did. Please allow me to remain in the community.
