Hormonal Migraines

My migraines started in my mid-twenties as menstrual migraines and quickly progressed in severity and frequency (12 days per month at their worst).

It is now 13 years later and I have managed to have 3 beautiful children despite my migraines and the majority of my days are happy and pain-free. I currently have about 6 migraine days per month and hormones remain my primary trigger.

I have tried many preventatives across the years but the only thing that has helped me is biofeedback/neurofeedback. This week I try Botox for the first time so I am hopeful.

Raising three small children while suffering from migraines is extremely challenging but I am thankful for the love and support of my family. My biggest wish is that my children never feel this kind of pain and that they did not inherit this disease.
