I’m in love with a woman who has migraines

My girlfriend I adore, she has had bad migraines since she was a teenager. She takes medications for it. Some are opioids. Some of them make her sick. She sleeps a lot, I wish I could take her pain away. I love and accept her as she is. Sometimes it’s hard to relate because I don’t have her pain. I see her in pain and it makes me sad. But I love her unconditionally. Her medications worry me, I wonder about her organs like her liver etc. She says the doctor said they are normal. Some days I wish I could have her pain. I’m coping the best I can. She amazes me how she copes and still smiles.

    Hi ITGUY09,

    It’s so important to have a strong support system around you when you suffer from migraine. So your support, love, and commitment mean more than you know to your girlfriend.

    Please read Katie’s excellent article under the opiods link above, it may answer some of your unspoken concerns. We have several other articles that you may want to browse on opiod use for migraine.

    If your girlfriend feels that her doctor is not helping her feel heard we do have a series of articles that can help locate a specialist in your area:

    The last thing I’d like to share is that we’re here to share support for you as well. I’d like to share – I’d like to invite you to join the conversation on both our ccaregiver’s forum and our Facebook page.
