Imagine having a migraine headache everyday
Last updated: June 2022
If you can imagine having a headache everyday for the last 27 months I have had it. It is a daily struggle with my headaches. I had a stroke January 2009 and I have had headaches everyday since. Not just regular headaches Migraines (Aura Migraines) I get one at least 6 times a week and let me tell you; Nothing works except for a cold dark room and sleep. I think in the last 27 months I have slept more then in my entire life time. I am 41 years old and I do not know what I am going to do. In 1990 and in 2006 I suffered a TBI and in 2003 and 2009 I suffered from a stroke.
Last night scared the living crap out of me when I started out having the aura in my right eye I knew I had just enough time to get my ice pack out of the freezer and get into bed but by the time I got to the freezer I had no vision out of my right eye. I WAS BLIND IN ONE EYE.
That totally freaked me out and I had no idea what to do. So I got the ice pack and went into the bedroom and laid down on the ice pack and fell asleep. when I got up this morning both my eyes hurt like someone punched me.
Do you have a migraine toolbox for when an attack hits?
