The Beginning of Aura

I’m 44 now but it started when I was 12. I was into freestyle bmx, skateboards doing tricks jumping that kinda stuff. Loved to jump and get as much air as possible. One day visiting family my cousin pulls out a pogoball. I jump and took this is cool. I’m jumping off the wall, up and down off the sidewalk. Next thing I know I’m heading to the street head first. I clipped the curb with the bottom of the pogoball and it slips from under me and throws me off balance. I fall forehead first landing on top left of my head at the hair line. Cousins freak out. I get up right away. It kinda hurt. I feel many times with my bike before but not this hard. I didn’t pass out. I get up and my cousins were I almost popped out her head. She said you have a big bump pointing to my forehead. I feel it and yup big one. I wasn’t in pain but go tell my parents. They give me aspirin and keep an eye on me. I’m good no problems. Next morning it starts. I can’t swallow. I can only sweat on right side of my body.

Then next day in the warm weather on the way home. Migraine starts. Never had before. I see bright squiggly lines with zig zags in them. Pain around my eye. Mom gives me more pain pills but don’t help. Hour later I throw up and notice the pain starts to go away. Throw up 3 more times before it’s completely gone. Ever since then when my temp goes up or get too stressed or get gassy. I get one. So every other day or so. Nothing really helps but rolaids advance. Them and CBD help the most.

    I can only imagine how frightening that must’ve been, especially at such a young age. I’m glad you’ve found a couple of things that sometimes help to take the edge off, but even still I’m very sorry for the intense pain you deal with. Thank you so much for sharing your story with us.

    Best,
    Crystal
