I am 53 and really sick of my migraines. I have been getting them since I was a little kid. I remember being about 4 or 5 and hiding in the hall closet to get away from light and sound. All through grade school I would ask to see the nurse and was always scolded as being dramatic and lying to get out of class! It wasn't until I was 18 and found my own doctor that I was diagnosed with migraine. The headaches have gotten progressively worse as I age. I have tried everything; diets, drugs, meditation, acupuncture, yoga, herbal supplements, vitamins, and the last 'wonder drug' Botox. Did not work. I am a traveler, hiker, organic food eating omnivore who doesn't drink, etc. Right now I'm in day 4 of a pain scale headache that has been anywhere from a 3.5 to a 5.5. I lose about 10-20 days a month to pain. My next 'try' is CBD oil. I hope it helps. Anyone out there had any luck with it?
