Karma came to see me.

My Sophmore year of high school I played softball with a girl who had migraines. I thought they were just like a headache but I thought she was just being dramatic and wanted attention.

My junior year I started blacking out and had dozens and dozens of test run for it but nothing showed up. January rolled around and I started having constant throbbing head pains.

I went to a neurologist and was diagnosed with chronic migraines with aura (blackout), it has been a constant fight and a painful fight with imitrex shots.

I moved to the Headache center in Jackson, MS and was giving an occipital nerve block which will last 6 months. The headaches with the nerve block are few and far between.
