A Lifetime of Hemiplegic Migraines
I always suffered with migraines whenever there were strong smells around. As a toddler I rarely cried and told my parents that crying made my head hurt.
I had my first hemiplegic migraine when I was 23 years old. I eventually found that my trigger was Old Jamaican Ginger Ale. Strangely, I can eat ginger without any problems but the particular strain of Ginger that is in that drink triggers them 100% of the time.
Around 2003 I had a cardiac ablation to fix a rapid heart rate. Since then they have become more and more common to the point that they are almost continuous.
I am still looking for a medication/treatment that helps :(
