Migraine- The Constant Struggle
Last updated: January 2015
I am currently a final year Pharm D student. I had my first attack when i was 8 years of age, I had severe episodes of vomiting and a very bad headache. Then, as i grew up, it got worse, I had so much vomiting that i used to get dehydrated and needed some IV fluid to replenish the lost fluids.
Throughout my college, it remained a constant challenge and struggle, every morning, i thought, i wont be able to get this degree but then despite the throbbing pain,and off course with some prescription medications, i managed my professional education and now i am in my fifth and final year.
But people do not get this that you have chronic migraine and you are unable to do a certain task assigned to you.
So, yes its a struggle, a life long struggle!
Are the family and friends you will be seeing this holiday season understanding about migraine?
