Migraine started after a severe trauma

Last updated: April 2017

I was 12 when my migraines started. I had been raped and beaten by my stepbrother so bad that it caused me to have seizures. And I started having migraine. And still do. Stress , certain foods, msg, lack of sleep will trigger them. When I have one I can't stand lights, smells, noise, I just want to be in a cold room were in quite. I have ptsd from abuse as a child and it sometimes will trigger one. I know many of y'all can related.
