Migraines and Fibromyalgia

As a fibromyalgia patient advocate and educator, I work with people who suffer from Migraine disease every day. In fact, up to half of all fibromyalgia patients are also Migraineurs. In addition, one of my closest friends has lived with Migraines her whole life. I’ve seen the pain etched on the face of someone in the midst of a Migraine attack. I’ve seen how debilitating Migraines can be and how much they disrupt lives.

So, although I’m not a Migraine patient myself, I have a great interest in continuing to learn all I can about Migraine disease and how to help those who suffer with it. While I don’t pretend to know what it feels like to have a Migraine, as a fibromyalgia patient, I do understand what it’s like to live with debilitating pain every day.

I’m very glad to have found this site both for my own education and so I can share it with the Migraineurs I work with. God bless you in your efforts to help.

    Karen,

    -:¦:-•*Welcome to Migraine.com!*•-:¦:- It’s so good to see you here.

    You’re such a wonderful patient advocate. I’m glad you’re joining us to keep learning, and I’m sure you’ll be teaching us about fibromyalgia and other conditions that you know about that are so often comorbid to Migraine.

    I sure agree with Jamie. You are one of the most important kinds of people in our lives – the ones who take it upon themselves to learn the truth about Migraine disease and support their loved ones. Bless you Karen, your friend and the fibro patients you work with are very lucky to have you in their lives 🙂

    You rock, Karen. Our “Migraine allies” are stupendous, and you, of course, being a wonderful advocate, educator, and person, are such a great asset for Migraineurs to have on our sides!
