Migraines and Kids

In 2006. I had a car accident that left me with brain bleeds. And now suffer from migraines. I’m on amintryptaline. And on bad days I have imitrex. I usually am out for the day or two with the headaches. And sometimes vomiting. I have recently found someone who seems to understand my situation. And we plan to have a future with kids. Unfortunately I know that when the time comes I won’t be able to take my medicines. And I’m afraid I won’t be a good mom. Only because with not using medicine I can’t do anything. I’m hoping to still be able to do this.

    Hi Complicated,

    Thank you for sharing your story with us. I’m so happy for you – that sounds exciting!!

    I did want to mention that migraine disease falls on a spectrum, meaning migraine attacks can be chronic, episodic or fluctuate between the two. Hopefully yours will get better and you can move forward with your plans!
