Migraines aren’t headaches, they are attacks

Migraines are no longer referred to as headaches, they are attacks.

Migraine attacks are the worst possible attacks that can happen to the brain. They are horrible. They are debilitating. They stop life. They destroy people. Sometimes, you even beg to die.

NO One can know the pain unless they have an attack. If you know someone who suffers from these attacks love them, help them through because you never know when the attacks may happen to you.

    Hi Lifetimegirl2000

    You’re right, these Migraines really are a type of brain attack. They are neurological in nature and go far beyond the pain we often (although not always) feel. Thank you for reminding us of that 🙂

    I totaly agree.. I have experienced everything you just said.. It’s very depressing when you get to the point of begging to die. I feel as if my life is in the hands of complete strangers (doctors) and whether they take my situation seriously enough! I have not found anyone to help me as of yet.. I hope that you find some relief soon. Praying you are having a pain free day!
