My Story

The first migraine I ever experienced was 31 years ago. I was 10, sitting in a movie theater and the worst pain I ever felt over took me. I become violently ill.

From that moment on, I have had migraines. I never not have a headache and have a full migraine at least 2 times a week.

I have been to doctor after doctor, treatment after treatment with no real relief.

After 31 years, I am still trying to find relief.

    Oh hon, I’m so sorry you’ve had to suffer for so long. Isn’t it amazing how most Migraineurs can remember the very first Migraine they ever had – every detail it seems. I think that goes to show how life changing they truly are.

    Have you been to a headache specialist Kimberlee? Have they ever tried preventive therapy with you? What about triptans or DHE? Oh dearie, I hope you’ll spend some time in our forum here and ask some questions. Even just reading what others are saying there might be helpful. There is a wealth of information available. The trick is finding the right information in the right place. You’re at the right place 🙂
