Pills; shots; pain... O MY!

I have inherited the migraines we believe from my father's side. As a girl, I remember my grandmother "stretching" her neck on bad migraine days. I had more than 25 migraines a month. My quality of life was none. The shots have given my life back to me at varying degrees. Now I suffer about 10 migraines a month. They are worse though. I really wouldn't have believed that possible. The shots are very painful but if I ice the injection site prior and sweet talk myself I find it's worth the pain. I'm suffering from more colds and such I've noticed. I'm continuing the injections and praying for the best outcome possible. Good luck to all out there whom suffer as I do. It's a horrible burden to carry, the migraines, with little hope of relief.
