Migraines Since I Was 4yrs Old

My first migraine was at a party with my parents. It came on quickly by the smell of food. I was instantly sick throwing up and my head hurt so bad alibi could do was cry. My parents took me I. One of the bed rooms with a wash rag a bucket and gave me some baby aspirin. I remember having it for several days and it worried my parents.

Fast forward 51 years and I still have these same types of migraines that are triggered by smells, barometric pressure changes, stress, and cluster headaches. They effect me on a daily basis where I cannot function, think clearly, depression and anxiety . One of these days my body wont reject so many medications.

    Hello, I know this post is 2 months old, but I just wanted you to know that you’re not alone. I have had a migraine literally every day, for as long as I can remember. For so long, I really did think that I was the only one. Yeah, people get headaches. But nobody that I knew, or read about, or heard about had them every day, from the moment they wake up, to the moment they fall asleep. Never going below a 3 or 4 (on the 1-10 pain scale). I don’t know what it would be like to not feel like this…it must be pretty great, though! I am so very glad to have found this site! It’s just nice to know that at least you’re not the only one going through some of these things! I hope you find some relief from the pain and all the other symptoms. Keep fighting!
