I had a stroke at age 39

My name is Lisa and I'm 41.I have had migraines for 12 years.No one in my family but me have migraines and I'm the only one to have had a stroke. Lucky me lol.I used to eat pain pills like they were candy but I was lucky enough to go to the Cleveland Clinic and they got me off of pain meds.

I have to watch what I eat, MSG,and chocolate is a big no no.The weather and little sleep affects it too. It's hard sometimes with the pain but you just have to live life to the fullest one day at a time because some days are worse than others.
