Vacations Around Migraines

One really frustrating thing about migraines is that I often experience attacks or migraine cycles when I’m far away from home and have limited resources with me to deal with it.

My standby method is quiet, a dark room, ice packs, a comfortable place to rest, and my migraine meds. I very seldom have access to more than one or two of these when I’m on vacation. It means I have to plan for things like extra meds, a room with a fridge, a cooler for ice packs, my own pillow, and a flexible schedule. It can be frustrating to enjoy time with my family when migraine’s an uninvited guest.
