What Migraine Looked Like For Me on This Particular Day: #Migraineselfie #Migrainevideo

Migraine attacks are beyond tricky: they're different from person to person, and any one patient can have different symptoms from attack to attack. Here you'll see a rather unattractive video of me talking through a recent attack. My hope was not to look lovely for all the world to see, but to do a real-time description of what that particular attack was like for me on that particular day.


Have you ever recorded yourself during a migraine attack? It can be really enlightening to watch later (for instance, I watched this video on a healthy day and could see how I really do look different during an attack--it's not just my migraine brain that thinks that!). It can also help those without migraine to understand more of where you're coming from and will be one more step in fighting the stigma.

If you do create a video that you share on social media, consider tagging Migraine.com in it and use the hashtags #migraineselfie and #migrainevideo.

Thanks for your time, y'all. I hope you're feeling as well as possible today.
