Over the last ten years, I have experienced migraine headaches. A migraine has a way of running the show I call life.
When I suffer a migraine, I cannot endure light, noise, food, even coffee. After I’m sure the nausea et al phase has passed, I will take one OTC Excedrin Migraine tablet.
The headache and recovery time takes me about 12-hours. Afterwards I am physically exhausted, as though I had run a marathon.
In checking out the Migraine Research Foundation website, I found an incredible amount of information available. Check out some of these sobering statistics from their Facts page.
Everyone either knows someone who suffers from migraine, or struggles with migraine themselves.
Most people don’t realize how serious and incapacitating migraine can be.
I can personally relate to most of these statistics. Over the years, I’ve identified triggers that can predict, even anticipate, a migraine. Some triggers are in my control and some are not.
I considered the following migraine triggers found on the Mayo Clinic website:
Some recent feedback reminded me that I connect best with readers when sharing my experiences. As a teacher, I want to share what I continue to learn in my journey of dealing with migraines, hopefully to the point of total elimination.
Hoping you will join me on next week’s desk post when I interview a good friend, who has tried a different strategy for dealing with her migraine pains.
Until next week, keep healthy and happy.
