My migraines have ruined my life. I always feel foggy and slow. I jumble my words up. I have blinding pain that makes me hide away from my loved ones. I am asked every day by my loved ones how my head is feeling. 8/10 times i have a migraine or am recovering from one. I want children but I pushing 40 and I honestly am worried about passing this pain onto someone else. I wish I could have one day where I feel normal. I've never felt normal though. Even without the migraines I have been a weirdo my whol life. I felt emotions too hard and and I was always a nervous wreck. I feel like I could turn off a switch on my head and not be me anymore but a lot of people will be hurt by that. I have to be away from my family to change. This is a journal entry. I'm sorry

That sounds really horrible what you are going through. This life is just so cruel and unfair and I’m sorry that you suffer so much. To me it is awful how so many health conditions even exist. I hope that you find relief from pain.

Have you tried a treatment to reduce their frequency and intensity? What are you taking when a migraine occurs? Maybe i can help. Have migraines as well. They were very severe at the debut( at 24 yo) but with treatment they are rare now and a lot less intense.

I have migraines too. fortunately mine is very controlled due to the many lifestyle approaches I use.

have you tried a dietary approach? I heard that reducing omega 6s (by stopping to consume all seed oils and ultra-proccessed products that contain them. seed oils are toxic sludge!), increasing omega 3s (by starting to consume fatty fish or supplementing with fish oil or algae-based supplements), reducing carbohydrates in general (especially the refined ones, like flour and sugar), and increasing sodium consumption (yes, you read it right. people with migraines seem to benefit from extra salt consumption) can help.

you don't have to change your diet too much, just a few tweaks could do the job. like swapping margarine for butter, swapping soybean oil for lard/tallow or coconut oil, cutting all junk food and eating more fatty fish, etc...

all products that cite "vegetable oil" as an ingredient, likely have a seed oil like soybean oil. by just stating "vegetable oil", it's likely to be a seed oil, due to the fact that it's cheaper. because if they had a fruit oil like coconut oil or olive oil, they would state it, to advertise the product.

most junk "food" (food-like) products are... junk.

but also, a more drastic approach, like a whole food based, very low carb diet, like the ketogenic (keto) diet or the carnivore diet, can help tremendously, especially if you have the support of a professional while you're doing it. people have cured their migraines by going carnivore, check those guys at Revero Health, they're great.

also there are other stuff as well, like sleeping well, avoiding dehydration, avoiding too much stress, too much light and too much heat...

all migraines can be cured.

I use sumatriptan and phenergan for attacks. Propranolol for prevention. I've done the injections which didn't work and made my hair fall out. I'm sorry you had to go through that

I remember keto does make me feel better. I tend to turn to junk when I am stressed. I will try this approach again

had migraines as a child and in my youth Avoid certain foods when you have a migraine Because of your migraine, you should definitely avoid food. Basically, you are better off avoiding alcohol, caffeine and nicotine
or take a hot wet towel and put it on your eyes its elp me

So sorry Propanolol didn't work out for you. It was what i took for 1 year to diminish mines and with good result. The other route is trying certain antidepressants.

I'm on zoloft and I forgot to mention I am also on nortriptyline. I think as bad as I am going to miss my carbs and junk it might be time to be an adult and take care of my body just so I can tolerate life
ganja joint s helps also
100% when it is so bad I can't sit up I go for that

I'm having a mild migraine right now. Thank "god" for Sumatriptan. I'm so very sorry for you. It's a really debilitating condition to have. I've read that some people smoke weed and that helps them with migraines. Maybe you could try that if you haven't yet.
