Which Side is Your Bad Side?

Most of the time I get migraines on the right side of my head.  I’m used to these and have a higher pain tolerance for these.  However, if I start to get one on the left side of my head (aka, the bad side or the wrong side) I know I’m in for trouble!!!!!   Which side is your bad side?

Enhanced Water?

Do you put anything extra or buy water with extra ingredients to help with your migraines.   They always tell us to drink plenty of water.  So I drink a ton of water and then always buy some that has electrolytes in it.  Lately I’ve been gagging down 20 drops of Trace Minerals added to my electrolyte water in the morning.  It has a slight metallic taste to it.  So I do it like a shot and then chase it with anything that tastes decent!  It could be that I’m just having a good week, but I’ve been pretty decent this week since starting this.  I got the Trace Minerals here.FullSizeRender (006)

Pretending You Are Well?

I think we have all done this, pretending your well.   My standard answer is that I’m fine, even though I’m in pain.  Now if it’s a two Imitrex and lay down migraine, I’m not pretending I’m well.   However most days I can have a migraine and pretend like nothing is wrong.   How good are you at that?   Now that is acting!!!!

Michigan Headache and Neurological Institute

Exciting news for me!  I was recently accepted to become part of a trial for a new medicine and the Michigan Headache and Neurological Institute in Ann Arbor, Michigan.   I will be going there on the 22nd of February for my first evaluation.

If you want to find out or participate in a study go to this page and find out more details and call them!   The more research and treatment options we have the better!!!  Make life better for people with Chronic Migraines!

Since MHNI categorized me as a Chronic patient I am going to be finding out what the process is to receive Botox and get it covered by my insurance.   I will let you know what the process is and give you tips and see if it helps me and let me know if it helps you!

After my last 12-day migraine I’m willing to try anything to ease the pain and regain my life back!

If you suffer from Migraines help yourself while helping others!!!!  VOLUNTEER!!!
