I started getting migraines when I was in middle school. I’m sure that they were hormonal mostly but sometimes I would get them other times of the month too. By the time I was in my 20s, I was getting migraines 2-3 times a week. Sometimes I could work through them, other times I could not. There was no time to lock myself in my bedroom in the dark with icepacks on my head and hoping that in a few hours it would be gone.

Back then, I did not take medicine so I would just take Ibuprofen or something similar to it. Also, I would try drinking a Coke pretty fast to get the caffeine in my system fast. Sometimes that would work but more often it did not. By my early thirties, I decided I could not take it any longer and went to the doctor to try getting medication to help. I needed to feel like this was not taking over my life anymore. I started taking preventive meds and if the preventive was not doing the job for that day.

Now I’m in my middle 40s I’m doing the same thing but getting tired. Some months the meds seem to work great and other months I get a lot more migraines. I’m ready to try something new so I’m signing up for a migraine study. I hope I will find some answers and move to a new direction, with less or no migraines at all.
