For the past 23 years, I have suffered from the AGONIZING pain of MIGRAINES.
Literally, since I was 10 years old and they are BAD!! I can’t even count how often I have had to go to the ER or at first my family doctor, for injections to end the hell I felt! I’ve used OTC products, been on preventatives for years, done the whole infusion thing, and been on EVERY migraine medication or something in those categories.
I did the altering of 34 to 36 shots in the face, neck, back of the head, shoulders and temple region for the migraine Botox therapy for over 3 years!

Sometimes, I just wanna bang my head against something until I black out or numb the pain. Nothing compares (except maybe a few of the 37 surgeries I have had) to the horrific pain of a damn migraine- even childbirth!?! Yes, they really are that bad for me. I see lights or auras beforehand and can’t handle light once it begins.
Smells, noises, lights, and moving all suck during my migraines. I experience extreme nausea, dizziness, nausea, and vomiting! It’s unbearable!! I have yet to find anything that works and they last 5 to 7 days if untreated. I don’t want to eat, can’t sleep, and certainly don’t want to move around.
Probably the WORST thing I tried was when they had “an extra-specialist” use a catheter and insert it up each nostril to deliver meds up into my sinus cavity that wore off after 30 minutes and this was after I did an ER visit the night before leading to my longest lasting 15-day long migraine.
