My Migraine Life....

Saturday, October 31, 2020

My migraines are going to be the death of me I swear. Working is near impossible anymore. Some days I'm starving, others days I can barely eat, then there's days I'm so sick I can't eat at all. I can't function often times because of my migraines. I make myself work. But this month alone it's been near impossible, I've missed one week of work already because they make me so sick. No one understands. I get so dizzy, I can barely stand, sick to my stomach, lethargic, head pounding from hell, and so on, every sound and noise is irritating. My migraines are literally nearly 24/7. I'm at a loss. No one seems to be able to help much. I already see a neurologist, but we're not getting far right now. Right now I'm fighting being able to function day to day. Work doesn't seem to understand, they think there's a fix, a cure, except their isn't. I wish there was. I can't do this anymore. It's making me more depressed than I ever was before. I already suffer from depression, anxiety, severe carpel tunnel, and now these migraines I can't do anything about other than medication trial and error. I'm having trouble finding people who really understand, who really can help. I'm worried about losing my job over it. But I can't work like this either. Each day is unpredictable. But good note, I'm still trying to exercise when I can, and trying to eat healthier. If anyone has any experience in with migraines, I welcome any and all suggestions. Please.....

    I am so sorry to hear about your struggles. I do not suffer from migraines but I do have a good friend who does. I also have another friend who battles depression so the two of those put together are huge to learn to manage. And you are correct from what my friends tell me that few people can understand the situation unless they have gone through it. I do think that my friend who suffers from the migraine tries to manage the condition holistically along with taking medication. Patricia has asked some very good questions. emoticon

    I'm a migraine sufferer. There's nothing that will take it away when it strikes. It lasts 3 days BUT for me, it comes like every other week, only. Now, all the rest, depression, stress-anxiety, panic attacks, fibromyalgia, are part of the package we received as a whole. Unfortunately. We got it for free! I understand you, completely. All of the symptoms you have. The only hope for me were the meds and exercise which is almost impossible to do while with migraine. With age, came retirement, and yes! I could finally take it easier. I don't know if there are any support groups on the Internet or locally that you could access to help you? Or ask your care plan if they know what you can do? Who to contact?
    I hope you are able to find help, good help. emoticon
