#fomo As I sit in the shade on the grass alone watching my #Family and relatives bask in the sun on the lake, not wanting to tell them I am in pain and ruin the fun a thought occurred to me. —
I have struggled with #chronicmigrane for a few years now. I’m on #Emgality which controls the full on attacks. However, I still constantly have the ‘minor’ symptoms. If I wear a hat or a headband that’s a little tight or hold my neck the wrong way I will have a dull droning prodome feeling headache all day. If I wear sunglasses that are the wrong prescription, or not prescription, or don’t fit my head, or are over my glasses I am in pain. It’s not excruciating, maybe a 3/10 on the scale, but it is never ending. I am an Emgality success story - please don’t misunderstand me, Emgality got me my life back after nearly a year of trying everything else. But my neurologist doesn’t see a problem because I don’t have 20 ‘migraine days’ a month anymore. But everyday I go outside or get dehydrated or get too tense is a headache day. Nat as bad, but just as persistent. I wish I knew how to get the residual symptoms to go away, but since we treated the migraines, and tested for anything else, my doctor has apparently done all she can.
