Just so tired of migranes

So I was sufferer of migrane headaches choriclly for quite a few years. But as of recently have also become pregnant with twins I am 13 weeks and two days as of right now . Lol and I want to get the point I am actually enjoying pregnancy but with my already longgg list of physical health issues it’s not an easy thing to do and truth me told I am struggling so much so that I am taking into consideration talking to a disability lawyer. Cause my laundry list of physical and mental health issues simply gets worse and worse . And I can still get up and do things but not nearly as much as I was before . And I would struggle a lot at trying to maintain a “normal” job anymore.
Ugh I woke up this morning with my friend I spent the night cuddling lol with a mirgane that felt as if it was splitting my skull open I finally got over deal with this and now I have one again. I went to my nurologist to address this issue and they told me I could not be on medication for migrane help due to being pregnant! Yet I have read several articles stating it seems like you get more migranes when you are preggers anyway lol yay!
It never ends lol!
Ugh I am also on day three of quitting smoking and vaping and I almost grantee that the headaches are increasing some due to withdrawal symptoms as well.
Lol and I also have had a bad track record of getting tension headaches , and sinus headaches as well wondering if I could be Getting tons of stress headaches also
This would not bother me sooo much if it wernt for how painful it is! How I can go anywhere bar light of any kind , or being around sound PERIOD!
I mean I might as well just curl up in a fetal position in a deep dark light less sound less cave some where when I get migranes lol #migranes #Pregnancy #fml

Forget the Negatives. Focus on the Positives

I have abdominal migraines so doing virtual work is hard. I have to take breaks because of how bright the screen is and I tend to lose sleep trying to finish my assignments because of these breaks. But I don't care about these anymore. I'm just glad I don't have to be in bright, noisy, stressful environments trying to act like things are okay when they're not. I'm happy I get to spend time with my dog 24/7 and I'm grateful for all those working during covid! God bless you! I pray that you and your loved ones stay safe! Whoever is reading this, I hope only good things come your way!  #Staypostive #migranes

2020 - Advocacy #EhlersDanlosSyndrome #chronic

I am a Senior in the 2020 class and unfortunately the rest of my senior year and graduation has been cancelled. This is a sad time, but I am trying to make the best out of it.

My dream in life is to become an advocate for those with Invisible Illnesses and Disabilities. As someone from the community, I would love to share my story as well as inform others on the topic. I have already given a few speeches to high school students.

I have #EhlersDanlosSyndrome (Hypermobility), #PosturalOrthostaticTachycardiaSyndrome, #Lymphedema, #Costochondritis, #Anxiety, #Depression, #migranes and #ChronicPain.

I am seeking advice and help on the road to advocacy! I figured since school is out the window, now would be the best time to focus on my passion for this.

Stay safe!❤️


pediatric migraines #migranes #pediatricmigranes #Apps

My 9y/o sister had been diagnosed with pediatric migraines and we’ve started recording/tracking them using an app we found called migraines buddy; highly recommend the app.


Has Cymbalta not worked for anyone woth #Fibromyalgia?

I changed my antidepressantss to Cymbalta at the start of November 2019. I take 90mg but I just haven’t experienced a change in pain levels... in fact, I feel as though my pain has shifted from being predominantly lower body to upper body pain now. I have also started getting frequent #Headaches/#migranes that I think might be ‘referred pain’ as pain in my lower and upper back and shoulders is constant now. #Fibro


Occipital Nerve Block #2

got my second nerve block today in the occipital nerve. #hope4relief from the #migranes and only had 1 ciggerette today. one day at a time.


New Symptoms- anyone else have them with #HEDS ?

I have #EhlersDanlosSyndrome,  and lately my body has beet doing something weird:
I usually take a nap every day from 3-5pm ish. The past week I've gotten really bad headaches that prevent me from sleeping. I think they're #migranes?  I also feel nauseous, and I get flushed and hot. Then I get chills.
Does anyone else get symptoms like this? Is it something I need to tell my doctor about, or just a normal everyday EDS thing?


I’m dealing with chronic migraines and it’s starting to depress me and I just pray to not have them because I literally can’t do anything but lay down

I’m a very out going person but I feel these migraines are stealing my joy for life #migranes


Medicine for the really bad migraines #VestibularMigranes

When I’m at my worst like today, I find my moms homemade beef barley soup waiting for me in my fridge. When meds don’t work and sitting in the dark at least I know I have some really good soup with moms touch. #momssoup #naturalmedicin #migranes
