I have been suffering Migraine since I was in high school, It's such a terrible pain when I get that migraine attack
It was diagnosed when I was 22 yrs old till then I just use to suffer like crazy, no meds nothing just use to bear till the attack subsided, many times I refused to go to classes cos my head use hurt like crazy & my parents used to think I was faking it.
Now I am on medication and it's under control, but when I get that attack I need a dark quiet room, I simply can not bear light & sound....no way it just worsens it. My mom too suffers from migraine & also from epilepsy(adult on set), I just feel sad when she gets those epileptic attacks...just sad...there's nothing I can do but wait till the attack is over.
I was able to identify my migraine triggers,
Hot & humid weather
Very strong coffee & chocolate
Household Pesticides (Pest Control is the worst!!)
That's my story.......any one here who suffers from migraine or cluster headache? How do you deal with it?
