Let’s talk #MIGRAINES. It’s Monday and I’ve got a screaming migraine. My second in 3 days. Botox isn’t until 8/31 and my lovely insurance denied the authorization for the breakthrough medication. 🤬 I’m having so much trouble thinking that I forgot my coffee in the house. Then I was on the road and had to go back home for my laptop. Oh, and I realized that I forgot my office keys in the truck after getting to the office door. 🤦‍♀️😩 It’s a light makeup, frizzy hair kinda day. Question: who else gets weakness on one side and confusion/dizziness with their migraines? #chronicmigraine #chronicmigraineawareness #chronicpain #chronicillness #chronicpainrelief #botoxtreatment #botoxformigraine #makeup #makeupaddict #makeuplover

Did you know Julius Caesar was thought to have suffered from migraine headaches? While best known for being a Roman general and statesman with various political achievements, it is also believed that Caesar suffered from frequent migraine headaches. In particular, many speculate he had aura with his suspected migraines including features such as dizziness and visual disturbances.

Another day, another doctor’s office waiting room. That’s life with a chronic illness. But today’s appointment with my neurologist helped me realize how much progress I’ve made in the past year. And I wanted to share this good stuff with you. ⁣ ⁣ It’s been almost a year since I started on two of the new anti-CGRP migraine medications. Before this, I had just been trying my best to deal with life as I knew it—which basically consisted of a 24/7 headache. My pain wasn’t as bad as it was in the years before my CSF leak treatment, but it was still significant and made life hard. ⁣ ⁣ After starting on my new meds, I began to have hours in the day without a headache. This was huge for me. The next time I met with my neurologist and let her know about the progress I was making, she suggested that I also try Botox for migraines. ⁣ ⁣ She said in her experience, she’s seen Botox be really effective for people who also respond well to the anti-CGRP meds. So I decided to give it a try. She said it can take months to see the peak effect and I’m really happy to share that after about 6 months of treatment, I’m now having full DAYS without a headache. ⁣ ⁣ This is life-changing for me and I feel like I’m in a better place than I’ve been in for the past 20 years. It’s done wonders for my mental health too. I feel happier and more hopeful than I have in a long time. It’s been a really long journey and so many treatments have failed over the years, but I’ve finally found something that works for me. ⁣ ⁣ I wanted to share this to encourage anyone else struggling with health issues to keep fighting. I always held onto a little sliver of hope that one day a treatment would be developed that would actually help my constant head pain. Today, I can finally say that’s happened. And I want you to remain hopeful that it can happen for you too. ⁣ ⁣ This road we chronic illness warriors walk is hard for sure, but things can get better. Keep fighting to see that day.

This is my reality... I currently lose between 12 and 36 waking hours every single week because of chronic and vestibular migraines. But I won't let it beat me. I'm posting here from my bed, resting after the latest one has finally started to lift and planning how I'm gonna make up for my lost time. Chronic illnesses are sh*t. But this one won't beat me.

Happy Wednesday from a new red-head. So since my previous post, where I was going on about how much better I am and how much my life has changed, I’ve hit a low point. I’ve had a headache non stop for the last 12 days. I’ve been feeling the worst I’ve ever felt. I have my NHS neurologist appointment on Monday which I’ve waited so long for. So I’m hoping something positive comes from it. But never giving up hope. 🤞 I hope everyone is doing well ❤️ #chronicillness #chronicmigraineawareness #chronicdailyheadache

... feeling dizzy and nauseous today, on the third day... 👎🏻 My feeling is that this #migraineattack was sadly triggered by a few minutes of yoga, which I did the day before.. I used to dance for ours in a row. Physical training has always been very important to me. Now, even a few minutes of gentle yoga can trigger an attack 🤕🤢 👍🏻 There are good aspects to recognise, too.. This attack came after the longest break I've ever had so far: 17 days 🙏🏻 Also, for the first time since I have started to suffer from #chronicmigraine, the WIND on this beach has NOT triggered an attack (this was a few days before my current attack). Perhaps, the latest drug I am on - Candesartan - has been able to give me some relief 🤲🏻 I am #grateful for that. I wish you all a pain and symptoms-free day 💜

Happy Thursday! I missed a few days this week due to pain and being glutened last weekend. I have been so good about gluten since my celiac diagnosis that I forgot what happens when I eat it (accidentally). Holy s*%t. No more eating at questionable restaurants for me! If you’re wondering why I would take such a chance when I travel, legitimate question. I get extremely anxious about where I can eat - to the point where everyone around me feels my anxiety. And they can’t eat where they want to either. It’s not fun. SO my future goal is to eat at “safe” restaurants when possible and have food with me that I can eat when I can’t. It’s really difficult to do that when you’re traveling, but I’m hoping to start with having protein powders and bars with me to start…. Staying in places where I can cook helps too…. I read a blog once where the person literally admitted to doing a lot of fasting while traveling with celiac. More power to them, but I can’t do that since fasting is a migraine trigger for me. In the meantime, eat gluten-free cake when it’s available, because. Yum! #ChronicPain #ChronicMigraine #Migraine #Celiac #IntractablePain #IntractableIllness #ChronicMigraine #SpoonTheory #ChronicIllness #MigraineAndHeadacheAwareness #Headache #MigraineRelief #MigraineAwareness #Migraines #MigrainesSuck #InvisibleIllness #Pain #MigraineWarrior #Spoonie #Health #MigraineSupport #HeadacheDisorders #HeadacheDisorderRelief #ClusterHeadache #ClusterHeadacheAwareness #ChronicMigraineAwareness #ChronicPainTravel #GlutenFreeTravel #ChronicMigraineTravel #MigraineTravel #CeliacTravel

I haven’t been able to throw much pottery due to chronic daily migraine. I, of course, plan to get back to throwing pottery. I can’t imagine a life without pottery! But in the meantime, I want to find a way to stay in the art and pottery worlds despite chronic migraine. Pottery always centers me. Calms me. Gives me a sense of accomplishment, purpose, drive, confidence. To see a ball of clay become a vase (or anything) can feel truly magical. And that’s a process I always want to be a part of. • • • #wheelthrown #wheelthrownpottery #wheelthrowing #wheelthrownceramics #pottery #potterylife #raw_community #chronicmigraine #chronicmigraineawareness #chronicmigrainewarrior #migraineawareness #migrainewarrior #themigrainepotter #cremerging

I’m inspired to get back into photography, but this time as a means to cope with chronic illnesses AND mental illness. I’ve been away from my photography in part due to disabling chronic daily migraine. On top of this, I was also diagnosed with fibromyalgia, occipital neuralgia, and new daily persistent headache (NDPH). I’m going to be using a mix of old and new photos to try to raise awareness of these chronic conditions. And hopefully to build a community of people who can understand and support one another. We can all use community and support. And from following various accounts, I know the chronic illness community is a welcoming one. I want to talk about and document my journey through all of this in hopes it can help others feel less alone. • • • #chronicmigraineawareness #chronicmigraine #migraineawareness #migrainewarrior #chronicillnessawareness #occipitalneuralgia #ndph #fibromyalgiaawareness #dailymigraines #raw_community #raw_allnature #inittogether

Ces deux photos ont été prises la même journée. En général, je ne montre que la première. Le verso, je le garde pour moi. Je fais partie des gens qui souffrent d’algie vasculaire de la face (AVF), une affection neurologique qui se manifeste sous forme de céphalées ultra aiguës dont le surnom – parlant – est la migraine du suicide. Quand vous me croisez, me parlez, vous n’en savez rien – sauf si vous avez lu mon livre Anomalie des zones profondes du cerveau (Grasset, 2015). J’ai de la chance, l’AVF s’invite chez moi de loin en loin, je peux l’oublier de longs mois, voire des années. D’autres ont des crises quotidiennes, et ces personnes là sont mes héros, mes héroïnes, je leur envoie toute mon affection et mon soutien. On préfère partager des images glorieuses, souriantes, mais on mérite mieux. On mérite mieux que de croire – ou faire semblant de croire – que la vie est lisse, sans accrocs. Non, elle ne l’est pas. « Life is not neat », comme l’écrivait B.S. Johnson. On vit, on aime, on crée avec toutes ses contradictions. On mérite d’apprendre à ne pas craindre son démon, son enfer personnel, à ne pas en avoir honte. Chacun, chacune a le sien. On mérite d’aimer nos blessures et qu’elles soient aimées. On mérite d’aimer nos vulnérabilités, et tout ce qui n’est pas instagrammable. Donc aujourd’hui, je vous offre mon Enfer personnel. Et quel que soit le vôtre, sachez que je l’accueille par principe inconditionnellement, avec tendresse. L’algie, je ne la hais pas, je ne la crains plus, ça fait vingt ans qu’on se connaît. Évidemment, je m’en passerais volontiers… mais elle rend toutes les minutes où elle s’absente précieuses. Elle attise mon appétit de tout. Je suis un ogre déterminé et joyeux, et j’aurai sa peau – en tout cas pour un moment. Comme toujours. #clusterheadache #algievasculairedelaface #forza #chronicmigraineawareness #💪 #invisibledisability

When it comes to migraine prevention sometimes people think that all you have to do to prevent a migraine attack is take your medication consistently and it will cure you of all your migraine pain. Medication helps some people prevent and lessen the severity of attacks but medication is only one thing that prevents a migraine and there are so many other factors that migraineurs have to consider. Migraine prevention can be tricky and its not only the medication that keeps pain away but its also the lifestyle changes we have to make.

Have you heard about CGRP? This is a hot topic in headache medicine as far as the role CGRP plays in various headache conditions and specific therapies targeting this molecule both to prevent and acutely treat headache. This multi-part series will aim to explore the ins-and-outs of CGRP to hopefully offer a greater understanding of this topic and why it matters! Before we can get into the more juicy details, its best to start with the basics - what in the world does CGRP even stand for? CGRP stands for "Calcitonin Gene-Related Peptide." This is a peptide that is secreted and stored in the central nervous system. It is involved in a variety of signaling pathways, including pain. Tune in next month to learn more about why this matters and how it has been used in targeted treatments for various headache conditions. Want to learn more now? If you are in the Phoenix area, consider calling or emailing our office to schedule a consultation with one of our headache specialists.

Leave a 🧠 in the comments if this sounds like you. Chronic migraine is physically, mentally, and emotionally draining 😤 The World Health Organisation recognises severe migraine as disabling as active psychosis, severe depression, and quadriplegia. Migraine is not just a headache! Here at Cefaly UK, we know firsthand how exhausting and debilitating chronic migraine is and we want to remind anyone struggling that none of this is your fault. We see your pain and how hard you are trying to feel better.

Well todays head injection appointment turned out a bit different…. I got no injections today🎉 as I’m now away to try a new monthly injection I inject myself with, starting soon🫣🤯 (no chance my darling hubby will help😂😂) My consultant gave me a MOT due to my collapsing spells which seem to be pain related so I had to go get an ECG today as well and he’s referring me for a head MRI Scan🤯 #chronicmigraines #chronicmigraineawareness #healthmot

Any other Suits fans out there? Not sure about you but I’ve not seen any other mainstream show (other than those based on medical fields, of course) even remotely bring up a non-apparent illness unrelated to the shows actual plot, let alone migraine. I appreciated how they worked this in for Katrina’s character while highlighting the impact migraine has on a career & reputation. From her running late to work, sunglasses, neck rubbing, facial expressions & Hegu pressure.. I could put myself in that character’s shoes.

Who you are goes beyond any health condition you may have. It's a reminder that while a disease may impact your life, it's just a part of you and not your entire identity. So, while living with migraine disease is a challenge, it's important to remember that it's only one aspect of your life story, and that doesn't limit your potential or worth.

⚠️: discussion of anorex!a (no numbers or details) Living with chronic migraine and anorex!a feels like there's something actively working against your migraine management. Anorex!a basically doesn't allow you to have the 'migraine lifestyle‘ that professionals and advocates recommend. Living with migraine and anorex!a feels extremely hopeless.. Little disclaimer: this won't be a scientific post talking about how anorex!a affects glucose and how glucose affects migraine and things like that. (maybe for a different post) Since there isn't really a lot of information about migraine and anorex!a this post will be based on my own experience (without going into detail of course) I might even make a part two in the future because this post obviously won't include every single way migraine and anorex!a can affect each other. If you have anorex!a - or any other ED - and migraine, please feel free to share your own experience. (Without triggering details) First of all, what is migraine? To make it short: migraine is a complex neurological condition with a variety of symptoms including head pain, light, smell and sound sensitivity, dizziness, nausea, brain fog. fatigue etc… Migraine exists on a spectrum, some people might experience symptoms only a few times a month, while other people might experience symptoms every single day.

🌙 Light Sensitivity 🌙 Let’s share as a community all we do to manage light sensitivity. Share in the comments below or DM me and I can comment it anonymously if you’d prefer. What I do for light sensitivity: I wear my Avulux/Axon Optics as needed. I wear sunglasses if I’m going to be outside or in my car. I use my Allay Lamp (green light therapy) when I’m able to. I’ll even read or journal via the green light. If I can, I’ll close my eyes and put heat on them. If this pattern of light sensitivity increases, I’ll probably try very very gradual exposure to light without my migraine glasses on. I try really hard to not wear my sunglasses inside because I don’t want my light sensitivity to worsen. I’ll often dim the lights when I’m at home. When I’m in a situation where I can’t avoid light, I’ll focus on my breath. It doesn’t erase the pain or pressure or awfulness my eyes and head and entire being are feeling, but it can calm my nervous system and get me out of that heightened sympathetic state. My light sensitivity has gotten SO much worse lately. I’m light sensitive when with sunglasses on right now. I forgot to bring my Avulux when I went to CVS, and my migraine attack started spiking into the 🔴. I’m in my car (parked), and the pain and pressure are calming down into the 🟠 as I wear sunglasses because of the sunlight. I chose this photo for this topic because I wish it could be night time right now. And I’m sure I’m not the only one. Let’s talk about light sensitivity today. • • • #lightsensitivity #lightsensitive #migrainelife #chronicmigraine #chronicmigraineawareness #chronicmigrainelife #chronicillness #chronicillnessawareness #chronicillnesswarrior #migrainesupport #fibromyalgia #occipitalneuralgia @avulux @axonoptics @allaylamp

Migraine doesn’t only affect us during an attack. Especially people with chronic migraine will almost always experience some symptoms. Yes, it IS “that bad.” When we have to stay at home because of a migraine attack, we’re not relaxing in bed enjoying ourselves, we lie in bed wishing we could get a new brain. We wake up not knowing if we’ll be able to function that day - or if we’ll even be able to leave the bed. There’s NO cure for migraine. So PLEASE STOP taking advantage of desperate migraine sufferers trying to sell them a CURE to a condition that does NOT have one! Migraine isn’t an excuse. We’re serious when we say we can’t leave the house or bed - it’s not an excuse. ‪Excruciating pain, intense nausea, vomiting, dizziness and vertigo, visual disturbances, brain fog, anxiety, neck pain, eye pain, light, sound and smell sensitivity and much more…‬We’re suffering - it’s not an excuse. Migraine can affect our mental health. ‪People with migraine are about 5 times more likely to develop depression compared to people without it.‬ 50% of people with migraine experience at least one type of anxiety disorder in their lifetime. PTSD occurs in 21.5% of people with migraine. Migraine is an invisible illness, although if you look closely, it certainly becomes visible. We face stigma. Migraine is still very misunderstood. People think of it is a headache that everyone gets sometimes instead of a complex neurological disease. For this reason, people tell us to “just push through” or to “just take a painkiller” or that “everyone gets headaches” or that “migraine isn’t a reason to stay at home” instead of recognizing the fact that it can be an extremely disabling condition. We can do everything right and avoid every trigger and still get an attack - it’s not our fault.

I haven’t been on as much because my phone started to make me intensely nauseous and/or have head pain within 30-60 seconds of using it this week. Does that happen to anybody else here? I’m trying out using a bigger device to post to and be on IG, respond to texts and messages, etc., hoping I can feel a little less limited right now. I feel very limited in all I can do. I’ve been spending more and more time in a dark room with my Allay Lamp on just reading a hardcover book to avoid being on my phone and hope I can lessen the pain and nausea, and any other symptoms. I meet with my headache specialist today. I’m hoping he has some suggestions and/or an explanation as to why things are just getting worse with my migraine disease lately. I’m hopeful for this appointment though. I’m trying to remember that there ARE still options left to try. But I’ll admit, it is really hard to be patient and wait the 3-ish months it takes to often trial these medications. Chronic illness definitely impacts mental health. So I’m trying hard to focus on taking care of myself physically and mentally.
