This will be a long post and I plan to do a more explanatory video later but I'm post op less than 1 day. This lead photo was about 7 hrs post op yesterday. So for those who know me, you know I suffer from terrible, debilitating, chronic migraines. For the past 17 years, they've ruled my life and I've lost so much LIFE. I missed out on so much but never gave up hope to find a "cure". If you suffer from migraines or know someone who does, please read on. I find this kind of stuff fascinating and hopefully it's helpful for someone else suffering. This is not medical advice (please consult your own doctor) but just my personal experience.
First off, I have tried everything. I have mthfr so my body is about 70% deficient in detoxification. So perfume, fragrance, msg, chemicals, preservatives, sulfur and a slew of other things my body can't break down so I get deathly sick when exposed. I'll get the same symptoms as bad food poisoning (fever chills, vomiting, feeling like sh*%). And of course, these things cause trouble migraines for me. I'll have people say, "oh, you have a headache? " and I'm like "no!". Migraines are totally different. It's like someone punching your brain, jabbing your eye, piercing your skull. It's the worst stomach flu, food poisoning, brain freeze all together lasting hours, days or weeks. So what have I tried over the years? 2 PCPS, 1 naturopath, 2 ophthalmologists, 2 optometrists, 3 neurologists, allergy specialist, endocrinologist, gastroenterologist, OB-gyn, MRI, CT scan, x-rays, acupuncture, cupping, botox, dysport, 6+ prescription strength migraine medicine including anti- depressants, massage, complete diet overhaul, food elimination, allergy studies, sleep studies, TMJ therapy, toradol injections (1-3 times / month), detoxing, living clean, juicing, exercise, physical therapy, a funny ear suction device, CBD, THC, OTCs and more. Usually, when I mention I have migraines someone will be like, "I know someone who knows someone who gets migraines and they do this and this" so I'm listing above just so you know everything I've tried. I almost considered nerve decompression surgery that is VERY invasive with only a 50/50
