Migraines-Do You Get Them?
Updated: May 5, 2022
Migraines are neurological conditions that can cause multiple symptoms. Often, it results in intense, debilitating headaches. Some symptoms include nausea, vomiting, difficulties speaking, numbness and tingling, and sensitivity to light and sound. Migraines are prone to running in families and can affect anyone at any age.
Pain does not appeal to a girl like me. Nobody likes pain, but I have a very low tolerance for it. I especially don't like it when I'm sick. Getting migraines is my #1 all-time dislike. The migraines started when I was in the 6th grade, and they always came out of nowhere. Whenever I was getting one, either I would see swiggly lines or my vision would become blurry. Until I was older, I didn't realize how much I had to watch what I ate, drank, my body temperature, smells, or anything else that might trigger a migraine for me. It was then that I realized what was causing my migraines. Changes were necessary. No caffeine, no chocolate, no cream cheese - no migraines. Sometimes I am greedy and suffer the consequences, but it's never worth it, so I've slowed down as difficult as it may be.
I have also learned to take something as soon as I am aware I will get one. My headaches can range from severe to mild at times. If you suffer from migraines, this may help. You can better manage your headaches by identifying what triggers your migraines.
