Some of you may know my story, and some of you may not. About 5 years ago around 1:00 in the morning, I woke up with a terrible migraine in the back of my head. I screamed for my dad to come in my room and I started having a huge panic attack. I was to the point where I was literally shaking because I didn't know why I suddenly started having pain. The next day didn't get any better, the migraine moved to the front of my forehead and around my eye area. I had panic attacks every single day and couldn't relax. I spent my days going to see tons of different doctors, and trying tons of different medications. None of them took my pain away. All this while being bedridden quite possibly the worst pain I've ever felt in my life. With so many questions unanswered. I had to go see a pain management doctor because there was no other options for me with my pain so high, and my anxiety through the roof. He ended up putting me on methadone. I hated taking every day because it is one of the hardest drugs for your body, and it didn't totally take my pain away. This drug had so many side effects that didn't agree with my body. I won't even mention because that would be a whole other post. Anyway, I stayed on methadone for year and a half until I couldn't take it anymore. With my prayers answered, we heard about this neurostimulator implant surgery. They put little leads into your forehead, neck, and down your back. It provides pain relief by using an implanted device that transmits mild electrical impulses. The stimulation interrupts the feeling of pain, substituting a more pleasing sensation. We went down to Texas and tried the trial surgery and it worked! So about 3-ish years ago, I did the actual surgery and... my debilitating migraines went away! Now all I had to do was get off of the methadone. After two years and two visits to the heart hospital later, my body was free from that stupid pill. The detoxing was cray! That pill left toxins and yeast in my gut that now I'm on a cleanse and STILL having to get rid of. Sure... I still suffer from migraines, and I'm having problems with my gut, and I get tired very easily. But I still have a lot of fight left in me.
