How have your migraines changed your life?

For me, apart from the obvious, I have more compassion for others and more patience. I've learned to be more reasonable with how I use my resources as well.

You're not alone! Actress, Marcia Cross also suffers from debilitating migraines that makes working a struggle. More than 36 million Americans suffer from this disease and it needs to have the attention it deserves!

I have suffered with #fibromyalgia for as long as I can remember and it affects me daily, I feel more of a 92 year old then a 29 year old, the simplest of tasks can leave me in excruciating muscle and joint pain - it's not just sore muscles you get with fibromyalgia, it causes fatigue, stiffness, poor sleep quality, nausea, brain fog, headaches and migraines, IBS problems and the slightest touch can be excruciating; so I've decided to watch Lady Gaga's Netflix documentary on her battle with fibromyalgia and see what it's all about. Has anyone else watched it? 💜

Had an MRI today and finished my clinical trial with Allergan. I don't directly know if I got the placebo or not. However, each time I had a migraine and I took the medicine, which is a monoclonal antibody, my migraine went away within two hours without any side effects.
This medicine blocks the function of a small protein that widens blood vessels and helps transmit pain signals throughout the body. This protein is called CGRP.

Monoclonal drugs are made from living cells. They are expensive to produce and they’re expected to have hefty prices. In fact, some of the priciest drugs on the market today are monoclonal antibodies. For instance, Genentech’s Avastin, which is used to treat cancer, can cost $50,000 a year. Alexion’s Soliris, which treats a rare immune disorder, has been dubbed by Forbesas "the world’s single most expensive drug" and can cost as much as $400,000 a year.

This saving grace migraine medicine is likely to be priced around $8,000 to $10,000 a year. Other experts estimated prices as high as $20,000 a year. #migraine #migraineawareness #migrainerelief #expensive

june is migraine awareness month, and as it draws to a close, i can't help but look back on the past year and truly be in awe and gratitude of how mighty the hand of god has been on my life.
this time last year, my brain was plagued by chronic migraines. for years there were times i couldn't hear or see, days where getting out of bed was too painful to bear, and entire chunks of my memory that were lost because of this illness.
i thought that my pain wasn't worth speaking up about because people couldn't see my illness and many other people live with worse, but your pain matters.
i see you. i BELIEVE you.
your pain is real and it's valid, but don't give it the last word.
don't let others minimize your pain to the point of silence like many did to me, because your story can't be used to reveal god's glory to people if you don't speak up and share it.
i never thought i would be migraine-free. so many doctors told me that this pain would always be my story. they prescribed toxic medication after medication that did nothing but make it worse, and all i was ever told was that i'd be on those meds for the rest of my life, and for awhile i believed them, BUT GOD. #vscocam #migraineawareness

I love this and I feel like it can be applied to spoonies, especially anxiety and depression. “Of course it is happening inside your head, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”. - Just because people can’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t so ❣️🥄🎗 #harrypotter #justbecauseitshappeninginyourheaddoesntmeanitisntreal #spoonie #invisibleillness #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #ibs #ibsawareness #migraine #spoonielife #migraineawareness #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #depression #anxiety #mentalillness #spooniewarrior #spoonielove #migrainessuck #itsucks #iamaspoonie #support #quotes #fibromyalgia

Loads of traffic and plenty of time waiting on our drive home from Sydney today. Our thoughts and prayers go to the families of those hurt on the roads today. No one minded waiting as the everyone got the help they needed #roadtrip #sydney #nsw #holidays #drivesafely

Radiation has become a hot button in today's world.

We get it from hundreds if not thousands of different sources everyday from just living in the 21st century.

The one we know we need to be careful of is ionizing radiation.

This comes from things like: - X rays
- Gamma rays
- Radioactive particle radiation
Non ionizing radiation has been confusingly described as harmful and non harmful depending on where you hear it from but the studies have been out a long time on how non ionizing radiation exposure can hurt us.

Sources of non ionizing radiation include: - Microwaves
- UV light
- Radio waves

All of these sources are electromagnetic fields and some of the most common are caused by cellphones, WiFi, smart meters and fluorescent lighting.

And many migraineurs know, when cheap lighting is used, it hurts.

Most of the frequencies that flood our air are largely imperceptible to the majority of us, but that doesn't mean they are harmless.

Just like Microwaves cause food to heat up, cook and melt, other sources like radio waves cause a similar heating effect in our body.

The world health organization(WHO) has listed cellphones as possibly carcinogenic but the studies have been out a long time now.

They disrupt our highly sensitive organs and glands, affect our hormones and rhythms and can cause cellular heating that can promote cancer growth.

As a migraineur, it's imperative that you keep your sleeping area a radiation free zone or you might just be causing those morning migraines you're trying to avoid.

Simple ways to avoid electro magnetic frequencies, fields and fog (EMF) is to keep batteries and things connected to WiFi away from you and your living quarters.

You can use Faraday bags for your cellphones when you must carry them and Faraday nets for your bed to keep EMFs out for better sleep hygiene.

Remember that our body is composed of microscopic cells that react to very slight stimuli, just like our immune system can react to tiny particles of foods and trigger migraines.

Do you notice your WiFi or cellphones affect your sleep or migraines?

The leaves are changing on my tree! 😆I'm excited about the fall 🤗 How about you? 😎#fall #migraineawareness #chronicmigraines #Migrainessuck #migraineur #migraines #migraine #migrainelife #butyoudontlooksick #chronicpain #migraineaura

So maybe you don't know this yet, but there are SO many products we come into contact with that are full of chemicals and toxic ingredients.

I learned this on my journey to wellness after being diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder.

I learned this years ago but have just now begun the transition to non-toxic products. It has taken me this long because it was so overwhelming and stressful to me.

Young Living's ART skin care line has been my favorite cosmetic switch so far. My skin looks better than it has in months! Made with essential oils and NO chemicals or toxins.

I've also been super impressed with essential oil infused shampoo and conditioner from YL. My hair feels like it did when I was a kid, before I ever dyed it or treated it.

More details on my transition to all natural coming soon on the blog!

@Regrann from @migrainemagick911 - @Regrann from @migrainemagick911 - If you are feeling discomfort..this particular period can be more vulnerable for some in part due to hormone changes. Note down if your feeling susceptible these days so you can prepare & prevent future discomfort... Pre-Ovulation / Follicular Phase = Waxing Crescent / First Quarter / Waxing Gibbous Moon

The pituitary glands release follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH), which is the signal the ovaries need to get ready to ovulate.

Our physical and emotional energy is rising.

We feel more open to others and to the possibilities around us.

Our rising confidence enables us to attract more of what we desire into our lives.

We feel increasingly creative, enthusiastic and eager to make plans and put them into action-Moon School

Today is A #newmoon .But for the purpose of making you aware of your #energycycles it is a time of official beginnning of your new cycle. Just the #moon is dark right now it's pregnant with possibilities for you to #manifest. Spend some time of the next 3 days and really think and feel as it is done what you would like to accomplish this month. Jotting it down on a list and put the list in a location where it will.signal you to focus on for the next two weeks. What we put our attention on grows: good or bad. Look for feelings of more energy streaming in. The next two weeks are primed for doing. Use this forward propulsion of energy for your higher good. If you need help or more clarification of what you'd like to accomplish or how to "think & feel" to accomplish it..just tell me what you'd like to manifest below and I can give you some framework suggestions. This is FUN time to create. (If you have #chronicmigraines...a couple days before new moon seems to be a #vulnerable time for pain for many).

At this rate I’ll be stronger than the Hulk before the doctors figure out what exactly is going on. The last procedure (lumbar punch) has produced the worst head pain of my life. I look forward to the day when I have a modicum of relief. In the meantime I’m using this experience to help educate others that invisible illness and chronic pain is real and can affect ANYONE at ANYTIME. For my fellow spoonies...we got this; even if we just take it a minute at a time. #mondaymotivation #migraine #migrainelife #migraineawareness #chronicillness #chronicpain #invisibleillness #spoontheory #spoonie #positivevibes #positivethinking #positiveenergy #findingmyzen #coach #beachbodycoach #igotthis

Riding the migraine train🚂& waiting for the next stop!✋🏻 I talk about chronic migraines occasionally but I usually avoid details because it's a difficult illness to understand if you've never experienced it. Everything appears 'normal' on the outside. Plus I don't like to dwell on negatives when I had such an amazing weekend!
BUT for the sake of transparency as I share everything on social, the weekend was also a perfect storm of minimal sleep, stress of executing an event, large loud crowds, some processed food & wine combined with this humidity...BAM💥Here I am just beginning to function again after the intense pain. I should have expected it!

So today my to-do list waits, the laundry will be caught up later, the emails will get read👩🏼‍💻. And I try to ignore the frustration of wanting to go, go, go🏃 Cold packs on my head, heat on my neck, lots of drugs & fluids forces me to be still🙄
