Migraine Service Dog: Migraine Alert Dog

A migraine service dog (migraine alert dog) is life-changing for Hannah Shelton. She is a girl who needs the assistance of a migraine service dog and needs help in the finances associated with it. When I first started blogging I wanted a creative outlet that allowed me to tell my story. In order to better…

Medication doesn’t work every time in the same way

The thing about migraines is that there is no cure and there is no medicine that works for everyone.  The even crazier thing is, there is not a medicine that works every time even if you are lucky enough to find something that works for you.  It’s constantly a guess and check and experiment game.…

Headache Hat Review for Cold Therapy

Best Migraine Hat: Headache Hat Review

The best migraine hat has arrived!  When the Headache Hat first was sent to me for a review, I was going to write about it at the end of the week.  Well, the holidays came and went, and here we are.  I am glad I waited because it showed me how often I am using…

Juicing for Migraine: Does it Work?

Juicing for migraine can help heal me or trigger my migraine.  Lack of food is a migraine trigger. Fruits and vegetables are healing. Although, many people are triggered by citrus and other foods in which I am not.  There is not rule for natural migraine remedies when each body is so different.  It is best…

Medicine vs Migraine Diet, My quest to find a balance

I saw my migraine surgeon and after speaking with him, I decided to reconsider another surgery.  I find myself, again, desperate enough to consider it with hopes of long lasting lowered intensity, duration, and frequency of my migraines.  While I’m considering this, I am also trying to be more well rounded in my ideas of…

Ice vs Heat for Migraine Treatment

Icing and heating are common practices in treating Migraine but what method is best?  Well, like everything else, we are all different and I use both at different times for different reasons.  When I was pregnant there was not a time in my first trimester that I was not doing one or the other.  I…

Finding Quality Care while having an illness

This week I had a neurologist appointment.  Surprise, surprise.  I feel like I’m always there.  I have been going to the same place for over a decade and just love them.  They have saved me during holidays, major events and supported me through a tough and arduous journey with my migraines.  As I sat and…

Migraine Visual Disturbance: Visual Aura

Migraine visual disturbance is something I live with often due to aura. This time of year, I easily get fooled by tiny gnats. We have a lovely garden and constantly have fresh fruits and vegetables in our kitchen.  I see small black dots and am uncertain what it is.  My blood pressure runs extremely low…

Migraine Smell Aura and Visual Disturbances

When it comes to migraine, smell aura is one of the strangest symptoms I get. Last weekend, I went shopping. When I went to checkout, I was overcome by the smell of gas.  I cautiously asked if anyone else smelled gas. I didn’t want to induce chaos from people fleeing the store from a gas…
