This is now my 30th year of migraines, I get them nearly every day! I have tried tonnes of different medications over the years with no luck yet. The hardest part for me is that I'm a full time carer to my son and I can't always take triptans when I need to because they knock me for 6 for at least 2 hours and if I have to drive to hospital or doctors then it becomes a dilemma. But over the last few months I have tried using specifically made glasses that help with the light sensitivity enabling me to still drive with less pain. Sometimes I've worn them at the start of a migraine and it's got to the point a few times where I could cope with the pain without a triptan. My eyes give a sigh of relief when I'm wearing them! They don't cure my migraines just help me to live a better life sometimes without as much pain. I don't go anywhere without them now, even in Tesco's I get funny looks as I'm walking round the aisles. Well worth the £65 from mediview.
Also on my phone I have a privacy screen protector which is supposed to stop other people seeing what you are doing on the phone, but the benefit to me is it stops the glare off the screen. Looks blooming horrible if your used to a crisp clear picture on your phone as it has like a pixel effect. But I find using my phone easier now.
I would like to know if there are any other ways to help with the light sensitivity?
