I have had migraines since I was five years old, back then when I got one it lasted all day and nothing would help ease the pain it was that bad I would ask my mum to kill me!
My mum would take me to the doctor's all the time and I tried so many things in the end as I got older I just learned to manage the pain, the sooner I got to sleep the better.
But after having my children it wasn't always possible to just go to bed all day and try and sleep until the pain had gone and I started to get more and more migraines some times I would get one every day for 5 days and then I would go a month with out one. I stayed away from wine, chocolate and cheese I hadn't had chocolate and cheese for over 13 years! but I could not find anything to help ease them. It got to a point where I would not plan anything to far in advance because I would be scared that I would get a migraine while I was some where and would not be able to go home to bed.
Then by chance I found something that was a game changer for me, I had just changed my doctors and I was on some anti-depressant tablet and had to go to my new doctors for a prescription, as it was the first time I had seen this doctor he went though my medical history with me and I started telling him about my migraines, he said he wasn't happy with the anti-depressant I was on and prescribed me amitriptyline which was the best thing that ever happened to me I hardly ever get a migraine I think last year I got 3 it has truly change my life!!
P.s I can even eat all the things that caused a migraine
