Why Am I Suffering With These Migraines?
I was suffering because of my migraines and it seemed like everything in my life suffered around me. I know what it is like to excuse myself from family and friends just to find a dark room and lay down. It was hard for them to understand that I was in REAL pain and that I couldn’t handle the lights, sounds, smells or stress. I remember pushing myself every day to function in the workplace. It was hard enough to manage the throbbing pain but almost impossible to read the computer screen in front of me due to the persistent aura. For many years I wondered why I was experiencing migraines when the people around me seemed to have happy, normal lives. I went from doctor to doctor to find out why I was stricken by this horrible 8 letter word MIGRAINE. All I found was that no one could give a direct answer. What the doctors did give me was information regarding the possible triggers that causes them. They also told me things I could avoid reducing the triggers so I will share them with you. Remember, we can't avoid every trigger so don't forget to request your Trial Packets here.
