    SO, most of you know that I suffer from migraines. I have had one all week. Wednesday I had a crazy aura and tingling in my hand as well as an inability to speak properly. I went in to see the Dr yesterday and he sent me over to have an MRI. Hopefully I will know results soon. Just wanted to let you guys know cause I have been so sporadic with posting this week.

    🙂

            Holy smokes Manda! I will cross everything and hope that the MRI comes out ok.

            Lynne has had really bad migraines too. She has had to resort to some serious medical intevention. Hopefully she will see this and chime in.

                i can't imagine the pain you are going through – i hope they find the problem, in the mean time, have you been changing your diet? sometimes it's those wonderful things they put in our food that cause all this pain.
                hope it's better sooner than later!

                #151183

                Yeah, actually, over the past few months I have been eating more natural, less processed foods. I actually lost 4 lbs already! No more cokes (that has been awhile), not as much sugar, chocolate, etc.

                  Hugs Manda. I have had migraines since I was 12. I currently take a daily medication to prevent them and I have another medication I take when I do get a migraine. I find that excedrine migraine works better than most prescibed meds.

                  I've had the numbness and vision issues you talk about. I've had every scan possible as well. PM me and we can talk more.

                    Oh Manda. There's nothing I hate worse than a headache and migraines are the worst of the worst. I hope they will be able to give you something for the pain and discover what to do to stop them.

                    My friend suffered from migraines all her life and a year or so ago she stopped taking the birth control pill because she is in menopause now. Once she stopped taking that, she quit having migraines. I don't know if there's any scientific basis to it, I just know that's what happened with her.

                    Our bodies are so intricate and as much as we know about them, there is so much unknown also. I hope you soon get relief from your pain and your worry.
