Sorry I haven't been around for a while but I saw this article this morning and just had to share it with you. The first new drug made especially for migraines in 20yrs. It's already been submitted for medical licence in Europe and the U.S. fingers crossed we can all benefit from this. Article is in the daily mail if you want to pop over and have a read πŸ’– #migraine #migraineur #migraineurs #migrainetogether #migrainecommunity #migrainepain #brainfog #brainpain #chr#chronicre #chronic #chronicmigraine #fight #fightingpain #headpain #headache #headaches #talk #invisiblepain #spoonie #spoonielife #invisiblepainwarrior #neurology #neurological

#inst10 #ReGram @migraine_together: Was stupid enough to think I might make it out for a meal with the girls tonight, migraine flared as per usual when I've made any plans. Left eye has dropped dramatically and my head feels like it's been split in 2. I get so frustrated for letting people down all the time I hate myself some days ☹ #migraine #migraineur #migraineurs #migrainetogether #migrainecommunity #migrainepain #migrainesupport #migrainewarrior #brainpain #brokenbrain #brainfog #fight #fightingpain #headpain #headache #headaches #talk #invisiblepain #spoonie #spoonielife #invisiblepainwarrior #neurology #neurological #chronic #chronicmigraine #chronicpain #chronicsevere #lettingeveryonedown

I will never get used to having these debilitating migraines. The days out I've missed with my children, nights out with friends, the travelling I always thought I'd do. At times I feel like a complete prisoner to migraine, I feel as though it's stolen so many years of my life, i could literally scream at times. But we keep plodding on, as that is the only option we have. A big shout out to all of you who are fighting this same battle, you are doing amazing πŸ’— #migraine #migraineur #migraineurs #migrainetogether #migrainecommunity #migrainepain #migrainesupport #migrainewarrior #brainpain #brokenbrain #brainfog #fight #fightingpain #headpain #headache #headaches #talk #invisiblepain #spoonie #spoonielife #invisiblepainwarrior #neurology #neurological #chronic #chronicmigraine #chronicpain #chronicsevere #youvegotthis #youmatter

Self care is hugely important when you suffer from a chronic illness, yet it seems to be the one thing we feel most guilty about. I have been trying to practice this myself over the last few weeks. It really does help, you are as equally important as the next person. Try caring for yourself as much as you do for others πŸ’— #migraine #migraineur #migraineurs #migrainetogether #migrainecommunity #migrainepain #migrainesupport #migrainewarrior #brainpain #brokenbrain #brainfog #fight #fightingpain #headpain #headache #headaches #talk #invisiblepain #spoonie #spoonielife #invisiblepainwarrior #neurology #neurological #chronic #chronicmigraine #chronicpain #chronicsevere #selfcare

Sorry I haven't been around for a while, I've been having some serious battles of the brain, I think my second round of botox may be starting to take effect now so hoping life will be a bit brighter. I've been trying to rid myself of all medications and trying to rely on my triptan and naproxen. I felt completely struck in the loop and wasn't sure if all the medication was making me feel worse. I've also started reading this book, still at the early stages so couldn't tell you how good it is yet but shall definitely keep you posted. I hope you've all been managing ok πŸ’— #migraine #migraineur #migraineurs #migrainetogether #migrainecommunity #migrainepain #migrainesupport #migrainewarrior #brainpain #brokenbrain #brainfog #fight #fightingpain #headpain #headache #headaches #talk #invisiblepain #spoonie #spoonielife #invisiblepainwarrior #neurology #neurological #chronic #chronicmigraine #chronicpain #chronicsevere #healing #healingyourself

Botox doesn't seem to be working very well for me these days so my migraine nurse suggested occipital nerve blocks could be the next route to take. I don't really know much about these as I've never had any experience with them. I'd love to hear your experiences, was it successful, how long do they work for? Do they take an immediate effect? I hope you're all as well as can be today πŸ’— #migraine #migraineur #migraineurs #migrainetogether #migrainecommunity #migrainepain #migrainesupport #migrainewarrior #brainpain #brokenbrain #brainfog #fight #fightingpain #headpain #headache #headaches #talk #invisiblepain #spoonie #spoonielife #invisiblepainwarrior #neurology #neurological #chronic #chronicmigraine #chronicpain #chronicsevere

Almost had a migraine free day, then boom, could feel the neck pain starting, along with the throbbing temples the nausea and the aching shoulders. Looks like it's an early night for me.i hope you're all managing to push through today whatever it is you're doing πŸ’—πŸ’— #migraine #migraineur #migraineurs #migrainetogether #migrainecommunity #migrainepain #migrainesupport #migrainewarrior #brainpain #brokenbrain #brainfog #fight #fightingpain #headpain #headache #headaches #talk #invisiblepain #spoonie #spoonielife #invisiblepainwarrior #neurology #neurological #chronic #chronicmigraine #chronicpain #chronicsevere

This picture was taken last summer on one of my rare better days, it must have been a good day as I'm not wearing sunglasses, I don't seem to go anywhere without those now. I don't often have my picture taken but ones like this reminds me that there are good days, even if they are far and few between πŸ’— #migraine #migraineur #migraineurs #migrainetogether #migrainecommunity #migrainepain #migrainesupport #migrainewarrior #brainpain #brokenbrain #brainfog #fight #fightingpain #headpain #headache #headaches #talk #invisiblepain #spoonie #spoonielife #invisiblepainwarrior #neurology #neurological #chronic #chronicmigraine #chronicpain #chronicsevere #betterdays

I definitely had my first migraine attack before the age of 12. The earliest I can remember was 5yrs old, I couldn't tell you if I'd had any before then. Can you still remember your first migraine? πŸ’— #migraine #migraineur #migraineurs #migrainetogether #migrainecommunity #migrainepain #migrainesupport #migrainewarrior #brainpain #brokenbrain #brainfog #fight #fightingpain #headpain #headache #headaches #talk #invisiblepain #spoonie #spoonielife #invisiblepainwarrior #neurology #neurological #chronic #chronicmigraine #chronicpain #chronicsevere

The next time someone tells you it's just a migraine and to think more positively, show them this. It doesn't even cover half the symptoms in my opinion.

Question from a member of the community. As I migraine all of the time this is a really difficult question for me to answer.

I think this is something all chronic illness warriors learn pretty fast, going for a walk, seeing friends, even making it to the shops and back can be a massive task.

So I didn't take my muscle relaxer/sleeping tablet last night because of the amount of side effects I've been getting from them, woke up this morning with a cracking migraine = Damned if you do, Damned if you don't πŸ’— #migraine #migraineur #migraineurs #migrainetogether #migrainesupport #migrainecommunity #migrainepain #brainfog #brainpain #chr#chronicre #chronic #chronicmigraine #fight #fightingpain #headpain #headache #headaches #talk #invisiblepain #spoonie #spoonielife #invisiblepainwarrior #neurology #neurological

Sorry I haven't been around for the last few days, this is exactly how I've been feeling, I've had horrendous migraines topped off with digestive problems caused by new medication, every muscle in my body hurt, I was at the emergency doctors at 2am Tuesday morning as the pain became too much to handle. I'm feeling slightly more human today which I am so grateful for. I hope you have all been well and as pain free as possible πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’— #migraine #migraineur #migraineurs #migrainetogether #migrainecommunity #migrainepain #migrainesupport #migrainewarrior #brainpain #brokenbrain #brainfog #fight #fightingpain #headpain #headache #headaches #talk #invisiblepain #spoonie #spoonielife #invisiblepainwarrior #neurology #neurological #pain #paingry #paingryisreal #chronic #chronicmigraine #chronicpain #chronicsevere

I'm sorry the picture is a bit blurred, doesn't help when you have a migraine I know, but I thought it summed up chronic pain sufferers brilliantly. You will always have a voice in this community, and you most definitely will not be ridiculed for how you feel or your coping methods. I appreciate each and every one of you, thank you for being here πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’— #migraine #migraineur #migraineurs #migrainetogether #migrainecommunity #migrainepain #brainfog #brainpain #chr#chronicre #chronic #chronicmigraine #fight #fightingpain #headpain #headache #headaches #tal#talk #invisiblepain #spoonie #spoonielife #invisiblepainwarrior #neurology #neurological #talk #haveavoice #chronicpain
