Support group for migraines and headaches.

Sunday, 05 August 2012 by Jaime.Sanders

Hi everyone!  My name is Jaime and I'm a new Administrator to the group.  I wanted to formally introduce myself.  I have had Migraine disease for 26 years.  I was diagnosed by a neurologist at the age of 8.  I have spent that past three to four years with chronic migraine and chronic daily headache and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia nine months ago.  In April I received a neurostimulator implant to help manage my CDH and CM.  It has been a God send to me.  It isn't a cure but it allows me to have more control over the pain...something that I have never been able to do with medications, alternative therapies, Botox, nerve blocks, diet changes or acupuncture.

I am also a wife and a mom.  My husband and I will be celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary in September and we have three children.  My oldest is 14 years old and she just recently returned home from a 20-day trip to six countries in Europe!  My younger two are boys, ages 10 and 11.  I am on SS Disability for my migraines.  I am unable to work due to the frequency, severity, and disabling effects.  I was only granted a partial award and am still waiting on a decision for the appeal my lawyer submitted on my behalf almost four years ago.  Gotta love the SSA!

I also have a blog and am an administrator of two support groups on Facebook; one for people who struggle with depression and chronic migraines and the other is a group that offers positive ways of coping with chronic pain.

I am happy to help out in any way I can.  I know how important it is to have support when coping with such a disabling disorder.  I look forward to getting to know everyone here!

Jaime

I did not know about magnesium. I will have to consult with my doctor before starting. Thank you for posting.

I have depression and migraine and found that when I am exhausted, my migraines are more severe. Also, as my depression worsens, my migraines are more severe.

Mike Bobinger i had chronic headaches from hydrocephalus and a post shunt. and had to take vicodin for 7yrs from a nasty bladder infection and epiditimitis from surgery. a good neurologist weined me off vicodin and the headaches are gone. it was my body craving vicodin that caused the headaches every day. about an hour ago · Unlike · 1
