It’s funny the things that I miss most. Often when the girls achieved something big, we would take them to this little ice cream shop by our home for a treat. But we can’t do that now. Our state is under a stay home order through at least May. And while we don’t NEED to go places, I miss the freedom to be able to do so. I miss not having to disinfect every single grocery item before we can put it away. I miss impromptu trips to Target. ⁣
⁣
But... we haven’t left the house in almost three weeks. Because, eventually we will be able to get back to normal and drive wherever we want and spend money on things we probably don’t need. And our sacrifice for a month or two, or four, is so that our brave health workers and essential employees are not put in any additional danger. And to me, that’s worth the tiny inconvenience of being asked not to leave the house. ⁣

It’s officially only been a few days since the schools in our state closed, due to the coronavirus global pandemic. Our family has decided to self quarantine. We aren’t going anywhere aside from the occasional quick trip to the grocery store (and by quick, I mean 2 hours because that’s how long it took for Super Dad to pick up the handful of things on my list). Don’t worry though, he put on his gardening gloves (yes, gardening gloves) and stays a safe distance from others.⁣

What to do for Migraine Relief

If You Love It, Share It!

There was a point in my life where I had no idea what a migraine was or how it felt to have one. I had family members and friends who suffered from them and told me how horrible they were, but I couldn’t sympathize with them because I had no idea what they were feeling.  And then I got pregnant.  It’s like I became a Mom and the ailment fairy dropped a bunch of beautifully wrapped packages at my door, one containing all the migraines I could handle.

What is a Migraine?

According to the Migraine Research Foundation, just about everyone has headaches. But contrary to popular belief, migraine is not just a bad headache. It’s an extremely incapacitating collection of neurological symptoms that usually includes a severe throbbing recurring pain on one side of the head. However, in 1/3 of migraine attacks, both sides are affected. Attacks last between 4 and 72 hours and are often accompanied by one or more of the following disabling symptoms: visual disturbances, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, extreme sensitivity to sound, light, touch and smell, and tingling or numbness in the extremities or face. Of course, everyone is different, and symptoms vary by person and sometimes by attack.

I remember that first migraine like it was yesterday. I was sure it was just a headache but it got worse as the time went on. Noise bothered me. Light was unbearable.  I just wanted to hide under my covers and fall asleep. It was like nothing I had ever felt. It took my entire day away from me.  I couldn’t work. I couldn’t eat.  It completely debilitated me.

How Do You Get Relief?

Someone on social media suggested freezing the migraine, so I bought an ice pack and placed it directly on my forehead. I even tried to eat a popsicle really quickly to give myself brain freeze.  I had my kids or my husband rub my temples.  While both offered a small amount of comfort, neither provided long term relief. Aspirin didn’t help. The other over the counter meds had too much caffeine, so I couldn’t sleep.  I drank more water. I tried peppermint essential oils.  I even got blood tests to make sure it wasn’t something more serious. You name it, I tried it.  And still, at the worst times, a migraine would show up and ruin my entire day.

I considered asking my doctor for some sort of medication, but knowing that there is a risk that they can lead to substance abuse and dependence, I was determined to find another option.

Internet searches brought up a lot of the same suggestions including:

  • Rest
  • Massage
  • Heating Pad
  • Meditation
  • Caffeine Free Diet (this one particularly made me laugh since so many migraine medications contain caffeine)

Introducing MigShield

In May, I got an email asking if I’d like to try a new natural solution to migraines from Quantum Health. [amazon_textlink asin=’B0773PZQ4G’ text=’MigShield’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’us-1′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’ad693cea-9b89-11e8-966c-edd2bd809cb5′] is formulated with CoQ10, Magnesium and Riboflavin, all critical ingredients proven to relieve migraines. I agreed to try them for 2 months because, I had pretty much exhausted all other options at that point.

So here we are, 2 months later.  I’ve only had one migraine since I started taking them which is a definite improvement over the previous 2 months.  Since they are all natural, I don’t have to worry about what I’m putting into my body and more importantly, there is no addiction risk involved. [amazon_textlink asin=’B0773PZQ4G’ text=’MigShield’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’us-1′ marketplace=’US’ link_id=’ad693cea-9b89-11e8-966c-edd2bd809cb5′] has fit in perfectly with my daily supplements and gives me hope.

Do you suffer from migraines? Comment below and let me know what you do for relief.

    Nice post… I have been suffering from migraine for a long time.. Recently found that it was due a symptom of me being histamine intolerant. For me keeping away from high histamine foods, stale foods, anything high in citrus has helped me.. Also, taking MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) daily has helped a lot.
    I found this blog very informative : https://mummyandchild.com/intolerances/histamine/

    I suffer from horrible migraines. Over the years I have tried everything that supposedly helps migraines. The only thing the remotely helps is a hit rice sock, Tylenol for pain and benadryl to help me sleep it off, and a dark and quiet room. I will look into the MigShield for relief. Sounds like it works!
