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.

Hello There!

I'm so honored that you've found us! I'm Heather, a Mom of 3 who blogs about parenting, food, occasional travel and how I overcame my daily struggle with anxiety. I miss sleeping and rely on coffee and laughter to get me through the day. I hope you enjoy and visit often!

  1. Hey, it is true that meditation helps a lot to reduce the headache and the migraine. Using phones a lot is also one of the reasons for the headache.

  2. 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/

  3. I know a handful of mamas who deal with migraines on a daily basis and it’s not fun. I wonder if any of them have tried this before.

  4. I am so glad I don’t get migraines!! I am glad that there are good treatment methods for those who get them though!!

  5. This is my first time hearing about this and I think it’s awesome that we can rely on this product for migraines. It’s not easy to deal with especially when you’re in the middle of a very busy day!

  6. 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!

  7. I feel so bad for people that have migraines and this post is very helpful for them. I had one migraine headache in my life and know that I could not live with them all the time. It was insane.

  8. I do suffer from migraines and I take about 4 paracetamol tablets at once when this happens. I will certainly dig into looking at Migshield a bit more because I know how bad migraines can get.

  9. I have very very strong migraines and so far, nothing has worked. They are so painful and incapacitating! Thanks for introducing me to this!

  10. Such a great informative post this is! I don’t have migraines but will share this with a friend of mine who has.

  11. This is such good information. So many people, many friends and family members of mine, suffer from migraines and its hard to find any useful relief.

  12. My sister has migraines, I think I should share this with here. Thank you for the information..

  13. I sometimes get headaches but usually, they go away easily without having to take any medicine. I just need to relax my mind.

  14. I get headaches monthly and have had very bad headaches and I thought I had experienced a migraine before until I had a real migraine and realized those were jus bad headaches. I never want to experience that pain again!

  15. I plan on checking this out as soon as possible and also sharing it with my sister as we both end up with blinding Migraines and can’t do anything once one hits us.

  16. I have to admit I do consider myself lucky, since leaving processed foods and sugar behind I haven’t had any issues with migraines I do know how horrible they are. peppermint oil has helped a lot.

  17. I use to get really bad migraines,but haven’t had in years. However, I need to share this post to my mom who gets them.

  25. I used to get migraines all the time and then after I had kids, they stopped. So odd, right? My period used to be all over the place to (I was told due to PCOS) but once again after having kids, my period has been arriving like clockwork. Anyway, if my migraines ever return, I will look into this so thanks!!!

  26. It is amazing that magnesium can help with so many things. I use it to relax and the boys use it for growing pains.

  27. These are such essential tips! Migraines can be absolutely debilitating, these tips will definitely help the next time I have one!

  28. Awesome tips! This is my first time hearing about this product. I have to share this post with my friend who suffers from migraines.

  29. I’ll have to try this. I sometimes do get headaches, and I hate them because then it’s tough to get things done.

  30. I get headaches, but thankfully not migraines. My sister gets them sometimes as a result of her MS, so I will definitely share this information with her!

  31. So sorry you suffer from my migraines. My daughter gets them too and I’ll need to look into MigShield for her.

  32. I’m lucky enough to never have experienced a migraine, but my husband does! Glad you have found some relief from yours!

  36. So, I used to suffer from migraines, turns out I had a brain aneurysm. It’s ALWAYS a good idea to get checked out if you have frequent migraines.

  37. I am going to tell my friend about these! She has had a headache (which usually turns into a migraine) everyday for the last two weeks! I wonder if this would work for her.

  38. I used to have migraines all the time. Evidently they were hormone related because I got better immediately after having a hysterectomy! I wish I had know about this then.

  39. I’ve been fortunate enough to never had a migraine… but never say never! These are great tips and I bet some of them work for mild headaches as well. Thanks for sharing!

  40. I am lucky that I don’t get migraines anymore (I did in my teens). But I do get really bad headaches so I’ll have to try some of these ideas for myself and see if they help relieve my pain a little.

  41. I am so grateful that I don’t suffer from migraines. I know several people who do and finding relief can be hard for them. Will have to send this on to them to read, helpfully that will help them.
