A few people commented on my Facebook page when I mentioned my experience with the headache specialist. They wanted to know what I had been advised and asked that I keep them updated. Here's a little bit of feedback for you.
When I first started taking it, for the first two days, I could feel that I was having a headache, but it was kind of in the background. There was a dullness, but it was so mild, it didn't bother me at all. Since I'd had a headache on the day I met with the doctor, it was a pretty sure bet that I'd have one for a few days following. That's been the nature of my headaches--days in a row.
I was directed to do a number of other things--yoga for ten minutes twice a day, exercise for 30 minutes a day, and regular hours of sleep--going to bed and waking up at the same time "every single day; no matter what."
All I can say at this point is I'm trying.
I only do yoga with Tara Stiles. I found her the first day and have continued with her. This morning's was my favorite so far:
I HATE exercise. I know. I know. Everybody LOVES to exercise. Well, I'm not afraid to come out and say I DON'T. It just takes time, and other than it making me sweat and ache, I'm just not accomplishing anything when I do it. So, starting that has been the toughest thing for me. Now, if I could finish my workout and have all of the laundry folded or have the grocery shopping done, I'd be totally in. I'd love it, but really, as it is, I'm just not seeing the joy.
Some days, especially during the holidays, I didn't do anything but take the MigreLief, but still, there were no headaches. I saw the specialist on December 18th. My last headache that I had to take medicine for was December 23rd.
One last thing....what I understand about medications--over the counter, prescription, or herbal--is that they interact with different people differently, so what works for one person, might not work for another. If you try the MigreLief, and it doesn't work for you, don't be discouraged. There are other remedies out there that might serve you better. Sometimes it's just nice to know that there are options.
