migraine madness

Hey y'all. I wanted to blog the past two days, but I've been dealing with on and off migraines. 

This is something I've struggled with for a long time, owing a lot to my scoliosis, but also to other things including stress and my body's annoying habit of easily depleting my body's B-12 units. 

Did you know that 30% of the US population has been surveyed as never even having a small headache? I can't imagine what my life would be without these debilitating episodes of intense pain inside of my head. 

The worst part about migraines is that no one can physically see how much pain it's causing you. It seems "dramatic" if you need to call out of work because you can't even stand up out of bed due to a headache or a migraine. It's really the worst sometimes. 

I try to treat mine with the usual suspects of 

- caffeine 
- hydration
- pain killers
- natural supplements
- sleep
- cracking my neck
- essential oils 
- and good ol' fashioned crying when it hurts too much

It's really something I struggle with daily, sometimes for days on end rather than interspersed. I went through a period without any headaches right after my birth control implant was removed, as my doctor and I thought it was the cause of everything.

That was all fine and dandy until the migraines started up again about a month ago. 

So now? Now I'm trying to take vitex with B6 to help level out my hormonal levels, as well as B-12, feverfew, magnesium, and a few other supplements to try and figure out what is causing it besides my physical issue. 

Do any of you suffer from invisible forms of pain? Perhaps it's a disability or perhaps it is moving migraines like mine? Let me know in the comments below!
