Hi, Crazycatlady, and welcome! I’ve had cats for over 50 years even though I am allergic to them. My last cat went to kitty heaven and this is the first year I haven’t had a cat in the house for Christmas. 😟. But I do have a sweet Havanese pup to keep me company.
You might want to check out an allergist about your migraines. I have a friend who has suffered with chronic migraines all of her life and one was so bad they thought she was having a stroke and they life-flighted her to the hospital! She finally tried seeing an allergy specialist and she was allergic to not only outside influences but also foods! She is allergic to wheat and rice, things like onion and garlic, lemon, and absolutely no pork products. Since she cut those out of her diet, she can get mild headaches but not the horrible migraines and the headaches are few and far between. She is on medication now so she can have an occasional sandwich and small amounts of things she is allergic to. So this is a thought for you.
Be sure to read Fibro 101...the first thread on the forum. There are links to information that might help you with fibro.
I’m also looking forward to getting to know you better. It’s wonderful to be able to not only understand what the members are describing but also to be able to help each other. I hope to see more of you soon.
