I FOUND THE CURE TO WHAT FELT LIKE A LIFETIME OF MIGRAINES
I too have suffered for more years than I want to remember with migraines. My life has been dictated by my migraines, it has been a living hell!!! Reality we do not have a life.
I suffered from migraines almost all day everyday.
I went into a very, very deep depression - have taken just about all the anti depressants on the market. Tranquilisers, epileptic medication etc etc Live on migraine pain pills. The neurologists warned me that if I continue taking the migraine pills the way I do (some days I took up to 4 pills) one of 2 things is likely to happen. One a massive stroke and Two my heart will stop beating - that meant nothing to me I did not care, stroke no, heart stop beating definitely!!!
Went to physio 3 times a week for 18 months
Have seen 20 specialists of which 6 were neurologists.
Had 15 electric shock treatments - yes you may think this is drastic but when we are so desperate we will try anything hoping it might be the solution.
Maxilla Facial Surgeon
Hospitalised 15 times
Went to Rehab twice to be detoxified from pain killers.
AND ON AND ON AND ON!!!!
At the end of the day I decided that is it their is no cure!!! This is how my life will be permanently.
Bottom line my life was a living hell.
I live in South Africa. At the begining of this year I heard a specialist talking on the radio, saw him on TV, read in newspapers and magazines of the cure he has for migraines etc. etc. etc. A world first break through in Migraine cure. In one of our local magazines I read about a woman who was totally cured from a life time of living hell with migraines. I related 100 percent to her. I phoned the magazine and got the contact number for the lady, I phoned her and she told me she went to the Headache Clinic and her life has changed she no longer has mirgraines and cannot believe what it is like to live like a normal human being, she is off anti depressants etc.
I made the decision this is my last hope - what do I have to loose?????
I went to the Headache Clinic and was amazed at the amount of people I saw there I could see the agony in their faces and it made me feel like I belonged with them, here I am with people who are gong through exactly what I am. I met people who were cured from these dreaded migraines at the Headache Clinic. I was amazed and suddenly just knew I had found the right place at last.
Many migraine sufferers were here from overseas - they know people who came to see this specialist and they were 100 percent cured from migraines.
After having spoken to numerous specialists and had numerous tests, scans, xrays, blood tests etc etc. I was told that in certain cases migraines are caused due to arteries in our heads (we do not need all these arteries) the arteries above the skull not the arteries that go to the brain and can be hereditary - in my case the tests proved my condition was hereditary. Their is a very specific scan which is done for this and my scans showed numerous problem arteries. Their is a procedure which the specialist does to these arteries and from the minute you come round from the aneasthetic you wake up feeling like a new person (the pain relief was so huge I did not need to take pain killers after the operation) I cannot describe the change, the muscles in my head, neck and shoulders felt so relaxed, felt motivated, energetic, no pain, colours look so different, vision is crisp, great quality sleep. The results are beyond the human imagination - I am a changed person and now know what it is like to live!!
PLEASE NOTE A VERY LOW PERCENTAGE OF HIS PATIENTS REQUIRE THIS OPERATION.
He has other simple methods (not pain killers) which work for the majority of the patients.
My specialist is involved at Harvard in America, also in Italy and England with this first time break through for migraines. You can look on the websites re Headache Clinic South Africa and you can read all about it there.
