I'm new here and I find it very reassuring to see that I am not alone with my migraines. Thank you all for sharing your experiences. I would also like to share mine.
I've been having migraines for 4 years now and I'm trying to cope with it as good as I can. I have found that regular sleeping patterns and relaxation help a lot in preventing migraines and this helps me to stay positive even if it's not always easy.
The funny thing about my migraines is that I don't always get the headache but I do get the aura. I realize that this is probably a blessing, but still I have to confess that it freaks me out. When I get the aura I feel dizzy and confused, I have blind spots, and every time again it feels like I'm losing control and I start to panic. I was wondering if other people have had similar experiences and how they deal with this? Is there anything you can do to keep things under control?
