I had my first migraine at age 56, and still having them 11 years later.
My journey over this time has not been easy, esp whilst experiencing all the other pitfalls that entering old age brings.
I've tried everything, from botox to vitamins suppliments.
Had brain scan a year ago which showed no abnormalities.
My personality has changed, from being quite a bubbly person to being an introvert who looks permanently on the black side of life.
Also I always looked younger than my age before migraines, now I feel and look older than my years.
My life evolves round migraines, either suffering from one or dreading the next attack.
I used to have one every week, never any frequently, but lately I only have a few days pain free.
Its making my quality of life (whats left of it) on a scale of 1-10=3.
I look on migraines as a curse, and anyone who has never experienced a migraine, has no idea what a living hell, we migraine sufferers go through.
