Timely headache last night. Currently waiting for my flight to DC. Tuesday involved in yearly push for awareness. Face time with members of congress for migraine research. #HOH #HeadacheontheHill
No Relaxing Tea For Me
A resolution to the headaches I was experiencing in November.👍
A little research on what I’d started eating recently, and Google.
Some people who have allergic reactions to Ragweed also respond negatively to camomile. Although a new tea I’d been drinking wasn’t a camomile tea per se, it did contain camomile. Once I stopped drinking the tea, the headaches went away.
A New Headache Reliever?
Is it possible? Getting my tragus pierced not only diminished migraines, but also helped with other headaches. I got this done too long ago for it still to have a placebo effect.
A Successful Visit to My Neurologist
My husband drove me because driving in city traffic makes me more anxious than I am already.
I told the physician about my headaches (less of a problem) and my balance (more of a problem.) He ordered a blood test. Results shortly.🤞
So Much For Relaxation
Last week I was so proud of myself. I was keeping well hydrated drinking water and tea. I’ve just discovered Celestial Seasonings Cinnamon Spice – delicious.
Fast forward a few days and I’m experiencing an ongoing migraine. My migraines are always food-related. I trace to migraine back to the Cinnamon Spice Tea.☹🤨👎
Apparently being allergic to Ragweed can also cause headaches from consuming tea containing camomile.😮
Researchers from all over the world gathered this past week for a Driving Common Pathways Workshop in St. Louis; gaining new insights that will help us find a cure for #hydrocephalus. #ResearchMATTERS #hydrocephalusdiscovery
Replacing My Defective Brain
Some Good News
Appointment with neurosurgeon. All good. Back to annual check-ups.
Too Many Brain Surgeries
The average lifespan for a shunt used to treat hydrocephalus is 8-10 years. Yet as I approach 50 I’ve had ten brain surgeries. #HAM2019
It’s Not Like it’s Brain Surgery
For the one million Americans living with hydrocephalus, that’s the only treatment there is.
