I’m 56 years old, a little too old to have developed this type of a migraine, or so I thought. I was always super busy and working in my cosmetics shop. Mind you nothing and I mean nothing could keep this “old chickie” down until about nine months ago when I thought I was having a stroke! Boy, furthest thing thing from the truth!
Apparently I’ve had them all or most of life, but didn’t know. They are called physical migraines and since turned into some of the worst migraines I’ve known. I’m numb on my right side, can not move my right leg up or down yet can walk, and I quite often lose my ability to speak normal or get my word right. They have moved behind the left eye in a most painful way.
I’m super excited right now because in one week they’re going to be doing what’s called nerve blocks on me and inside I’m jumping for joy. Did I mention these little beasts are called hemiplegic migraines with nerve damage going on. Look out you little beasts cause I’m coming out FIGHTING LIKE A GIRL and nothing will stop me, nope nothing!
