30 Days of Lists: Day 17

Day 17…

My Migraine Triggers.

I have a lot of them. I know I am not alone in not knowing ALL of them, but there are some big ones.

1. Flashing/strobe lights. Emergency Vehicles are the worst.

2. Red wine…in fact, any wine, but red is worse.

3. MSG. I love Chinese food, it doesn’t love me.

4. Soy Sauce. See above.

5. Poor sleep/insomnia. Usually this becomes a vicious cycle of my head hurts, so I can’t sleep. I can’t sleep, so my head hurts.

6. Poor body mechanics. If I mess up my back, all bets are off.

7. Sex. Yes, sex. I know, it is supposed to get rid of a headache, it doesn’t. It sucks.

Those are the biggies…but there are more, I am sure.

About carrie

I am a mother of two, wife and professional. I work; I sew; I do crafts; I cook; I support my family; I race; I live. I have been diagnosed with Chronic Migraine Headaches and I refuse to let them control my life. I live my life to the fullest and try to find ways to enjoy it as much as possible. I am living with a plethora of food sensitivities. But I am living life. I am enjoying life.
