I can remember having a migraine as early as age 4, and have had them frequently throughout my life. I didn't see a doctor about it until I was 14 and begged my mom to take me. Anyway, when I was 21 my father passed away and I was having a terrible time in college, yet my migraines began to lessen in frequency and severity. Now I'm 23 and rarely have them at all, and I'm extremely grateful. I just don't understand why they went away and at such a stressful time in my life (shouldn't they have gotten worse?). I'm assuming I just grew out of them. They thing is, I'm constantly worried that they'll return. After living in pain for so long, I can't shake the habits I got into when I was sick. I carefully plan everything I do, always have an exit strategy, always carry medication, etc. It's like I have no idea how to be free, even though I'm no longer in pain. Moreover, I'm always afraid it won't last. I'm afraid they'll be Beck.
Has anyone else ever had their migraines disappear for a time, and then come back?
Wow it feels like it's been a long time since I've been on here. Thankfully I've felt pretty good except about a month ago I started getting this popping feeling in my right thumb especially when picking something up like my dog or some gym activities. I didn't pay it any mind becuase it didn't hurt it just felt weird. Well after a few weeks of that, the area started to get inflammed & some pain...
Does anyone know if a better RA forum than this one? I always loved to come here. I would read a lot & post some. Now it's so hard for me to read the posts. I have a laptop & half the screen is taken up by the huge banner at the top. I don't like it. I'm not comfortable with it. I will probably not hang around very long. So sad. :(
