How do you deal with migraines???

Jul 03, 2017 5:02 PM

I'm still in school and the others act like kindergartners . Migraines are new to me, and all (or at least most) of the kids understand that I get headaches/migraines, but they won't stop talking!! (Yelling if you ask me.) I've got earmuffs to help with the noise, but if I get a headache with them on I have to take them off because if I don't the throbbing will get louder and faster. My friends try to help but we're not the "popular kids" so they can't do much, plus they've never felt the kind of headaches I get, let alone migraines.
So if anyone can give me any advice on how to deal with migrains that would be amazing!!!💜

I am so sorry for the pain you feel if it makes you feel any better I've been dealing with the same migraine for 280 days straight so I totally understand your pain. If you'd like private message me and I can give you lots of punters and tricks. What are some of your symptoms??? They are so difficult and I am so so so so so sorry I really hope that everyone will grow to understand how much pain you are in. Try to get as much down time as possible and talk to a neurologist. I suggest going to a neurologist first because they will be able to rule anything serious out as well as maybe prescribe an emergency medication that you can take at the onset of one. I don't want to scare you with how long mine has been going on but hang in there. As for the yelling please stand up for yourself as well as let your teachers know what's going on many of them even if they have not experienced this pain they will be sympathetic and help quiet people. If this does not work talk to the headmaster, guidance counselor, and or principle at your school and develop a plan or even a quite place for you to work. Also going to a neurologist you can get a note for those days and they will have to provide accommodations due to a medical reason. I really wish you the best and feel free to ask for some pointers and some ideas of what to do.
