My name is Gena and I have had a 40 year plus fight with migraines. I am writing this page to help chronicle my fight. Rather than bog down the web site “our story” with all the gory details, I decided to put them here instead. Most excited to report that I have several blends that are really helping a lot for me, always check with your doctor.
Sometime, 1977 – Serious car crash resulted in whip lash but didn’t learn until 9 years later.
My first migraine was the night of the car crash.
Mar 16, 2006 Imitrex started for migraines. Actually works, use it several times a month initially.
Fast forward 10 years until July 02, 2016
June 2016 – Started having migraines daily. Went to Dr and prescribed Topamax. Topamax has a number of very serious side effects including severe tingles, confusion at times. Overall feeling of slowed thinking.
August 2016 – Quit taking Topamax, tingles went away, felt more clarity in thinking.
Oct 14, 2016 – Getting to almost daily use of Imitrex, trying to figure out alternatives. Attempt cold turkey from Imitrex, full blown migraine kicks in, 12 hours later I give up the fight and take another Imitrex, awww, life is good.
February 10 2017 – Migraines continue daily with only remedy to use Imitrex on daily basis. Usually I awake with a headache and the headache persists until afternoon (or when I take an Imitrex).
March 14, 2017 – Went to ER room for increased intense tingles on left side of body. Dr advised I should go to ER ASAP, so I did. Good news is that the tingles were from my use of Imitrex, not from a heart attack (wheewwhh!). I was removed from Imitrex and given Gabapentin (to help with the pins and needs).
March 15, 2017 – Quit Imitrex Day 1 – Full on Migraine left side. Using Gapabentin every 8 hours. Tingling would start at 6hrs, Green Life Remedy No Tingles Rollon helped.
March 16, 2017 – Quit Imitrex Day 2 – Headache, start of migraine. Right Side. Lasted part of the day, used special Green Life Remedy Lavender and Peppermint blend, headache went away.
March 17, 2018 – No Migraine. Still taking Gapabentin every 8 hours and roll-on blends for tingling (neuropathy).
March 18, 2017 – Migraine started, looked to go full blown. Used combination of Green Life Remedy migraine rub, Lavender Blend Inhaler, glass of water and cup of coffee together. Migraine WIPED out within 20 minutes. Migraine GONE.
March 19, 2017 – No migraine, took Gabapentin and Green Life Remedy Migraine Kit no tingles formula.
March 19, 2017 – New Green Life Remedy bath blend to help deal with body tingles. Worked well for me, noting and updating the recipe and queuing up the blend.
March 20, 2017 – No migraine, took Gabapentin and Green Life Remedy Migraine Kit no tingles formula.
March 22, 2017 – Started the day with a migraine … working on it .. more later.
