For all  you chronic migraine sufferers out there there is a new medication called Aimovig it’s finally just come out on the market.  It looks just like a Epi pen.

My neurologist told me about it a year and a half ago and it finally got approved by the FDA and got released last month. I just signed the paperwork at my doctors office this week, my doctor showed me what it looked  like and how to use it it’s very simple and easy. It costs $575 a month without insurance but it is supposed to reduce migraines by 50% and some people got 75% relief. It has had a lot of success. 

 Unfortunately my insurance doesn’t cover it so I have to pay out-of-pocket, but for me it’s worth its worth it  and worth the investment when I’m getting 3 to 4 migraines a day sometimes more often, Losing my vision and  going practically blind and getting very nauseated, getting very confused and dizzy and because of all this I can’t work or barely leave the house, have a social life or drive.  

 My hope with this medication is that I will be able to regain some of my life back and hopefully be able to work and drive again.  But because the medication is so expensive and because I cannot work I need donations to be able to afford this medication. 

My doctor said they will be coming out with a pill form soon,  hopefully that option will be cheaper and my insurance will cover it but in the meantime any donations would be greatly appreciated, my go fund me page link is listed below. 

 

Any questions please let me know😃

I’m 32 years old and have been suffering from Chronic Migraines for 7 years. I have had migraines all my life, the first one was when I was in 4th grade, and as I got older they got worse. My migraines turned into chronic migraines 7 years ago and have become so debilitating that I can no longer work or have much of a social life. Bright lights and fluorescent lights are a major trigger, so I have to wear dark sunglasses most of the time. Because of that, I can no longer work, go shopping or be outside for a long time. Over the last 7 years I’ve learned how to live with this disease. Many people don’t understand the pain & sickness because Chronic Migraines are a silent disease. I get migraines 3-4 times a day, I loose my vision, and get very nauseous and confused. The only thing I can do when this happens is take my medications and sleep. I’ve been trying to get disability for 7 years now & had no luck. The problem with this illness is because you can’t see it like a broken arm or leg etc. Everyone thinks it’s not a big deal. Unless you have experienced this, many will never understand. To be honest, I wouldn’t want them to. This disease is a nightmare and wouldn’t want anyone else to go through this. I have suffered so long and am still suffering, that I have depression now. After 7 years I have learned a lot of information and tricks, and that’s what I want to share. My goal is to help others get through this day by day, because I understand what your going through. I understand the excruciating pain, the times where you don’t want to move your head because it feels like a cement block. I understand all the times people have passed you off because they think your exaggerating or being lazy. I understand all those times the doctors have just given up on you. I have had countless tears over the last 7 years. I have a great family and I try and get by with what I have and that’s what’s important. If I could I would start a charity or organization for people with Chronic Migraines so we wouldn’t have to rely on the government when we simply cannot work because the moment we start a job within 10 min we would have a migraine. I sympathize with all of you. I have been through it all. I’ve tried many treatments and medications and tried many natural ways to help. I’ve learned a lot over the last 7 years and I want to share and help others in need as much as I can. I want to share what has worked and what hasn’t, Tricks that make the headaches and migraines get better, and information on migraines and the different types of migraines. My mission is I want to help others that suffer like I do. If I help 1 person that will be enough for me. God Bless
