I had my first migraine at age 14, it was silent but terrifying, I could see properly, that was just the beginning, since then I have suffered temporary hearing loss, vision loss, flashing lights and loss of feeling in my face and hands from migraines! I'm currently taking Gabapentin on lowest dose to prevent the migraines, this doesn't always work but I don't want to up the dose as I don't want the 'numbing' effect like i had on Topamax!
Anyway, I know my migraines are sometimes caused by stress ( I'm a total stress head) but I also know a lot are caused by natural and artificial lighting, I'm getting glasses with a filter to remove the blue in light and that also go darker in all lights, not just in UV light, I'm hoping this will enable me to get off the medications altogether. If you have an over sensitivity to, or find you suffer migraines after being exposed to, certain lighting it may be worth seeing if you are sensitive to the blue in lighting? I will report on here how I get on but I desperately want to be medication free for this as I have to take so much other medication for other conditions I suffer from.
I hope these glasses work, I may be clutching at straws but I'm hoping for a miracle. Thanks for reading lovelies xx
