Stephanie’s Story of Misdiagnosis
For years, I suffered with the debilitating symptoms of migraines, especially when the weather changed. The facial pain, vomiting, light sensitivity, and aura would last from hours to days at a time. I was always told “You just have a sinus infection” and was given antibiotics, and felt better for about 2 weeks until those symptoms returned. I reached a point where I thought that I was just going to have to learn to live with these symptoms. Migraines made me miss out on work, family events and time with friends. I felt frustrated and stuck. Finally, I found a doctor that truly listened to my concerns and we worked together to recognize my triggers and find a preventative medicine that helps me keep things under control. Speak up for yourself and be your own advocate, it may change your life!
