Rachel’s Story of Living with Chronic Migraine

I am 25 years old and live with chronic migraine due to a car accident seven years ago. Since the age of 18, I have had daily migraines that range from 3 to 5 on the pain scale. I have been to three neurologists, countless physical therapists, chiropractors, and dietitians. I have tried alternative therapies like dry needling, massage therapy, and acupuncture, but there has been no relief.

I’ve been on all medications under the rainbow and tried Botox without success. Migraines are on my mother’s side of the family. One of my aunts had success treating her migraines with Botox, but another aunt was not as lucky. My mother attributed her migraines to the late shift she worked. My grandpa had migraines, but he does not get them now due to a blood pressure medication he takes.

I believe that I will always have to live in pain for the rest of my life. I feel like I have tried everything.
