  • Giveaway!!! @quanah17 subscribed and notification are on! (For all sm) our migraine journeys are practically identical! From ages and types of migraines, to medications! I did acupuncture and it helped a little, but I truly feel it’s all about diet and lighting for me! I love you and hope you find more cures for these stubborn things!����

  • Hi, I have suffered from chronic migraines for almost five years I’ve seen a neurologist multiple times and gotten lots of medication (both preventative and otherwise) nothing seemed to help and I felt like I was taking a pharmacist cocktail in the evenings. I have a daith piercing, which has decreased the frequency and often the intensity over the past two years however, my migraines are now affecting my sleep. I don’t really know how to express the frequency because it feels like they never really end. I don’t take any of the medication anymore because I felt it was doing more harm than good! I switched from coffee to tea in the hopes to decrease my caffeine intake, and I haven’t had a soda in four years! My migraines are caffeine sensitive, light sensitive, and are often triggered (or intensified) by synthetic scents like perfumes and lotions. I am about to start my freshman year in college, I’m a cheerleader at my new school and a premed major. I’m terrified that my migraines are going to disable me from living my best life in college and making the grades I know I’m capable of. I know college consists of a lot of screen Time. I’ve been watching your channel for two years now and never would have guessed we had so much in common. Thank you so much for the video! As a fellow migraine sufferer, I know this really helped someone who felt helpless! Insta: j.jill23 ��

  • Instagram Giveaway & _samieee_xo ������ Already was subscribed, and post notifications are always on!�� Also part of the lovely little fam on Facebook!!�� love you Amanda!������

  • Giveaway @callie.sue I’ve been subbed for probably 2 years now! Love your channel ❤️ also, I have migraines probably 2&3 times a month. I can’t imagine getting them every day! ��

  • Giveaway & @vanessaxc96 ❤️ I’ve been subscribed for a very long time. You’ll recognize my name and photo from those “bachelorette Monday “ posts on the FB Group! Definitely can relate to your video. I have chronic migraines, done the whole neurologist thing, tried different meds that didn’t work and had about 3 MRIs. I definitely found that going to a chiropractor and taking some otc meds. I’ve basically tried many of the tips you gave except for the detox or diet and the gluten idea and glasses. ❤️❤️❤️ love you girl

  • Giveaway!!!! @_h.van92 subscribed amd notifications are on! Same migraines and I’m a mommy to 3 boys so the struggle is real. I’ve had them since I was 18 and I’m about to be 27.
    Thank you so much for making a video about your experiences! It’s a big help and I’m definitely going to try the eye mask.
    Love you!!!!!

  • Struggled with them since I was 3 years old, its the worst. For the more severe migraines the only thing i know will work is going to the ER or urgent care (way faster) and getting an IV, they call it the migraine cocktail and its a miracle. I know it sucks to get to that point but you walk out a new person.

  • I take a preventable medication everyday. I take a beta blocker I know it sounds weird but girl it helps so much. You should look into it.

  • My neurologist also told me to take vitamin B2 I take 400 mg and magnesium 500 mg each day, there’s a lot of people that say it helps look it up! I’ve also tried cbd but I don’t think I took it long enough to see any difference. I’ve also tried the essential oils but the smell was too strong for me as well and made my migraines worse too! Thanks for making this video!!
