BENEFITING: MILES FOR MIGRAINE
I will be participating in the Miles For Migraine Virtual Run/Walk to raise moneybfor migraine research. As many of you know, I have Chronic Migraine. Two of my children have Episodic Migraine. Sensitivity to light, sound, noise, scents. Nausea ,vomiting, impaired vision, vertigo, brain fog, difficulty speaking, difficulty concentrating, severe pain. Those are some migraine symptoms that a migraineur might experience. It is not "just a bad headache." I am never looking for sympathy, but understanding, and always trying to raise awareness of this debilitating neurological disorder. Migraine has no cure, and funding is extremely limited for research. There is not one medication currently on the market, that has been specifically developed for migraine prevention. All the preventives chronic migraineurs use are 'borrowed' medications from other illnesses. Between medicines and natural supplements to alternative therapies, I, like many other Chronic Migraineurs have exhausted all of my options and have not been successful in decreasing the frequency of this daily beast. Migraine is complex, ad it's cause is not yet completely understood. Any donation will be greatly appreciated by me, and the over 36 million Americans who suffer from migraine. Please help me to reach my fundraising goal...any little bit helps.
