I appreciate the guest post, Emerson Moses

The other day I saw a commercial on headache specialist. I started getting migraines in my early twenties. They are absolutely terrible. I get about five a month. When I get them, they are just absolutely debilitating. I used satellite internet and searched for a headache specialist in the area. Luckily, after a referral from our primary care physician I got to see a headache specialist. I had to travel about forty-five minutes away, but it was definitely worth it. My doctor encouraged me to keep a log for a month about my migraines. I wrote what I ate and did that day when they started. I would note when they started and when they ended. I would also write down what I took to make myself feel better. When I went back to meet with the doctor we were able to pin point the triggers for my migraines. After tracking them and figuring out the triggers, I have been able to take much better control over my migraines. I can’t even begin to tell you what a relief it is to not get those horrible headaches!
