A brief history with the condition

 

"I’ve had migraines for the past fourteen years – with ten of those years being chronic. My migraine brain continues to stump my doctors, some of the best neurology and migraine specialists in the country. For many years, I have proactively done everything possible to beat migraine brain with little success.  My efforts range from treatment at a specialized in-patient neurological center to quitting my job to live on the beach in Costa Rica because I lost all hope of a migraine-free life."
