    My Migraine Story: Vestibular Migraine Diagnosis and Treatment

    by: Heilean Rosenstock-Armie In the Summer of 2017 my world was flipped upside-down. I say flipped as that is exactly how spontaneous and violent it felt.  I was sitting at my desk in work when all of a sudden I leaned forward and grabbed the edge of my desk to steady myself. I placed my head on the desk still grasping it tightly. I couldn’t look up or down. I felt as though I was at sea with no compass in a violent storm. I wasn’t sure if the room was spinning or I was spinning internally. Everything was out of sync. If anyone had said the word migraine at…

    Migraine Healthline: A New App For Migraine

    This article is sponsored by our partner, Healthline. Migraine Healthline, is the newest app that connects people with migraine. Download your free Migraine Healthline app here!  Before we found each other and created Migraine Strong, all five of us came to a point in our migraine journeys where we wanted to find others who understood what we were going through. While our families and friends are wonderfully supportive, it is different when you find others that experience what you do every day. There is a feeling of instant camaraderie when someone says ‘I know exactly what you mean.’ Through the years, we have become each other’s migraine buddies, partners, and…

    The Benefits Of Practicing Gratitude

    The benefits of practicing gratitude are almost too many to count. During this season of thanksgiving, we tend to talk about the things we are grateful about for a day or two. But it’s rare that we break down how practicing gratitude can have long lasting effects on our emotional, physical and social well being. We thought it would be interesting to look at the effects of gratitude on each of these levels and then how we are practicing gratitude in our own lives.  ** While Migraine Strong writes about the latest in migraine treatments, this is not medical advice. We are patient educators and all information you read should…

    Migraine Glasses – A Review of Indoor and Outdoor TheraSpecs

    Alicia’s migraine glasses review When I first experienced the horrible symptoms of chronic vestibular migraine I worked at a giant corporate office with an open floor plan – my worst nightmare. As my light sensitivity and ataxia got worse, I was grasping at any treatment I could to still be able to function at work. It’s a terrifying thing to be faced with expiring FMLA and still have ongoing symptoms. I found myself wearing sunglasses almost everywhere, just to get some relief. That’s when my neurologist recommended I try FL-41 glasses. Who knew that migraine glasses could help so much. Both lenses were provided to us for free by TheraSpecs in…
