Week 3

So it’s Wednesday, heading into week 4, so here is my report from last week. In the past week, I have had 4 days with Frova and 3 days without. That is a great ratio.

This is how the week looked:

2 double frova days with level 3 migraine

2 single frova days but with a lingering ache for most of the day. That is new to me.

But the frova free days were 100% pain free. I still stop and try to feel inside my head to see if anything is coming along to blindside me but the days have truly been pain free.

What I especially love is the waking up without a migraine. That is a real treat. Now whether that is the Aimovig, the pillow or the ginger tea, I really don’t care. I am just thrilled that I am waking up pain-free. For too long I was waking with mild to severe migraine pain.

I am getting my next delivery of Aimovig on Friday but won’t inject util the 31st as I am taking it on the last day of the month.

I am also getting my Botox injections on Friday. I am not 100% convinced that they are necessary or helpful as I had daily migraine after the last set of injections but the neurologist wanted me to continue so I will this time. I’ll chat with her on Friday about the possibility of stopping the Botox if the Aimovig is proving helpful.

I am also considering returning to get more acupuncture to see if that helps. I was having it done last summer but there was so much smoke and my migraines were so severe that I felt like I was throwing an ant at an elephant with the acupuncture. Now that things have calmed a bit, maybe my body will be more receptive to it.

I wish you a good week.
