It all started about a year and a half ago, I would get migraines, they would be so bad that I couldn’t work, I couldn’t function, didn’t want to do anything buy lay down in a dark quiet room, they got worse as time went on, and I went to the doctor, he prescribed me some medication that at first helped, then after a few weeks it didn’t seem to help anymore, actually the one time I took it the headache just got worse, and I had severe pain.
The doctor sent me for tests, I had a CT scan, blood work, saw a neurologist, and had some tests done by the neurologist. All the test results came back normal, and it was good that I knew there wasn’t a serious problem but I didn’t know why I kept having the migraines if everything was so called “normal”. Then in March of this year I had a few terrible days in a row, I took a medical leave from work for 4 days, and it helped to get rest, but the headaches were pretty much coming every day now, and nothing seemed to help.
I was prescribed several different medications, and the doctor wanted me to take something daily to prevent the migraines, but I didn’t want to be on daily medication, but I really didn’t think I had much of a choice. I went to part time at work instead of full time because I was missing too much work to save my job I went from 40 hours a week, 4 ten hour days, down to 32 hours a week, 4 eight hour days.
I still struggled as I was in so much pain, and my Uncle Paul suggested I try to go to his chiropractor. He gave me the phone number, and I thought, how would a chiropractor help me? I had no idea how much and how quickly it would help. I made an appointment, I had a test done, and then after my first week of adjustments, I had no migraines, it is amazing.I am now on no medication and for the past 2 months I have had only 2 migraines, not every day.
I would wake up with a headache every day, and getting to work was a struggle, now I have no problem getting to work everyday. I feel so much better and it’s all thanks to Dr. French. If there is anyone else that I knew had a problem even similar to mine I wouldn’t hesitate to refer them to see Dr. French.
The adjustments have helped me tremendously, and I couldn’t say thank you enough, to Uncle Paul for referring me, and to Dr. French for the adjustments, and for helping me understand why I had the headaches all the time. I honestly had no idea that what happens with my back and neck could affect my headaches. I would strongly suggest anyone go see a chiropractor, it’s amazing how much they can help you.
