  • by

At the end of my 3rd month on Aimovig….

Hi everybody it’s tracy i hope you’re doing well it’s been a little bit since i’ve actually updated everybody on my brain pain migraine journey so i’d like to do that today it’s actually been uh august 22nd was when i took my third dose of amovig and i’ve actually been doing very very well on this medication and it’s just been amazing i actually had was very

Interesting i migraine yesterday and it was what was interesting to me is that i was just overcome with extreme exhaustion like i would when i would normally have a migraine and because i haven’t really had any migraines i had completely forgotten what it felt like to have this uh it was considered it’s called like the pro drone period so it’s like uh just

So thankful that the amovig has worked so well for me and i hope that if you have tried everything under the sun like i had and it hasn’t helped you i hope you’ll consider speaking with your neurologist about aimovig because it may work for you and i hope that if it does it works for you as well as it’s worked for me too so i just wanted to update everyone on my

Brain pain it’s just i’m just so thankful that i’m doing as well as i am on the emo bag and i hope that all of you other fellow migraneers i hope that you’re doing well i know if you’re in southern california or if you’re not right now we’re experiencing a lot of wildfires and the smoke has just been tremendous and it’s also a huge trigger for migraine so i’m so

Sorry if you’re suffering from migraines right now and i hope you’ll all take care thank you all
