Long Time Migraine Sufferer
I am in my mid-60’s and was diagnosed at age 4 with migraine after I passed out with an abdominal migraine. My history is such that I have been hospitalized from them and get them so severely that I can vomit from them for 24+ hours. As I’ve gotten older, I am aware of the connection to weather changes and while I was skeptical at first, I bought the MigraineX earplugs and downloaded the app. I think that it helps me. I’m just a little over a month using them and I think that the system helps me even without medication. I generally sleep with the MigraineX earplugs in to prevent the dreaded 2:00-3:00 am migraines which immediately call for medication. I think that the app and plugs have impacted the frequency of my migraines and I have been diagnosed as a chronic migraine sufferer.
Help at last!
I have struggled with migraines since I was ten years old, so have learned to avoid most triggers. But, several years ago I noticed a correlation with changes in the weather. I was having 3-4 migraines a week, until I tried MigraineX! I found info on the website and like others did the research. I noted some controversy there, but MigraineX offered a money back guarantee. The product works! I’ve only had to take Rx meds once in several months. I love getting the alerts on the app ahead of time. I put the ear plugs in, and take an over the counter product. I rest for about 30 minutes and the can get on with my day! This product has truly been a blessing!
Not sure about accuracy.
I love the concept of this app. I have Meniere’s Disease, which is worsened by barometric pressure changes. I really love the idea of being alerted to symptomatic days & possible attacks. However, I am not sure the accuracy of the weather/pressure predictions.. Even within the app it’s self. For instance - On the home page, I am alerted for a -.2 drop on Monday. In the apps data page - it shows that it will happen on Tuesday. My main purpose for using the app, is to plan accordingly, which is hard to do with conflicting information. I’ve noted conflicting data within the app on several occasions. I’d still say this can be a handy tool, but take with a grain of salt.
