Take the Butterbur.

I’m on day 155 of no migraines.

Yesterday, my son just had his second migraine in 19 days.

I’d trade places with him in a heartbeat.

No almost 16 year old should have to deal with this shit.

Hey, look at what you got from mom!  Migraines!  Happy birthday, oh no, wait, that screws up birthdays and events.  My bad.  Sorry man, I wish you didn’t get that part of me passed down to you.

Thankfully, it didn’t seem as heavy as the last one.  He had the kaleidoscope eyes last night, and a migraine hangover today, but not as bad as the last one.  I am thankful for that.

I had him take one of my Butterbur supplements this morning.  He was not too willing, telling me he didn’t want to take my ‘weird stuff.’  Good Lord child, I’m not drugging you up, take the Butterbur.

My good friend asked if he’d drink my anti-migraine green smoothie.  I laughed and said no way.  She asked ‘even if it would help him?’ Nope.  It’s referred to as green algae by him and his sisters.

Going to go with Butterbur in the mornings, and maybe some B-2 at night, part of my anti-migraine potion.  I hope that makes the difference he needs for these to not rear their ugly head any more.

  1. I have found that magnesium at night (relaxing) and B-2 in the am (energizing) have helped. However, the biggest help for me has been diet change. It has been difficult, but it has given me much more control over my migraine (and whole body) pain. If you want to see what I eating (and not eating), I’m posting recipes and thoughts on my site. I’m hoping to help someone else who might benefit.
