Sorry I’ve been a lil’ MIA...and those of you that messaged me...forgive my absence. Moose had surgery...+ my (what possibly was my gallbladder attacked me) and it has been a doozy. Sheesh. But I posted about Aimovig + Botox so we are all caught up. I’m trying to wrangle my gallbladder on my own to prevent any surgery (all tips welcome...ACV 🤢...but I can sacrifice if that’s what has to happen🙄) What’s new with y’all? • • • #madethisway #avmsurvivor #semicolon #strongwoman #sideeffects #stopthestigma #strokesurvivor #migraineyousonofabitch #aimovig #ugh #mystoryisntoveryet #needles #pills #botoxisthenewblack #occipitalneuralgia #chronicillness #migraine

Hi! Realized I haven't updated in a while. My ns checked via upright MRI for CCI-luckily I don't have it! We are all still puzzled about my neck pain, as that has been worsening. On vacation we hit a deer, luckily everyone is ok, my neck just got jerked around a lot and hurt more. So we went to the ER just to make sure everything was ok and luckily it was! This is a picture of a quilt top that I have finished! I got it quilted and all I need to do now is the binding! So starting tomorrow I'm going to do a pain management program recommended by my doctor. It will help teach me how to cope with the mental side of pain and build up my endurance. I will post updates from that but we will have to wait and see how tired I am after the day is done (it goes from 8-4:30!) #chiarimalformation #chiari #chiaristrong #chiarisucks #brainsurgery #occipitalneuralgia #painmanagement #painmanagementprogram #chronicillness #chronicallyill #chronicallyillteen
Hey friends, I recently found out I have degenerative disc disease and cervical spondylosis. Unfortunately, there is no cure for degenerative disc disease, it is typically a journey to learn to live with life long chronic pain. It is a lot to share but I wanted too. I wanted to also thank my family, friends and my rock, Sara for believing in me, being there for me and understanding that this is real and unfortunate but a manifestation of EDS. I feel lucky to have been diagnosed so that I can try to work on decreasing my pain. I am going to be meeting with Dr. Bolognese in NYC to go over my MRIs and have a third opinion for surgeries/surgery. They are ruling out Chiari Malformation and CSF leak once and for all. Dr. Bolognese is a renowned neurosurgeon specializing in Chiari Malformation and other brain and spine diseases. I am lucky enough to be able to have a Skype interview with him to go over my scans and get a confirmed, 3rd opinion from the best Doc on the east coast. He also specializes in EDS. I just wanted to say that if you know someone with chronic pain, be there for them, to talk and cry to, be there to listen, tell them you love them, encourage them, have mercy on them. You have no idea how much it helps. No idea. This past year has been one of the hardest in my life, hoping this coming year allows me to become more comfortable and tolerate my pain so I can try to live my life the best I can. Don’t give up hope, be your own best advocate, surround yourself with people who love and support you, and love your self no matter what. #chronicpain #warrior #family #friends #love #support #help #eds #degenerativediscdisease #chronicmigraine #occipitalneuralgia #cervicalfacetsyndrome #cervicalspondylosis #osteoporosis #27yearsold #chronicinflammation #beyourownadvocate #dontgiveuphope #loveyourself #connectivetissuedisorder

Most people think migraines are just a “bad headache”, but it really is so much more than that!!This graphic lists some of the other symptoms of chronic migraine. 🤕 Most days I struggle with around 14 of the symptoms listed on this graphic. Thankfully nausea and vomiting is not one of my typical daily symptoms! When it is all bets are off and I am in bed for the day. I share this to bring awareness for myself and other migraine sufferers (not for you to feel sorry for us.) So many people suffer from migraines and each migraineur is different with what treatments help or aggravate their symptoms. This is a complicated disease that not even the top neurologists fully understand. #prayforacure #notjustaheadache #chronicmigraine #migraineawareness #chronicpain #occipitalneuralgia #icandoallthingsthroughchrist

I always get a sore neck with my migraines. The neck starts hurting before my head does, so at first I assumed that my neck pain was causing migraines. I used to work in an office job sitting at a computer all day, and I thought that I had neck problems caused by my posture and computer use. I did an ergonomic assessment, bought an expensive new chair, saw a physio and did neck exercises and stretches daily. I even downloaded a computer program that forced me to take breaks every 20 minutes to look around, stretch etc. Nothing seemed to help. As a migraine progresses, the neck pain gets progressively worse. Eventually, I concluded that the neck pain is part of a migraine rather than the cause of it. However, I get pain around the region of my greater occipital nerve... And if the nerve is pinched or inflamed by tight muscles, that can contribute to migraine involving the greater occipital nerve. It's a viscous cycle, and there are so many possible factors contributing to what's going on in my head!!!!!

🤕⚡️ Today has been a MASSIVE reminder that I have Trigeminal Neuralgia. I thought I had been doing better, because ever since my Gabapentin was increased I barely have had attacks. Even my flare ups were extremely minimal. And then...I woke up today back in a world where everything hurts. It’s back to feeling like there is rusty barbed wire dragging slowly down my face whilst ice picks hooked up to car batteries send unrelenting, unstoppable sharp electrical charges all over the right side of my face and head. A constant migraine has fueled the torture and nothing, not even my narcotic pain medications, has made a difference.😰 The damned referral from KP needs to go through to the Neurosurgeon quickly so I can get my 5th surgery underway and hopefully reach some kind of relief. #spoonie #spoonies #spoonielife #spoonieliving #spoonieprobs #spoonieproblems #spoonietruth #spoontheory #spooniewarrior #spooniestrong #chronic #chronicliving #chroniclife #chronicpain #chronicillness #chronicillnesses #chronicmigraine #chronicmigraines #chronicfatigue #trigeminalneuralgia #trigeminalneuralgiasucks #trigeminalneuralgiaawareness #occipitalneuralgia #neuralgia #neurosurgery
Today I had a neurologist appointment with a new doctor. I always have anxiety when going to a new medical professional. I have had so many terrible experiences. I have had doctors tell me that there’s nothing wrong with me and it’s all in my head. I have had nurses tell me that from my vital I appeared to be as healthy as can be. I have had hateful glares from other patients and been the youngest in the waiting room too many times to count. ✨ But today....today was a successful appointment! This doctor listened to all of my concerns, did a thorough exam, and ordered appropriate tests, all while in agreement with me that these new symptoms need addressing. 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 I don’t know what the outcome of the tests will be, but for the first time in a while I feel like I have a specialists who has my back and wants answers for me.

First full week back at work in two months. I’m not smiling because it hurts my nerves, but hey I’m alive and vertical! It’s the little things in life and if I’ve missed your attempts to contact me, I apologize. Somethings are too much when a flare up occurs. I will always love you all my friends. #trigeminalneuralgia #occipitalneuralgia #POTS
5 years ago I was starting my journey to gaining control of my chronic pain. I am so thankful that I was able to complete Mayo’s pain rehab!

Doctor is also gonna change up the way he does the actual injection on me since the last one didn’t work on me. So between that and another round of Botox in October. #occipitalneuralgia #chronicillness #chronicpain #nerveblock #botox 💉💉💉 I’m glad I’m getting over my fear of needles 💉💉💉

It’s summer time and it’s HOT! ☀️🔥 Summer heat can be especially hard on our bodies, specifically #pots patients. Making sure you’re drinking enough can be super difficult, and sometimes honestly, annoying. 💦💦💦💦 I feel like I GUZZLE water all day but I know I’m still mildly dehydrated because my body doesn’t absorb and hydrate correcting. Keep drinking, keep eating salty foods, and don’t be afraid of sports drinks! #powerade and #propel are my best friends this time of year. #hydrate #stayhydrated #summertime #heat #chronicillness #chronicpain #autoimmune #autonomicdysfunction #dysautonomia #pots #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #thoracicoutletsyndrome #tos #crps #occipitalneuralgia #mitralvalveprolapse #raynauds #spinalstenosis #arthritis #anxiety #ptsd #degenerativediscdisease #bursitis #tmj #hashimotos #hypothyroidism #multichemicalsensitivitydisorder #chronicpainprincess

My transformation! . Not who I was, but learning to live with who I have become and work with what you can do. . So difficult to focus on the positive when the negative is easier. Not everyday is a good day, lots of new obstacles to try and figure out. Not the same shape or amount of muscle that I had in my last show. New training, different training and new goals, different goals. Working with my hubby @ifbbpromikelynds and @excelfitnessonline to see what I can do, along with many specialists. . #fitmombusymom #fitmom #occipitalneuralgia #occipitalneuralgiaawareness #chronisillness #chronicpainwarrior #bikiniathlete #showprep #thelyndsden #thelyndsdenfitness #familyfirst #ifbbpromikelynds #cbbf #cbbfnationals #cbbfbikininationals #nsabba #cpa #supplementkingbridgewater #advancedgenetics #sjm #sjmathenabikinisponsoredathlete #athenadesignsinc #excelfitnessonline
I wanted to take a minute to talk about a serious and perhaps uncomfortable topic. The opioid crisis. Far too many people are dying of overdoses. Many, many of these deaths are preventable. This is a naloxone kit. It is available for free in pharmacies across Ontario. And in the case of an opioid overdose, it could save a life. I think everyone should carry one. “But I don’t use hard street drugs!” You say. Doesn’t matter. I, for example, take a mild opioid painkiller when my occipital neuralgia headaches or hypermobility spectrum disorder body pain are really severe. I use it sparingly and take it as directed. But what if, god forbid, one of the kids I hang out with or teach somehow gets into the meds I carry? I’d never forgive myself if I wasn’t carrying naloxone. And I live in an urban area. What if someone on the street is suffering an overdose and needs help? What if a friend or family member overdoses on prescription medication or street drugs? It’s the kind of thing you hope to never use, but it’s important to have. Because real people, good people take prescription opioids. Real people, good people take street drugs. So get your naloxone, get trained, and keep it on you. #opioidepidemic #opioidcrisis #naloxone #opiodcrisis #narcan #occipitalneuralgia #hypermobilityspectrumdisorder
O QUE É BLOQUEIO DO NERVO OCCIPITAL? - Trata-se da injeção de um anestésico (em geral, lidocaína), através de infiltração, próximo ao(s) nervo(s) occipital(is), que se localiza um de cada lado do couro cabeludo, originando-se no pescoço; - Existem o Nervo Occipital Maior e o Nervo Occipital Menor. Nenhum deles possui função motora, apenas sensorial, mas ambos podem causar dor; - O bloqueio é indicado nos seguintes casos: ⚬ Neuralgia Occipital, que segundo estudos, tem relação com a Fibromialgia; ⚬ Cefaleias Cervicogênicas; ⚬ Enxaquecas; - O objetivo é diagnóstico e terapêutico e o tratamento, ambulatorial; 🌟Ontem, após dar entrada pelo segundo dia no PS com crise de enxaqueca, o médico que me atendeu me sugeriu o procedimento. Topei na hora. Estava com tanta dor que nem parei pra pensar nos possíveis riscos ou sentir medo. Além disso, ele me transmitiu muita confiança e garantiu que eu ficaria no mínimo de 7 a 10 dias sem dor, o que, no meu caso, é um verdadeiro milagre. E vocês? Conhecem o bloqueio do nervo occipital? Alguém já fez? O que achou? #bloqueiodonervooccipital #enxaqueca #tratamentoambulatorial #neuralgiaoccipital #infiltração #lidocaína #doencacronica #dorcronica #doençainvisível #fadigacrônica #fibromialgia #vivendocomdor #occipitalnerveblock #migraine #infiltration #occipitalneuralgia #lidocaine #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #invisibleillness #fibromyalgia #spoonie

I just made an executive decision to take some oils internally in a veggie cap. Many people freak out about ingesting oils, but the same people probably pop pills like candy without even questioning the ingredients? I can say that with absolute certainty as I used to be a member of the PP club... god knows what that was doing to my insides! #elevatedliving #naturalpainrelief #neckpain #painintheneck #vergingonamigraine #occipitalneuralgia #tightneckandshoulders
Yesterday was a huge day for me! I was so anxious to go to the doctor! It was Botox day as well as AIMOVIG DAY! • • • After my 31 injections of Botox and I received my first injection in my stomach of the new very hopeful migraine drug AIMOVIG! My fingers are crossed that this miracle drug along with everything else I take will help reduce the number of attacks I have monthly. 🤞🏼 • • • #aimovig #migraine #avmsurvivor #strokesurvivor #warrior #botoxisthenewblack #moi #madethisway #braindamage #butyoudontlooksick #keepingchronicpretty #semicolon #injections #occipitalneuralgia #chronicillness #dreamingofacure #migraineyousonofabitch
Yesterday, I got home to a lovely little thank you card from @themightysite for being a contributor! 💙💜 I have been writing my blog now for almost a year & stumbled into the Mighty about six months ago. My first post published was about how I actually celebrate every year with my chronic pain condition, Trigeminal Neuralgia! Thank you for the lovely card, Sarah, I'll continue to share my story, hopefully help someone else struggling with having a condition that no one has ever heard of(!) & make a few friends along the way. ✌💖💕 . . . #thepaincorner #themightysite #themighty #mightycontributor #chroniccommunity #chronicillness #chronicpain #trigeminalneuralgia #nervepain #neuralgia #occipitalneuralgia #spooniesisters #lifestyleblogger #livingwithchronicillness #livingwithchronicpain #disabilitypride #writersofinstagram #happywednesday
Yes, I’m far beyond being annoyed. Usually a bad flare doesn’t (thankfully) last too long. Especially when I can determine the cause (dehydration, exhaustion, adrenal fatigue, etc) and can treat it. I have no clue what is causing so much pain. I do know I’m pretty miserable. And SO over it. #chronicpain #chronicillness #spoonie #allouttaspoons #paingry #occipitalneuralgia #trigeminalneuralgia #flare #severebackpain #legcramps #chills #exhaustion #fatigue
Travis Barker is also a Trigeminal Neuralgia Warrior⚡⚡⚡If you haven't seen one of my many awareness posts concerning this terrible disorder, I hope I got your attention with this one 😆 TN is a progressive disorder with no cure, dubbed the Suicide Disease. Some people find relief with anti-seizure medications, essential oils, natural supplements, acupuncture, heating pads, radiation or even brain surgery. We need a cure. Please visit The Facial Pain Association website to learn more or to donate 💕 There's too many of us living in pain with no answers. @travisbarker #trigeminalneuralgia #occipitalneuralgia #TN #suicidedisease #neuralgia #chronicillness #spoonies #spooniecommunity #nervedisorder #shinelightonrarediseases
With the launch of our new program yesterday I have ALL the feels. Call me silly but I seriously feel like I’ve been tearful about it non stop. 🤭🤷🏼‍♀️ 6 months ago I let fear and chronic pain run my life. I went through the day afraid of my next flare. I honestly wasn’t truly living at all, I was stuck. Stuck in between wanting a serious change but to afraid to do anything about it. With the support and constant encouragement from my friend and now coach who KNEW there was more to my story I was able to put fear aside and slowly launch myself into a totally new life. But trust me when I say nothing happened over night, it has been a process, and don’t get me wrong there have been painful days and a few flares here and there but I am still doing it. I put fear aside, I changed from negative self talk to positive affirmations daily, I surround myself with a uplifting community on a regular basis and day by day I got stronger. Today I am SO happy to report I am a NEW me! I am no longer afraid. I no longer let fear run my life. And for the first time EVER I am able to participate in a program launch a long side of my team. Something I always let fear hold me back from! So I challenge you to push yourself outside of your comfort zone and if you are afraid let’s chat, I have ALL the tools and then some to help you throw fear aside and become a new you too! 🙌🏻#coachlifeisthebestlife #chronicpainwarrior #chronicpainfitness #chronicpainsurvivor #occipitalneuralgia #chronicheadpain #fitnurse #pilotwifelifestyle #pilotwife
When life throws you a curve ball, be sure to hit the ground running.’👩🏼👊🏻 #bestrong #stayready #letmeatem My neuro is away for a month so it looks like I have a new hospital, new neurosurgeon and new team this time around!🤦🏼‍♀️ I was admitted into Johns Hopkins 07/16 after becoming very ill and after a bunch of diagnostics and a lumbar puncture I am now scheduled to have a fibrin blood patch procedure tomorrow and an operation later on this week. Sounds like this neurosurgeon wants to take a different route and thinking my issues may be different than what we may have thought... This is stressful enough but with all the help with The GoFundMe Kristin made, woodsnwaves shirts, YoBuck and the hunt giveaway, fishermanmag I can’t be more thankful for such amazing people involved and all my friends and family.

Went from severe everyday now I'm at mild majority and severe occasionally but yes always in pain every second of every day I can handle it for the most part except on those bad days. Today's a good day! #ankylosingspondylitis #fibromyalgia #occipitalneuralgia
Life update (if that's not your cup of tea then peep this throwback back and white look and have a good day🖤): I went to a new neurologist appt today (well new. .old since I saw this guy 4 yrs ago and was too hesitant to do the treatment he was offering at the time which was prophylactic migraine meds that were in the class of anti seizure meds). If you'll remember, I had decided to embark on this journey this spring after realizing that what I thought were constant sinus infections were just continuous migraines since my allergy panels came back totally clean. I decided to try again and see if I couldn't improve my quality of life. Today has me a bit anxious and freaked out and fearful. The issue when you talk about about going to see specialists and try treatments is that you always worry in the back of your mind that something else is gonna go wrong or that the doctors won't believe your suffering or any myriad of fears that your mind can latch onto. So I guess the appt went fine. He read all my old info, updated what else I've been diagnosed with and have taken, and immediately honed in on 2 things. I guess when you've tried so many things to no avail that you kind of go to the last resorts, or at least some less run of the mill ones. I am now working on becoming a patient to try Aimovig. You may have read about this in the news; it is a brand new type of once a month injectable migraine drug that does a bunch of sciencey stuff that you are better off googling then me explaining. It is brand new so this will take some time to receive. He also wants me to try nerve blocks for what he has diagnosed as occipital neuralgia (again, google). That scares me to imagine needles put in the base of my skull, but there is little risk and if it works it opens up alot of possibilities. A ton of stuff to think about. I'm scared honestly. Scared to lose the little I have left of life that's tolerable with my vertigo and constant migraines. Hope is in the distance..I'm not quite there yet. I don't know if I can let myself get there. But I can say I tried..or am going to try. That's gotta count for something. Thoughts are welcome below! 🖤

I’m celebrating a #milestone today! I am finally able to cook again without serious pain! Over the last two weeks I’ve done a few extras and I’m seriously so happy about the little things! Hopefully, I’ll mend a little every day until I’m able to do more. It’s so hard because I’m an all or nothing kind of person. I want to jump in with both feet but I’m learning to pace myself. I’ve been looking at deadlines which really stresses me out, however, I must believe that something better is waiting! #chronicpainwarrior #chronicpain #occipitalneuralgia

My oldest came home from Europe 🇬🇧 tonight bearing such thoughtful gifts. 🎁A pin from the Nightengale Museum, soap from “The Palace” 🏰🤴👸🏼a travel bookmark because I love both travel and reading, and a beautiful ornament from the Tower of London. ✈️Travel is definitely more complicated these days.... if I have to take an ice chest, and my whole migraine travel pack to my other daughter’s basketball game for one day, just think about how complicated travel across the world would be.
