UNTIL 2 MONTHS AGO
I was getting really bad headaches for weeks on end and I was miserable. I didn't want to workout or be social (that's when you know it's bad). I have met my deductible on my insurance, so I decided to get it under control while it was free for me. I went to "Dr. Ben", who was very perplexed that I have tried so many things and nothing worked. He did the normal routine of giving me pain killers and muscle relaxers. Obviously, this was not a permanent solution. I went in multiple times when I had headaches and when I didn't and they would take my vitals and decide what to do next. He made an observation that nobody has ever made before. My blood pressure spikes really high when I get headaches. My headaches are very throbbing in my temples, especially my left one. He talked with some other doctors and decided to try something a little bit different. He gave me some blood pressure medicine to prevent my blood pressure from spiking. Now, I don't have high blood pressure normally because I am young and healthy, so he gave me some medicine that lowers the pressure going to my brain. I take it every night to try and prevent the headache from even coming on.
BOOM. NO HEADACHES.
It really has been AMAZING!! I am very pleased with how much it has helped. I don't get headaches AND I have a TON more energy. I sleep better and I don't get fatigue throughout the day. I can think clearer and I am a lot happier in my overall mood. It's so great! I have gone off the medicine to see if it really does anything and BAM! I get a headache, can't sleep, get stressed, and I am tired all day long. It's crazy!
So if you get headaches and nothing works, you should look into it! It is a different approach, but I seriously SWEAR by it!! It worked for me, so maybe it will work for you!! (wow I sound like a TV commercial)
BUT it really has changed my life!
