You may have heard Melany’s story on the news or read about it in the paper. Her story rings true for so many. She developed migraines with aura while pregnant. I recently interviewed Melany about her experience for our blog.
Q: Melany, When did you start getting migraines?
A: Spring 2011, I wasn’t sure what it was, as I’d never had anything like it before. My head was really hurting; I felt super sick and weak. I couldn’t get out of bed. I stayed at home and hid in my closet as the pain was too much to handle.
Q: What were the migraines like? What did you do about it?
A: I called my doctor as I felt really sick and couldn’t get out of bed. I remember having ice on my head and that seem to help only for a little while. I had never experience something like it so I didn’t know what was going on. He told me I had a migraine and some woman get them because of a hormonal change, he prescribed me migraine medicine but there is always a side effect and being pregnant I didn’t really want to take risk. I bought the medicine but I avoid taking it because of the migraine glasses.
She tried our glasses and found them immensely helpful. Fortunately, her photophobia-induced migraines ended after pregnancy. She is now migraine-free and has a healthy toddler! Our proprietary blend of the FL-41 tint made such a difference in her life that she came to work for Axon Optics. Pregnancy migraines can be prevented or minimized without the need for medications.
