I am going on a trip without my family for the first time and I'm a bit scared... to top it off I'm going to Disney World where I have always gotten terrible migraines. I'd love any and all suggestions to help the migraines be minimal. Thanks!
Try wearing sunglasses. Light really bothers me now when it didn't in the past. Maybe earplugs that don't block all sound but muffle it a bit. Hope you have a great time.
@A MyMigraineTeam Member, Now I understand! Make sure you bring everything that you use to deal with your migraines and rest as much as you can, be mindful of your triggers and avoid them as much as possible. Loud noises have always been a trigger for me, when I was a young adult one of my favorite things to do was to go out dancing. I never realized that the noise, cigarette smoke and bright flashing lights were causing the headaches I woke with the day after.
Enjoy your trip, try not to worry about getting an attack and if you do, treat it as soon as you can.
I'd love to hear back from you after your trip to see how you made out.
@A MyMigraineTeam Member, I am going with my band for school and although I've been many times I don't have many good memories since I was young so I was hoping to make some this time
If I may ask. Why are you going somewhere that you know triggers your migraine? I can't imagine Disney World on a good day (to crowded & noisy for me), on a day with a migraine attack it would be torture.
