Hiding Migraine Symptoms

Posted on April 06, 2018

"Yesterday was my birthday, and I think I overdid it, but I’m glad I did. I’m so happy to have enjoyed hanging out with my best friend and my family. I’m just glad I did something outside my room. Today I’m not feeling so good, but I have nothing to do but rest and relax." - A member on MyMigraineTeam
