Excedrin Migraine June Post-National Migraine Awareness Month+ Giveaway

As you all know, I've been working with Excedrin Migraine to help support migraine awareness and relief.  I've had a wonderful and beneficial time educating myself while connecting with others.  It's important to know as much about migraine triggers and what causes them.  I've never felt as in control of my migraines as I have while working with Excedrin.



Did you know June is National Migraine Awareness month? It's time to make migraines visible! Two of the most significant reasons are: ridding ourselves of the myths and misconceptions about migraines and the resulting stigmas. Making migraines more visible could result in more research funding which could result in better migraine treatments.  Whatever you do, please band together to make migraines known and help people gain relief.

Since summer is now in full swing, this is a crucial time for migraines for me.  I know that if I stay in the sun for too long without tons of water, it's a recipe for disaster.  Too much sun in general isn't great for you, but pairing a migraine with the hot sun beating down on you is a horrific feeling.  I know my body and I know that it needs to be in the shade in hot times. I've been using the My Migraines Tracker for the past six months  and it's been such a fantastic experience.  I've learned what my triggers are, how certain moods are apt to bring on migraines, and what foods I should avoid.  I'm happy to say my migraines are in much better control now than ever.  I am eternally thankful to Excedrin and the tracker.  Research shows that the best thing you can do for controlling migraines is to identify your triggers. I still use the tracker every single day.  I like looking back and seeing past weeks and days of data. 

The best thing I can say for those who suffer from migraines is to learn your triggers, like I mentioned before.  Migraines are insufferable and they prevent life from happening while you are having one.  Listen to your body and find out what works and doesn't work.  You'll be much happier that way.

One lucky winner will win a June Excedrin giveaway featuring:
