Chronic Migraines Made Daily Life Unbearable — Until I Tried This Ancient Technique

2013 was the most hectic year of my life — one that brought on debilitating chronic migraine headaches I only found relief from after taking a risk on what I’d heard about the benefits of acupuncture.

I had just returned from a semester abroad in Australia. While I was away, Hurricane Sandy destroyed my home which meant that, upon returning back to the States, I was technically homeless.

I was sleeping in the living room at my grandmom’s house while working 40 hours a week as a server and also commuting eight hours a week to school, where I was my last semester of six classes.

To top it all off, I was suffering from almost daily migraines that were absolutely, completely, totally unbearable.

To be honest, the migraine symptoms I experienced were so I didn’t even know they were strange migraines at first.

It started subtly, with dull pain at the base of my head. The headaches didn’t happen that often and, though uncomfortable, the chronic pain was still bearable.

Until it wasn’t.

Eventually, it evolved into a sharp pain, still localized at the base of my head, but with additional shooting pain in my left eye.
