    Aura

    I started getting migraines about 5-6 years ago while I was pregnant with my son. My first migraine lasted for  about two weeks. It was hell! Once I had him, the migraines became less frequent, but more painful. I still get them about once a month or every other month...

    When I was younger and I got them I would

    scream, cry and literally writhe like I was possessed or something. It was a horrible experience. It always felt like something had exploded within my brain, and I always thought that I was dying. Ugh...I hate migraines.
