This was a couple of days after surgery, since I did all areas that are considered points of trigger, i will go from back to front. On this part of the neck (and head ), are located the occipital nerves, when these nerves are compressed, pressed, and/or swollen, can trigger migraines (also occipital neuralgia, which sometimes is misdiagnosed as migraine, thankfully is not my case ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป ) During the surgery, the doctor cut part of those nerves, in specific parts of the muscles, where migraines are more common to hit. By the way, he found the right side one, with a different color than usual, and different size too (he canโ€™t say if it had something to do with migraines, but for sure, was better to take it out ๐Ÿ‘! ) After cutting them, the muscles are filled with fat (taken from a small cut in the lower part of my abdomen, since I had c-sections with my babies, I asked him to do it near that scar to be less visible ) to prevent them from going flat. I would say, this was one of the areas, that hurt the most during the recovery process. And my migraines are never originated on that part (I canโ€™t imagine those who suffer from occipital neuralgia ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ ) until today I still have some numbness on the back of my head (is normal, it can take from days to months, to gain complete sensitivity back after surgery ), the good part is, even if the migraines are still there, I donโ€™t feel the constant neck pain I used to have ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป. . . . . . . . #migraine #chronicmigraine #migraineproblems #sendhelp #sleep #letmesleep #momtruth #migraineawarenessmonth #nap #sleeping #livingwithmigraine #yolo #breakthestigma #migrainesurgery #tiredaf #dontjudge #momhumor #overthinking #momproblems #realmom #notlazy #netflixandchill #mariekondo #serotonin #cantsleep #nevergiveup #findingmyself #sarcasm #scarymommy #itsallaboutbalance
