I’ve often wondered about the root of my pain. Did something happen to me to cause these migraines or was I just born this way? Was I a stressed out little baby and it turned me into a ball of crazy ever after?
My mom was verbally and mentally abused by my alcoholic father until I was about 3 or 4. She has never has said exactly what he’d say. I only have a vague idea and a few memories. Could that abuse effect a child that young?
I suffer from fibromyalgia. It’s a syndrome which is noted to have occurrence in adults who were abused as children. I’ve never been abused as a child but I know what my mom experienced effected me deeply. I do believe it was the trigger for my young migraines. It was just at that time she left him. I’d still have to see him sporadically throughout my childhood.
I think this is plain old genetic. My own daughter has suffered from pain symptoms since she’s been little. She also suffers from migraines and I know she has not been abused as a child.
My sister and I have no contact with our father now. An amazing step-father stepped into his place and provided a safe and nurturing environment for all the migraines. Every one.
this is about my childhood with migraines.
