‘#Severe ’ #pollution to return, days to get colder, hazier - Times of #India#GURUGRAM : With wind speed picking up, Gurugram’s #airquality index (AQI) improved to 336 on Saturday, still ‘very poor’ but better than the ‘severe’ l. #asia#ozone#atmosphere
15+ migraines a month are categorized as a “chronic” condition! Headaches are the #1 complaint of (TBI) Survivors that can last for years after your injury! While some over-the-counter meds provide relief, prescribed medications are often needed to help manage recurring episodes. Maintaining hydrated & avoiding “trigger” foods: caffeine, chocolate, cheeses, alcohol, MSG, etc., are useful tips. However, migraines can come on rapidly accompanied by nausea, vomiting, light & noise sensitivity. The pain can be isolated in one area or throbbing throughout your entire head/neck!
I’ve suffered from migraines since my Severe (TBI). I’ve tried several prescribed medications with zero results! It was then that my Neurologist suggested Botox. I’ve been receiving Botox injections for nearly a year, every 3 months. Thankfully, my migraines have drastically reduced! I’ll occasionally get a migraine depending on my rehab activities, weather, stress level and/or new medications, but overall, it’s been a lifesaver for me! Botox injections are not for everyone, but if you are having as many migraines as I was, I strongly suggest that you speak to your Neurologist about it.

Pictured here are the tendons of the flexor digitorum superficialis as well as the flexor digitorum profundus, seen just underneath.
The muscles attached to these tendons are actually found in the forearm; their main function is to flex the metacarpophalangeal as well as proximal and distal interphalangeal joints of the 2nd - 5th digits (aka, to bend the fingers, from index to pinky!)
