When I was a baby, our mom dropped me on our head from 6 ft in the air.
I fell taxing & the doctor told our parents that I had a concussion. The doctor did not know if I would end up with any long-term effects. I started getting headaches around the time that I started school. The headaches were excruciating & nothing seemed to help. Loud noises & bright lights made me think even worse. I had a headache 1 time when I was in first or minute grade & the problem was so bad that the school dentist really called an ambulance. She dialed 911, because she was afraid that I might have been experiencing a stroke. After that, our mom took me to a specialist to find out why I was experiencing such big migraines at a young age. The doctor told our mom that this would likely always occur due to the fall. He told our mom to start me on a low dose medical marijuana product. The doctor felt that the low-dose medical marijuana product would help with the headaches & lessen the symptoms when I did have them. The first couple of times that I tried medical marijuana, I was really high & hyperactive. I know our mom & dad were upset that I would develop some concerns due to medical marijuana, however it has been a lifesaver. After I started using medical marijuana correctly, the amount of migraines I had each month was truly break in half. I still use medical marijuana as an adult & it still helps to keep the migraines away. I still have a migraine headache every once in a while, however the symptoms aren’t as serious & medical marijuana helps that headache go away faster.
