After all the doctor's appointments and helpful treatments I've received here in the US, it's now been four weeks since I've experienced a migraine headache.
I feel like a different person.
Through the help of diagnosis and a treatment plan, I am implementing many changes that will hopefully prevent me from having the migraines, at least not as severely nor frequently as I was having them.
One change came in this form:
It doesn't look like much, right? Well surprisingly, it's a game changer for me.
Called the "Workrite Travelrite", it's a computer stand for my laptop that keeps me from bending my neck into a position that compresses nerves and strains muscles.
At the suggestion of the physical therapist I saw in Portland, I bought it, hoping that it would bring the relief I needed. I looked around at Best Buy, Staples and other online sites for cheaper versions, but finally decided to order the very one she uses. Am I ever glad I did! Because I spend so much time on my laptop (who doesn't these days?!), this has brought a tremendous amount of relief to me.
The company that makes them has a much higher price tag on it than where I bought it from. If this would help you from constant neck and muscle strain, you can find it HERE for a better price.
Computer stand, neck relief, uncompressed nerves, no migraines: PRICELESS.
