About Adam Meredith
I got interested in Chiropractic after I broke my back (barefoot water skiing accident when I was 18) and incurred a subsequent lumbar slipped disc. So I had experienced bad back pain. But I had never suffered from migraine.
My first-hand experience of migraines occurred early in my career, as my girlfriend at the time suffered from classic migraines. I got a clear picture of what it was like living with migraines. Until you see someone suffer you cannot really understand what wretched condition migraines are, how they can ruin lives, and stop sufferers from enjoying things that most of us take for granted.
Plans for a relaxing night at home would be hijacked all the time. Planned weekends away would be ruined by a migraine attack, planned family catch-ups, canceled. Phone calls to her work had to be made, to say she could not come in that day.
Another thing l observed was the migraine postdrome. Often patients would describe it as a really bad hangover that happened once their migraine pain had subsided. My patients were telling me that they felt off or unwell, like the feeling of being hungover and this could last hours or days, further prolonging the misery of their migraines. .
