“I have been living with chronic migraines my whole life. As far back as grade school, cluster headaches would hit suddenly without notice and progress into migraines. I would get them at least three times a week and it got worse with age.

Originally from Nebraska, I needed a change in scenery. I packed up my things and moved to New Jersey to work as a Nanny. I love children and as time passed, the family and I grew closer together. After years of working with the children, I was asked to move to North Carolina with the family.

It has been over two years since I moved and I love it here. North Carolina is a wonderful state and Charlotte is great. At first it was a culture shock to be in the South. New Jersey is so fast paced, but Charlotte has so much charm and everyone is extremely friendly. Everything in my life was going great, only problem was the migraines.

The most recent years have been a struggle with work because the migraines continued to get worse. As a nanny, I constantly have to be on point. As the saying goes, “You have to have eyes in the back of your head.” I couldn’t do as many things with the children that I wanted.

Movies, reading, heavy physical activity all became difficult. My social life was affected as well. Since I was new to the area, I wanted to go out and meet people. That was put on hold because of headaches. The nausea, light sensitivity and pain made it so hard to life my life.

Upon being referred to Dynamic Health and Pain Management, I was really skeptical because I had been to see doctors before and they were never able to help relieve me of my headaches. I was given medicine and even took a preventative, nothing worked. No one could ever find the cause.

However, after only 7 treatments at Dynamic Health and Pain Management, I feel like a whole new person. I cannot believe the huge difference in the way I feel. My migraines have decreased to maybe one a week and when I have one, it’s not nearly as severe. If I feel this great now, I can only imagine the results at the end.

I cannot explain the care. It is unmatched. Everyone takes the time to make sure you understand each treatment. They talk to you about your condition and genuinely care about helping you improve. My only regret is not being referred to Dynamic Health and Pain Management sooner.”
