June Is National Migraine Awareness Month: Know Your Triggers With #ExcedrinMigraine – Giveaway

Excedrin Logo

If you’ve ever suffered from a migraine you know how painful it can be, you also know that you are not alone. In fact 36 million other Americans also suffer from migraines and June is National Migraine Awareness Month.  Maybe you are like me and didn’t actually know you were suffering from a migraine and actually thought it was just a simple headache. One thing I’ve learned from using the Excedrin My Migraine Triggers App is that there are often triggers that lead to my migraines. I can also easily track my migraines to share with my doctor.

Since becoming a brand ambassador for Excedrin Migraine I’ve learned so much more about migraines. Like migraines can often have other symptoms like nausea and painful sensitivity to light and sounds.

There are a few things I’ve learned that help me keep the migraines away: 

  • Relax – I’ve found that often exercising and doing simple meditation are ways I enjoy relaxing. It’s amazing how good you feel after giving yourself time, so take a relaxing bath, read a book, take a hike, do what you enjoy most! 
  • Be Prepared – If you know that you suffer from migraines be sure to have the #1 neurologist recommended OTC brand for migraine relief – Excedrin Migraine in your cabinets. Did you know that the FDA even approved it to treat all symptoms of a migraine? It really does work!
  • Know Your Triggers – Know what your triggers are and start to track them with the My Migraine Triggers App.

I have an exciting giveaway that is everything you need to relax and stave off a migraine:
· Sleep mask
· Memory foam travel neck pillow
· Water bottle

Disclosure: I am an Excedrin® Migraine brand ambassador compensated for my time. My journey for a migraine-free experience is my own.
