Hello! My name is Migrainopod, or just Pod for short. I’m the Migraine monster. Red is my favorite color ❤️ and Zippy (Chiari Malformation monster) is my bestest friend ever! I love to read and mysteries 📚 are my favorite, but sometimes I can’t read because of migraine. 😣 When my headache gets really bad I have to lay down in a dark and quiet room.🛏

When my migraine subsides but isn’t completely gone yet, I go outside with my big dark shades. On my good days, I like to paint and build stuff. I’m very fast cause I can use all 4 tentacles at once!

Did you know 1 in 7 people worldwide 🌎 lives with migraine? They are not the same as regular headaches, in fact some people don’t get a headache at all. You can experience sensitivity to light, noise, and smells; nausea 🤢 and vomiting; upset stomach and belly pain; loss of appetite; feeling very warm or cold; fatigue; and 🥴 dizziness. They vary in length too. Migraine can last a couple of hours to 4 or more days! 😲

I’m no mystery though. Here’s all you need to know:

Name: Migrainopod
