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 migraines. 😣 When my headache gets really bad I have to lay down in a dark and quiet room.🛏
Did you know 1 in 7 people worldwide 🌎 live with migraines? They are not the same as regular headaches. It’s a headache that often begins as a dull ache and grows into throbbing pain 😖. 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. Migraines can last a couple of hours to 4 or more days! 😲
This all sounds very depressing and gloomy, and I can assure you it’s no fun. But despite my migraines I enjoy life very much! Like with my friend, Zippy. He and I have so much fun together. We especially like solving mysteries 🕵️‍♀️ and there have been a lot of mysteries around Chargieville!
I’m no mystery though. Here’s all you need to know:
Name: Migrainopod
