Hello All,I'm going to detail my story for the first time. I hope this will encourage some of you to share any imilar xperiences with me. I also hope that hearing my story may help somone else in a similar position. I knew my life was going to change forever on Wednesday 9th June 2010. I didnt quite realise how, or how seriously. I've suffered fom headaches for a long time, as long as I can remember in fact. When I was pregnant with my daughter 6 years ago I noticed a mild whooshing noise in my right ear but thought nothing of it - how stupid that was! It wasn't until I experienced severe
