I was in a major vehicle accident in August 1998. Another car crossed my path (I was doing 25 and she was doing 45 mph) resulting in me getting T-boned. Before our vehicles came to a complete stop, a third vehicle (stopped at a stop sign across the road) was involved in our collision. She was in a coma for 6 months-woke up and is living her life with assistance from her family. The third person has had back/neck/knee issues since then. Although I walked away, I have neck and back problems on a daily basis.
I get migraine headache's several times a week, and sometimes they are so severe that I literally can not function, can not stand any light or sound, and a lot of the time am sick to my stomach. I was prescribed some high dose medication to deal with these migraines because nothing else I tried would work. I even went as far as to having steroid shots in my neck - which were very painful and only worked for a short time. Now when I start to get a migraine, I reach for my Lavender and Peppermint Essential Oils. I apply them generously to my forehead, temples back of neck and behind the ears. Most of the time this is all I need and the migraine subsides. If my back, neck or knee are hurting, I apply Peppermint - which brings almost instant relief.
