Is there a way I can take you with me on my phone?

I thought she was already on iPhone? :cheeky:

If you backed up your phone, maybe you can reinstall the app that way.

I experienced transient aphasia during my migraines since my teens; I also get facial droop and paralysis when my migraines were untreated. It is so very scary.

That is scary! Paralysis would be terrifying. I've been getting migraines since my teen years, but only started getting migraines with transient aphasia and vision loss when I started birth control. I talked to my doctor, discontinued the birth control, but unfortunately these migraine symptoms have not subsided.

I AM with you, Far. ;)

.

That's right. Nurses ask the Siri app a lot of things. My problem is no matter how hard I try to teach her, she just doesn't understand my accent. LOL!

My second or third test in fundamentals was a migraine day. My vision was so blurry I couldn't make out what bubble was in what row on the scantron and I started crying. I ended up with my instructor having me sit in the front so she could slide a ruler along as I completed each question. That was when I learned that even though she is intimidating (my goodness that woman is scary) deep down inside she really cares for her students.

The usually don't; the thing about migraines is that there's an effect of having severe vasospasm related to the blood vessels in your brain; they are known as

vascular headaches.

I've been off birth control for about four years now, and sometimes I feel as though my speech and word recognition has changed; it may be due to the effects of being on birth control for 15 years, and the BIG ones such as Depo and Ortho Evera are no-nos for people with complex migraines...at this point and my age there is no birth control options for me that won't either be effective or risk my health; the bright side is that since I have been off birth control and know the migraine cocktail-ibuprofen, Benadryl, a GI med such rantidine works for me, and my migraine med reduces my migraine attacks, and I have avoided the ED from a major migraine attack since 2011.

I don't know how you even managed to take a test with a migraine! That must have been awful!

Turning the brightness all the way down on the laptop really helps.

So does the super strength icy hot on my shoulders and neck.

I might need to try the icy hot. Brightness on my phone and laptop is always at the lowest setting. 15 minute "naps" in a dark room also helps, though there's not always time for that.

What type of phone do you have?

I usually back up my iPhone on my laptop or in iCloud; if you have backed it up at least once while the app was on the phone, it should still be retrievable.

Some additional tips can be found on Google, YouTube, and Pintrest.
