Leg pain and migraines in a young woman

Click on the play button to listen:

I am a 23 year old woman who has had migraine headaches about 3 times a week for about 6 years. For the past year, I started having pains in my lower legs. The pain got so bad that I could not sleep at night. Some nights I didn't want to go to sleep because my legs hurt so bad. I saw all sorts of doctors from neurologists to sleep doctors. And I was put on many medications to stop the pain and to help me sleep better. No one could figure out the cause, but my leg pain just kept getting worse. I was referred to Dr. Schubiner and enrolled in the Mind Body Medicine Program. After the 3 week program, my migraines stopped and so did my leg pain!! I was not sure if the program was going to work for me, but I did my writing exercises and my meditations and all of a sudden, I realized the headaches had stopped. And even better, each day my legs hurt less and less until that pain was gone. I am so happy now! Thank you so much.
