Bianca Manalo recently had an insightful vlog where she shared about her struggles dealing with severe migraine.
On Saturday, October 2, the actress opened up how her migraine attacks affect her daily life.
“'Yung mga migraine attacks ko, as in, hindi ako nakakapag-function. Like hindi ko mahawakan 'yung phone ko, hindi ko mabasa 'yung phone ko and 'yung iPad ko 'pag ginagamit ko, as in, sandali lang, e siyempre mag-review ng script dahil sine-send lang sa email ang script namin sa work... 'Pag nanonood ako ng TV, nagkaka-attacks din ako.”
She revealed about undergoing a medical test.

“Nagkakaroon ako ng attacks ng super severe migraine and hindi alam kung bakit. So, nakausap ko 'yung mga doctors ko, ang sabi nila magpa-CT scan ako. But siyempre, sabi ko, bakit magpapa-CT scan. Baka mamaya, in the end, ang hihingin din nila, magpa-MRI na ako talaga ng brain. So, I had to go brain MRI, MRA with contrast, para malaman na talaga kung ano 'yung nagko-cause ng migraine attacks ko.”
According to Medical News Today, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan uses a large magnet, radio waves, and a computer to create a detailed, cross-sectional image of internal organs and structures.
Bianca then went on to share the result of the test.
“Thank God, It's all normal. All my blood vessels are normal and 'yung skull ko and brain ko are all unremarkable. Medical term is 'unremarkable', meaning to say, all normal. So, thank you kay Lord na normal but siyempre up to now, medyo nafu-frustrate na ako kasi up to now I'm still having the attacks.”
She also recalled about consulting to ophthalmologist and optometrist.
“Ang sabi rin sa akin ng first eye doctor was it's called ‘digital strain’.”
As per American Optometric Association, computer vision syndrome, also referred to as digital eye strain, describes a group of eye- and vision-related problems that result from prolonged computer and other gadgets.
