I haven't had a damned migraine for ages.
Thought that I was finally past that...NOT!
Just a few minutes after 4:00 A.M. this morning, a migraine woke me with a slam. It felt like this...
Get up, find a yoghurt in the fridge, eat it quickly.
A buffer for the 400 mg. Motrin to follow.
Back to bed, with a steaming hot microwaved PitPac wrapped around my neck.
Close eyes, try to relax...nightmare thoughts roll through my mind while drifting in and out of sleep.
It felt like this...
At 7:00 A.M. I give up on sleep.
Get up, eat another yoghurt, take another 400 mg. Motrin.
Back to bed. Finally, blissful sleep.
Waking at half past noon, I realize that the Motrin's broken the back of the migraine.
I have no idea what caused this one. Usually, I can figure out the trigger and actually have become quite adept at knowing ahead of time what the precursers are and then taking the steps to avoid a full-blown migraine.
This one caught me unaware, for certain. Now that it's over, I'm feeling a little less nauseous, a little stronger and a little more like myself.
Weird, just plain weird.
I'm happy it's on the way out and happy to be without the blinding pain.
Just venting, that's all, just venting...thanks for listening.
“Patients with migraines know precisely when and how often and how long their headaches strike. They often come in with long lists. When you have a patient with lists, you have a patient with migraine.”
Now, I feel like this...
