Migraines Suck


Chilling during a quiet moment at work right now. Glad that it is a quieter night then last night was. I got kicked hard with a migraine. Fun. And extra special since I’m at work. Nausea with the vomiting. Ice pick in the eye ball. Stabbing in the gut. Yeah, great times. Wearing the shades inside, during the night. That’s how much my eyes are disliking the lights right now. But the up side is that the medication that the neurologist gave me really helped. Yays! It didn’t make everything go away, but I am feeling way better. Took about an hour to get there, but that’s better then spending hours out of commission and having to go home. The pain is mostly gone. Just some left in the base of the head. And the photosensitivity is still hanging on, but I can work with that. So, this is a complete win in my book. And the prevention plan is great because this is the first one I’ve had in quite a while. That’s even better then the meds to stop it. Seriously, I’d rather not get them then to have to try to stop them once they get going. I can’t explain the gratitude that I have towards the doctor that listened and worked with me to get to this place. It’s really life changing. People who don’t have migraines really don’t understand the way that they crush you. For years, I struggled through the abdominal pain that sometimes came with head aches but mostly not. Doctors kept telling me nothing was wrong. I’m glad that I finally have the answer. I’m glad that I finally have a plan in place that is helping. I am thankful. If you are someone that is experiencing migraines, I cannot express how important it is to go to a head ache specialist or neurologist to get these treated. The difference is amazing. And if you are having problems that you haven’t gotten a diagnosis for, I’m sorry. I know how hard that is. I know what it is like to hear that there is nothing wrong when you know that there is. All I can suggest is to keep looking for the answer. Because even if it comes down to somatic delusions, there is treatment for that which can bring relief. And that means that there is something wrong. Don’t accept that there is nothing wrong. Ok, rant over 😉 I hope that all of you are doing well during these wee hours!

  1. Never had them but I’ve worked with enough people that I’ve witnessed what a physical and emotional pain they are. On a side note, it’s one of many words spelled the same but pronounced differently in the US and the UK. Take care. Cheers
