Tuesday, May 18, 2010 - Update

After 16 hours, I'm finally getting some relief from a horrendous migraine. I've never had one this bad before. . .I don't know what was worse; the headache or the nausea. It has been so bad that it makes me wonder if I have ever truly had a migraine before. Time has a way, however, of making you forget pain. Thankfully, Granmda Mary came and picked Olivia up around 11 am and Ryan brought her home after work. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. So, I had the whole day to spend in the quiet darkness of my room with my faithful kitty. Autumn didn't leave my side all day. She is such an awesome companion. I have to say that I missed my little girl today even though I needed the time to myself. I really really missed her though. So, why didn't I go to the doctor? From what I understand, because of a medication that I am currently on, I can't take most migraine medications. I'm stuck with the over the counter stuff that rarely does anything. After this last migraine, however, I think I'm going to have to talk to my doctor about doing something different. It's such a panicky feeling not knowing when the pain will strike or how long it will last. But, I am finally feeling a bit better and I hope I don't have another one of these for a long, long time.



Sounds awful, but I am glad you feel better. I would ask your Dr. how much over the counter you can take also. A few years ago I found out that I could take much more for short periods of time that I had thought and that helped a bunch. I hope you get some relief!!

I keep some Vicadin around the house just for migraines. It's the only thing that helps simply because it makes me sleep-and when I wake up, usually it's better. I'm sorry :(!!!
