Attack of the Killer Migraine

Attack of the Killer Migraine

Migraines are the bane of my existence.

I’ve taken Maxalt, painkillers, caffeine, lots and lots of water, and even soaked up some sun.  Alas, it’s still there, turning my brain into painful mush.  I swear, I have no idea what to do to kill these things!!

My next attempt is going to be a nap, but whether that manages to happen is up in the air.

Seriously, of all things I am afflicted with, migraines have to be in the top 3 most debilitating.  I seriously wish I could manage them without being stuck in a dark room, begging for relief.

Bah humbug.

  1. A lot of my migraines are linked to congestion- sometimes if I take an antihistamine and tylenol early enough it doesn’t get too bad. After a certain point though, there’s not much I can do. Unfortunately, my current migraine medication makes me ache all over, on *top* of any existing aches. I tend to put it off except for the very worst migraines, just because the side effects are so awful. I had changed meds because my old ones knocked me unconscious for three hours and made me zonked for 8-12 hours after that- now that doesn’t look so bad. Thankfully, I’m better at controlling them than I used to be and don’t get them quite so often. *hugs*
