I can’t think right now and therefore, I’m pausing today’s throwback Thursday.
When I get home, I might dig up a picture and post it.
I said might.
This headache has the potential to become a migraine.
Yah, for me.
I started suffering from migraines when I was seventeen – about the same time that I got my first kidney stone – and the episode that triggered it made my parents think that I had Meniere’s disease. It was the constant vertigo that prompted that visit to the emergency room. But that eventually went away only to have my first migraine attack. I remember being in my parents bedroom, barely able to hold it together. The pain was pulsating, the light hurt, the warmth hurt.
I don’t get auras – though it would be useful; it just goes straight into a migraine. I take my generic imatrex and go lay down in my bedroom with the lights off, the blinds and curtains closed with a blindfold on my eyes. Oh, and the colder the better.
I don’t know. Maybe I need to chug more water. Eat my lunch, maybe?
