Apparently it is Migraine Awareness Week. Mine – I have Chronic Daily Migraines – have been under control for some time. I’m not pain-free but it’s at a level I have become used to and unless I get pain + nausea at the same time I can function normally.
They are back though for reasons I know not. I lost all of last weekend to 2 days of solid pain, nausea, dizziness. No meds helped (by that I mean Zolmitriptan + Tramadol + Paracetamol + Ibuprofen) so I just had to wait until it passed.
Then one day last week I felt it coming on, the triptan didn’t work (I must have mis-timed it) so I spent an afternoon lying very very still.
And then this weekend the pain and nausea are back. Was okay yesterday from about 4pm but woke in the early hours this morning with an epic pain, worst in quite some time. No meds have helped. It’s lessened enough now to a manageable level though blurred vision and nausea aren’t so great.
Nothing in the diet has changed, sleep pattern has been good, fluids are normal, amount of exercise is normal. Could be a stress but there’s nothing new there either. Odd. And very painful.
