I was diagnosed with Chronic Daily Migraines a few years ago following x-ray and MRI scans. I’m sure that anyone who experiences constant pain will tell you that they get used to it. The different ways the pain represents becomes a norm and you just get on with life. Options are none anyway.
Last week I had a migraine that was much higher on the scale. If I am used to a 5/10 then this was an 8. I couldn’t work. All I could do was stay as still as possible on the sofa downstairs and help J when she needed it. The next day was very rough too – want to know how rough the next day can be? Read This – but during that day things changed.
Imagine that as a throbbing headache. And now imagine it as each of those little globes are stabby little knives.
It really hurts.
Triptans don’t stop it. Regular painkillers don’t stop it. And it’s been a .. feature .. since that migraine. That’s a week so far of constant intermittent stabby pain during the day and during the night.
