Recently I have been getting migraines. Like the horrible I am going to vomit at minute-someone knock me unconscious until it goes away-can't get comfortable anywhere-brain pounding kind. I have been getting migraines since high school. I am on a daily med to help me sleep, because that was my main trigger lack of sleep. Well one thing that I can't control is the weather.
I know what you are thinking, "How does weather cause migraines?" Well I have no idea, but for me it does. Indiana weather's bipolar tendencies when the seasons are changing triggers them every time. Or if there is too much rain. It is annoying, and unfortunately there is no way for me to stop them that I have figured out yet.
Today I believe it was a combination of stress and the weather. I felt it starting, but didn't take my meds because I am an idiot. By the time I got home I wanted nothing more than to dig a hole and hide out until it went away, but I have a puppy who doesn't understand these things. Thankfully he took pity on me and let me lay down for a little bit with my ice pack. It cleared up three hours after it started with the help of a pill and an ice pack or two.
What I hate the most is that There is not much more I can do besides those things to get it go away. It's very debilitating.
Then there are those that have never had one that like to give me their two cents....
