OW!!!!

Well, I'm on day six of a headache. I have a few hours here an there where it has been tolerable, and I am in one of those windows now. My eyesight is affected by the migraines so I cannot stand more than about 10 minutes at a time on the computer.
I am desperately behind on blogs and posting and everything else. As soon as I feel better I hope to get caught up.

Ohhh you poor thing... Headaches are horrible and quite coincidently just like you I am having them too, and each day I need to pop at least one pill. But I think mine isn’t as bad as yours but it just visits me once every day!

Get well soon… or better go show it to the doc, it could be something else.

valerie

Sorry to hear you have a migraine. Those are the worst!

As a fellow migraine sufferer, I truly understand how you're feeling. Have you tried cold compresses over your eyes with a little lavender? They seem to help me. Foot baths and massages also help me. I hope you're feeling better soon.

Hope you will soon be feeling better. 6 days seems an awfully long time to have a migraine maybe a visit to a doctor or perhaps a change of tablets would help. When I have a really bad head and the tablets don't work I change the tablets for a different type, sometimes it works, but I agree with Sapna and Valerie you should have it checked out.

Sherry, as someone who suffers from migraines on a daily basis I feel your pain. All I can say is enjoy the moments when it is not so bad.

Akkk, I am so sorry!

I get migraines too.

I find taking a long shower as hot as I can stand helps. My DD actually lies down in the tub under the spigot of hot water, just be careful getting up that you don't hit the spigot!

I cover my face with my hands since I don't think my complexion needs parboiling!

Sherry, I too have suffered from migraines for nearly 30 years, so I have great empathy :/

I started out with "migraine with aura" then over the summer my neurologist added "migraint variant" to the list! LOL I'm one of those that had refused to use those risky drugs like Imitrex so he put me on Nortriptilin which only recently started being prescribed for migraine. This medication has STOPPED my daily migraines!! I know this is probably WAY too much personal info LOL, but this has worked like a miracle drug for me and now I tell everyone I know with migraine about it :)

I hope you get to feeling better soon!

I'm so sorry that headache won't let go. Diane is right, cold compresses and lavender really do work. I have a lavender filled satin bag in my freezer for just this very thing. I hope you feel much better very soon!
