Migraine

Thank you for your concern. I have a migraine. It is one of the worst I have ever had. I managed to run 8 miles yesterday, then came home and went to bed. As soon as I fell asleep, the Fraternal Order of Police called to ask for a donation, when I said I had a migraine, the young earnest man said "Oh, this will only take a second." I hung up on him... I haven't hung up on anyone in years. I never went back to sleep. I did go to church last night, I thought it might be soothing in a way to sit in a quiet place with a community of people. It was.

When I came home from church, I layed in bed and prayed not to throw up. I managed to fall asleep without vomiting. I was up in the night and took some more motrin. This morning I didn't wake up until 6:30, disappointed to still have the headache. But I threw on some clothes and went to the 6:30 meeting - late.

Then I went out for coffee with the ladies. One of my beloved sponsees, who is a nurse, told me to get Exedrin Migraine... so I did. Now I hope it works.

A couple of people, including one of my favorite bloggers, have suggested that I am getting the flu - I don't know what is going on. I just know that this headache is one of the worst I have ever had, and I am sicker than usual from it. So, who knows?

Sorry to be so self-centered today. It is hard to see outside of yourself when your head feels like a painful prison.

Bless you. Good luck with whatever it takes to make you feel better (except anything you shouldn't be taking, of course).

I can so relate to migraines. I rarely have them anymore but the only thing that worked for me was medication, sleep and a dark room, oh, and quiet. I feel for you and I know your pain. I hope you feel better soon.

Headaches are so mysterious. I don't have any suggestions other than if it doesn't go away then some medical attention is in order.

Hey, you know what? If you're feeling sick, take the time to get better. I don't think anyone will blame you for being self centered today. :)

I'll keep you in my prayers. I hope you feel better soon.

It it is a migraine, caffeine should be avoided. I used to get them and quit all caffeine. Hope that you'll feel better.

Hi Mary Christine from another friend of Bill's who also gets migraines - you should know that Exedrin Migraine is just extra strength exedrin - doesn't contain anything migraine specific. There are prescription meds that specifically abort the migraine process, and they're not narcotics. A headache specialist can work with you to find appropriate meds. A good place to learn about the meds and get a list of specialists is on www.mymigraineconnection.com. Blessings and good luck!
