I have felt off colour the last couple of days, spent yesterday in bed shaking and vomiting with a blinding headache. Today I went back to bed after taking ds to school and slept. I feel sick, my head feelws like its stuck in a vice, my ears feel fuzzy, my sinuses are blocked and my hands feel numb. I thought it was a virus, but I am craving sugar. Sweets, fizzy pop, anything. Which usually signifies a migraine. However, I don't think I could keep it down.
<Whimper> just want to moan. My last migraine lasted 11 days. And this one shows no sign of abating.
Not really, I take various meds for arthritis and fibromyalgia so I need to contact my gp first. I'm hacked off, its dhs first night off in ages and we have been together 14years. I planned a nice meal. That's buggered.
Blame, I am currently in bed with migraine I have had since Monday. I finally dragged myself to GP yesterday. The doctor saw me right off, probably because I vomited copiously in waiting room... He started me on heavy duty pan meds and an antiemetic..I feel somewhat better today. Also a mate here told me about migraleve. It helped get me through that first night. I do hope it releases it's grip in you post haste..
Migraleve is wonderful stuff, I normally have it in the cupboard but haven't been able to get into town to stock up. I did think it was a virus but my cravings and the headache have swayed my fuzziheadedness into the migraine territory.
Ouch! No, I take heavy duty pain meds for my arthritis, and my migraines only occur every few months. I'm worried that its been caused by my new anti-inflamms. If it doesn't go tomorrow I will all my gp and get my bp checked etc
You are very stoic to ride this out. You just described myself..drift off, then jerk awake with a start. I have sleepy meds but can't see combining pain killers and sleep drug. Are you taking in fluids? So easy to become dehydrated with migraine..
