Good Resource Before Your Next Appt   2 comments

Does this image look familiar?

It does for me. . . minus the full makeup, the smile, the perfect hair, and the spandex clothes.

I don’t even like to use the word headache anymore because I have dealt with my own migraine enough to understand that they are a whole-body dis-ease.

Today, I woke up at 4 am.  I kept hitting my tooth that has a temporary crown on it.  I slept off and on from 4 am to 7 am.  I don’t think i had dreams, but I had a lot of “fretting” and it was not pleasant.

Before work, I scrambled some eggs and they sounded really unappetizing.  All I wanted was plain toast.

I got to work at 8:30 and went right in to a meeting with a smoker . . .

By lunch time, I was nauseated and a bit dizzy.

Back to work, with an ice pack for good measure.

Only to find that there was a huge machine tearing up the driveway in front of my office.  The noise was crazy and I could hardly concentrate.

Ugh.  Calgon could not take me away.  I had a report to write.

It does seem that I took my meds quick enough to stop the headache before it got worse and I could make it through the hot, humid, noisy afternoon.

But I came across this:

I was happy and it was good timing.  I go to a new headache clinic/neurologist tomorrow and this will help me prepare.

Soon I will post about the tracking method I now have and whether or not it helps going to the doctor or not.

Anyway, I hope this document helps you too!

Namaste, Jennifer
