Sorry Readers… not much of a post today. I was hit with a migraine last night (when I typically write my posts for the next day or days). I’ve been very lucky that I don’t get them often and not nearly as severe as many people I know, but they still don’t feel good at all.
I had just left the office and somewhere between getting in the car and making my first errand stop 15 minutes later it began, a subtle change in vision, where I had almost no peripheral vision on the right side, and a long kaleidoscope-like line in the upper right of my field of vision, that sparkled and flashed. My head didn’t really hurt though. I finished my errand and then it was off to pick up DH before our next errand (oil change and tire rotation).
The headache began halfway into our short, five-minute drive to the service station, a mild, dull throb and then it was bad enough that I couldn’t read my book. It took me nearly 15 minutes to try to get through two pages, so I switched over to playing mahjong, which was much easier since I only had to look for same tiles.
I’m on hour 4 of this headache as I write this, but I can’t complain too much; it’ll be over soon enough and I’m not hiding from light or sound. Here’s hoping tomorrow I’ll be able to write a proper post!
Do you suffer from migraine headaches? What do you do to alleviate them?
