I got a whoppper of a migraine today… Only my second one and the first was about 8 years ago. It’s hard to describe really but the pain was an intense throbbing on the right side of my head near by temple accompanied by a pounding behind my right eye. I first noticed something was going wrong when my vision became pretty blurry just prior to the pain and I was literally unable to focus or read. Pretty disconcerting considering I don’t wear glasses and generally have good vision. As I became incredibly sensitive to light (sun and light bulbs) I realized what was going and with some help from Ashley was able to lie down for a bit.
I managed to get out briefly and even eat something which was good, both for the air and to just get out. I found Excendrine Migraine at the drugstore, which I took with lunch followed by an hour-long nap. I definitely felt better when I woke up but far from great. I don’t really feel perfect now either… I still have a pretty dull headache which some Advil is working on now that we’ve had some dinner.
Needless to say it’s been a rough day.
