I Jinxed Myself

United States
October 12, 2017 6:25am CST
In my last post I wrote about how my new medication has prevented me from having any migraines in the last week. Apparently I spoke too soon. This morning I have a migraine. Of course. I jinxed myself. Sigh. Hopefully the medication will continue to work and prevent me from having constant headaches. I guess it's too much to expect to be completely cured from them. Well I'm going to go to bed (it's 4:30 a.m. here) and hopefully sleep this off.

I feel better now, but am having some numbness at my right temple (same side I had the migraine earlier,) which is a symptom of the migraines (it's like a migraine aura but without the actual migraine.) I hope it doesn't turn into a full blown migraine again.

@Courtlynn I think that's a big trigger for migraines -- staring at computer screens. I have a lot of writing to do tonight though so I need to work on that. I have my monitor's brightness turned down to the lowest setting, but it's still too bright for my eyes. I am really sensitive to light.

Thank you. I feel better now, but also like it may still come back. It's a weird feeling.

@Srbageldog Migraines and headaches are so painful.

@LadyDuck Yes they really are and the worst part is that you cannot focus on things at hand.

Hope you feel better soon. I know how it is. Luckily in my life I have had only a couple of migranes. But I do remember a doc giving me medication to know the migranes out of my system and I remember spending nights in agony and wanting complete darkness. Wish you relief and virtiual hugs.

Thank you. They are a miserable thing to have to live with. Fortunately this one hasn't gotten too bad yet. But I'd better go sleep it off before I'm in complete agony.

@Srbageldog you probably know better but perhaps this might help some.
Migraines may be less frequent and less severe with these self-care strategies.

My cousin was suffering from migraines. She had a daith piercing which she claims to have stopped her migraines. One of my friends had botox injections and so far she hasn't had a migraine. I am subject to them, but don't get them often. Thankfully!!!! I hope when you rise you are feeling better lady. Big hugs to you.

Thank you. I have actually considered getting a daith piercing. I have read that they are supposed to help. I'm just nervous about getting that part of my ear pierced. Unfortunately my insurance won't cover botox injections. My neurologist said he's tried and tried to get that insurance to authorize it for patients, and they just won't do it. I am glad you don't get them often, but it sucks that you get them at all. They are horrible.

@Srbageldog I am petrified to get any piercings. I have my ear lobes pierced and that is enough.

@ElusiveButterfly I currently have five piercings in my left ear (and two in the right.) It used to be seven but the top piercings (in my cartilage) were always getting sore so I took the earrings out to give them a rest several years ago and they just healed up within a week. That was the second time I had pierced them, and I haven't done it again since then. It feels like there's scar tissue up there now and I don't know if they can be repierced or if it would just be painful or cause more damage.

I do feel better, but am having the aura without the migraine now...so I hope it doesn't turn into a full-blown migraine. I am sorry you also get migraines.

@Srbageldog I had the aura too, that is so scary because you can't see right and it throws your balance off and everything. I'm so sorry. =( I have had them since I was 8 years old. When I was younger I had memory loss with them too and slurred speech.

@LovingMyBabies I have been getting them since I was 2. I don't really remember ever not having migraines. I wonder what causes children to get them so young? Even 8 is very young to have migraines, I would think. I used to get very nauseous and would vomit anytime I had a migraine when I was younger. Now I rarely get sick to my stomach from them, unless they are really bad. I have only had the slurred speech happen once. The right side of my body went numb and my speech became slurred. I was in my mid 20s and on birth control and I thought I was having a stroke or a mini stroke. But, I suppose it was just a very bad migraine. I am sorry you had those symptoms, they are so scary! Sometimes I get blind spots and a couple times I lost most my vision (I guess that was an ocular migraine.) The first time that happened I was terrified. I don't know why I didn't go to the ER! I just waited it out at home and it eventually passed. It is still scary when that happens, but at least now I know what it is.
