In A Fog
July 9, 2019 12:00pm CST
Early this morning I woke feeling my usual self. Before too long that changed. I began with a bad headache. I closed all of the windows and turned the a/c on. I only had one Tylenol left in the bottle, so I walked over the nearby pharmacy to get another bottle. Once I had a couple of those in me, I went to back to bed with a cold compress on my forehead. A couple of hours later I woke. I ate something and then felt warm again. I turned the a/c off. I am going to take a couple more Tylenol tablets and lie back down again. I feel like I am in a fog today and I need to rest it out of me.

@Juliaacv I ended up with a headache by the end of the day yesterday. I thought I could sleep it off, but when I woke up in the middle of the night, it was still there. This morning I am much better - a bit of coffee seemed to have helped!
@Marilynda1225 I feel so much better after going into work. It was only for 4 hours but it got me dressed up and out the door, so that was beneficial. I am looking forward to seeing my 2 old aunts tomorrow. They are both nuns, so I will have to mind my p's and q's.

@Juliaacv Ah, I didn't know it was a migraine, mine doesn't give me a fog they just knock me for a loop. If I get an aura and can take 800mg of ibuprofen before it starts I can often nip it in the bud these days but I have had migraines since I was 4 years old, I remember as a child throwing up a lot with my headaches.
@BelleStarr I used to have horrendous headaches when I was a child before they removed my brain tumor. My migraines are nothing like those, and actually now that I have gone thru the change I have less migraines then I did even a few years ago.
I have to shut the world off when I get like this. I need complete silence, total darkness, a cold compress and time. I took that this morning, and then got up for a bit and then gave in again and shut everything down for another hour or so and now I'm up again.

I think this migraine is caused by unstable pressure ,the street is terrible unstable weather ,all this has a detrimental effect on everyone and even on animals what can we say about people,I think you need to rest more often and avoid the sun.
Thank you. As soon as I felt that stabbing pain in the back of my head shooting right to the front of my head I got some Tylenols into me, lowered the shades on the bedroom window, cranked on the a/c, put a cold compress on my forehead and got under the blankets for a few hours. I had to do that twice today, but it is finally gone. I don't envy you with COPD, that is a terrible illness.
