In A Fog

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.

Oh gosh, migraine maybe? I don't know if I get true migraines, but I can relate. Often I feel better if I can sleep it off to forget about it. Hope you feel better soon!

Yes, you are right, it was a migraine. I don't get them often, and when I do I surrender really quickly.

@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!

@Juliaacv hope you can shake that foggy feeling. Enjoy your visit with your aunts tomorrow. I'm sure they'll be happy to see you too

@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.

I hate real fog, especially when I have to drive.

@mrki444 We used to live in a tiny little rural village, and the drive into town used to be very scary when it was foggy.

Maybe because of A / C you have a headache, that's what happens to me too, or when I'm hungry oh and when I do not drink coffee. I hope you will feel better soon

Thank you. I have to leave for work in a little while, but only for 4 hours, and then back home again to bed and sleep it away.

@Juliaacv I think you'll enjoy leaving the house. It's good that you do not stay long, only 4 hours

I usually get that fog when my allergies are kicking up. I hope you are feeling better soon.

Thanks, it lasted one full day and the next day I was almost alright, but not perfectly. The only thing that I can do when I get a migraine is to retreat to the bedroom, pull the shades, and lie down until I feel better.

@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 hope you are ok. I enter a fog just about every day. It makes it hard to think. I am fortunate that I do not get the bad headache each time. I am so sorry that you have to deal with it.

I will be alright in the morning, I'm sure it will have passed by then. I get a few of these a year, and all it takes is time to let them pass.

That is normal for someone suffering with fibro fog. do you have fibromyalgia? you need rest and nothing more.

No, I don't have fibro, but a few times a year I will suffer from a migraine. That is why we have black out shades with pretty curtains over top.

@Juliaacv Oh that is another issue I understand very well. I am sorry about that.

A headache is a real bother ! Isn't Tylenol a medicine for a cold ? It has lots of side effects.

Tylenol is a brand name for pain relief and does include arthritis and cold medications. I took the extra strength pain relief.

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.

While going somewhere I don't want fog. I think after taking medicine you will feel quite better.

It wasn't so much the pills that I took, but the time that I allowed my body to get over that. I went to bed for a while a couple of times and that helped.

Thanks Judy. I went into work for 4 hours and that actually helped bring me out of it. I had to force myself to shed that fog feeling, working on a computer will make you do that.

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.

I find that for myself Tylenol (extra strength) works wonders on me. I refuse to take anything stronger. Quite often lying down in a dark room, with a cold compress on my forehead and complete silence for a few hours is as good as the Tylenol.
