Migraine Please Go Away!

November 26th 2014 16:54
Migraine Hits


Well, I have been hit with a high level migraine. My face, my head, all down my neck and back hurts. It is a throbbing pain. I am doing my best to do what I need to do to keep it lower. But I feel like it is weather related. It's not unusual for weather to trigger a migraine. The weather this year is back and forth, cold, warm, rain, snow.


I cannot take most medicines for allergies or sinus problems. The pain is so tiring. Tomorrow we go to our daughter's for Thanksgiving. I won't be eating much.

I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!

Holiday Triggers

November 24th 2014 21:23


Oh, the start of the holidays! All those triggers out there! Some of them you can avoid, some you can at least limit. Let's look at the list:

Stress: Yes, we love family & friends. Usually mixed with that is stress. This, you need to limit. Whatever that may take. Limit your visit. If you are having people over, you may need to take breaks, be able to go to your bedroom and lay down if you need. If you are staying some place, let them know you may have to excuse yourself.


Food: Foods are another trigger. If you know something you eat may trigger a migraine, don't chance it.

Drinks: Whether it's soda, coffee, alcohol, whatever may be a trigger, avoid it.

Travel: Take your meds with you. Take your comfort items. If you need an eye mask, sunglasses, remember them.

Put yourself first. Yes, we want to make others happy, but how happy will they be if you push yourself during this time.

Meditation May Help Migraineurs

October 27th 2014 16:34


In September 2014 Science Daily did an article on research conducted by Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, migraine relief through meditation. "Stress is a well-known trigger for headaches and research supports the general benefits of mind/body interventions for migraines, but there hasn't been much research to evaluate specific standardized meditation interventions," said Rebecca Erwin Wells, M.D., assistant professor of neurology at Wake Forest Baptist and lead author of the study published in the online edition of the journal Headache

Rain and Migraine

October 14th 2014 16:42


Well, this is the second day of nonstop rain. I think it's going to keep raining until tomorrow. I can't wait because my chronic migraine pain level has gone up because of the rain. Weather changes really do a number on my head. It's hard to just act like it isn't there. I don't want to give into it. I am taking things a little bit easier so I don't make the pain worse
