Migraines......

....I have had many. If you suffer from chronic migraines, you KNOW where I am coming from. If you do not, consider yourself fortunate. I've had these for YEARS. I do have a prescription but they still come. What a messed up week, messed up my shipping, pictures, auctions, and put me behind in getting ready for the upcoming show. And of course the blogging...non existant....*sigh*

Tomorrow can only be better.

Hi Maureen,
so sorry, I have had a migraine on 3 different days this week, I can sympathize with you. I didn't get much done. My gramma always swore by drinking hot water when you got a migraine, but i drink real strong hot coffee or strong hot tea and 2 bc powders and it makes it bearable for me most of the time.Hope you get feeling better soon. I would love to go to your show.

Ah Yes Maureen I totally understand. I have found that when I start to get alot of them my neck is out of alinement and I need to go to the chiropractor. It really does help.

As I was growing up my mother suffered with migraines. She would lay in a dark room, sometimes getting sick, often for a week at a time. Luckily I did not inheret that from her. I can understand your absence. Get well Maureen.

I can sympathize with you, as I have suffered migraines for years, so debilitating that I would be bedridden for days and upchucking the entire time. I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and put on medication and soon after my migraines all but disappeared. I might only suffer from 2 or 3 a year now and they aren't anywhere near as bad as they were.
Hope you are feeling better very soon.

So sorry, Sweetheart. Yep, I'm there with you. I get migraines as part of my complex of symptoms from my various autoimmune diseases. They are awful! Hope you can find great relief very soon. Hugs and Blessings, Jodi

Maureen -
I have suffered from migraines for 14 years and would be basically "paralyzed" in bed for days. Many trips to the hospital. Finally was given Imitrex nasal and it works for me most of the time. I feel like I have lost so many days of my life because of them. Take care - keep creating - love your stuff!

OMG, I too get migraines and cluster headaches! February I had to go to the hospital the pain was so severe, I think in Jan. and Feb. I lost 4 weeks of my life in pain. I fully understand where you are coming from. I finally went to see a neurologist who started me on lyrica since I also have fibromyalgia, only been on it for 2 weeks, too soon to tell, I have had many test and I am still waiting for the results on 2 more blood test.
Boy, I wish you the best with this! Oh, I was also given Maxalt to take as soon as I feel one coming on, they really work, but you cannot wait to take the pill, I use the can that dissolve on your tongue, in case I start to vomit the pill is already in my system, makes me feel sleepy for a bit, then that will pass.
Again, good Luck!
