While every migraineur experiences vastly different symptoms, they unquestionably can take on a life of their own and develop characteristics much like an animate being. Inspired by the original article, “What Animal is Your Migraine”, by Lisa Benson and all of YOU, our Migraine.com Community Members, I’ve compiled some of your VERY thought provoking, creative and wildly amusing (as being able to very clearly visualize) comments in response to this topic.
Get ready to begin our journey to visit with these unpredictable creatures and hold onto your hats! You never know what is going to be lurking around the corner. Just when you think you know your triggers, symptoms and how best to manage them, these erratic beings and elements reveal themselves!
First, let us begin a visit with 2 Woodpeckers right behind your eyes!
Next up, the pest that can never be eradicated, the Cockroach!
Ugh oh, it’s getting very dark and gloomy! Take cover, it’s a Tornado, no wait it’s a hurricane!
Shhhhhhhhh! Be very quiet. We don’t want to wake the Brown Bear from Hibernation and have it rake its claws across your forehead, arm and neck!
They don’t just laugh, no Hyenas always lurke and wait for the kill!
Batter up! Baseball season is around the corner. Well, how about that Baseball Player who follows you around to periodically whack you on the back of the head with his bat?
Last by not least, just when you thought they didn’t exist and were only in the movies, The Lionbear appears! It is a combination of a lion and a bear with the ferociousness and brute strength to bring you down, even though you fight it with the same. Yet, it can still be gentle and sweet when it’s when it’s not angered.
Now, how about you? We would LOVE to know which of these untamed beasts or any other description that best describes your migraine. Please be sure to share in the comments below.
