Hurts Sooo Bad
Last updated: March 2016
Stabbing pain in one specific area, sensitive to light, twinkling, blinding aura, which eventually causes blindness until the lights move across my vision, from one side of my peripheral vision to the opposite side of my vision. Extreme pain for approximately 4 hours, then terrible fatigue. I'm lucky that I only have 3 to 4 bangers per month and do get some relief from 2 amerge. I also have SLE, fibromylagia, hypertension, hypothyroidism, severe obstructive sleep apnea, chronic depression with anxiety, and ADD. Triggers...STRESS. I work full time, and raised 3 sons alone, 1 with DS, who passed from leukemia 3 years ago. My ex, their biological father left after 20 years of marriage to pursue a fast lifestyle in Los Angeles. He was a farm boy from Iowa, who started a company that became very successful. He took the money, and left his sons. STRESS. NOTHING BUT STRESS AND KEEP MOVING FOR THE GREAT LOVES OF MY LIFE. I love my life, but STRESS does not agree with me, for SOOO many reasons.
Do you have a migraine toolbox for when an attack hits?
