Out of the blue

I wake everyday with some form of headache. Most days it's like when you slam your head on the underside of a cabinet, not that sharp pain you get at first but that painful ache you get about 5 minutes after. Now today I wake with a very mild headache. Like a 1 or a 2 on the pain scale. It's a beautiful day no rain in sight after two days of rain. I steer clear of my known triggers, alcohol, msg, high pitch noise, and loud noise or music. I think I everything will be great. I run to the store and just before I get there my headache does a sharp uptick in pain to the point that I'm taking my Zomig as soon as I walk outside. I get home and just want to lay down with a pillow over my head and push the world away.
