Migraines & Suckiness

Migraines pretty much suck.

As I have one at the moment, this post isn’t going to be extremely long.

However, I know other Migraineurs can fully sympathize…

I hope everyone is feeling well today…

    I’m new here, so just saw your post. Hope you’re greatly over your April 28th migraine and are now pain free for now. Your post made me recall a night when I was driving home after performing right after work for the Navy (“sailors” – in your nic). It was dark and all of a sudden I lost 95% of my vision. I was nearly blind and didn’t know what to do. I couldn’t just stop in traffiic, but I could just detect a teeny bit of red light ahead of me: the lit rear lights of the car in from of me, so kept following that very, very dim red light. About a mile and a half later I started to get worried, because I had to turn right somewhere. How to get my cell and call home? That just couldn’t be done. Then – Wham! My vision totally cleared and I thought – bleeding migraine!!! I had only ever had one aura, so apparently this was one heck of an aura. My vision cleared 1/2 block before I needed to turn right. The migraine gods were with me. And, yes, one hour later the pain spiked. Again, just thought I’d share a very weird experience and want you to know we’re all in this together. If you have a weird one, share it, too.
