Living with Migraine

Didn't realize how good I had it the second time around

  • By kstout135

    Hey Everyone,

    During my second cycle last year, when I vomited daily (Nope, not even kidding), I thought those were the worst I could ever experience. I thought “it HAS to get better from here”. No. No. No. And what do you know? No. The past two months have given me migraines that somehow they don’t get better despite all the pills that I now take every single day. I admit, I didn’t manage them well in the past. But I am trying now. Even now, I still need to eat better, (I’m skinny and try to maintain this figure despite using a wheelchair), stay hydrated, and continue to take my meds as directed. Surprisingly, when I had my migraines, which caused me to vomit, that relieved the pressure on my brain caused by my migraines. Well, at least that’s what my mom, the RN says. I wish I could back in time, and tell my 2015 self, “So, you’re vomitting everyday? Pssshhhh. That’s nothing. Be thankful for the nausea. Just wait till what you get next year”. Please, please, please understand that I am only referring to myself here. If you are reading this right now, and you do throw up every day, you have my deepest, sincerest, and most heartfelt sympathies. I have been in the black whole where you are. But if I had a choice for myself and no one else, I would have no reservations whatsoever choosing constant nausea over constant head pain. I did not know how good I had it last year. I can’t breathe I thought things were better.

    Hi kstout135,

    I’m so very sorry things are so rough right now. Have you spoken with your doctor about this? If not, please do and let us know how you are.

    Hi Nancy,

    I hope you are feeling well. Aw thank you so much for your concern! Things have improved a little bit since I got my period last week, but not much. I have an appointment with my neurologist on Monday, the 25th. I’ll show her my migraine log, and tell her just how awful it’s been these past couple months. I’ll keep you posted!

    Thank you so much!
