Last week I had a smoothie which triggered a prodrome. I’m not sure what it was in the smoothie, I’ve tested all of the ingredients, and I found nothing.
Later in the week, I had a bit of a migraine. I had to take my abortive meds before it set in mostly because they affect my sleep and it was starting to get too late for me to take my meds if I want to sleep. I’m at the point where prodrome affect my life more than the migraines themselves. I feel like I’m in a fog. I’m always tired. I feel miserable. I can’t wake up. I’m dizzy. I’m having a hard time doing simple tasks like putting the lid on my water bottle. I’m yawning all of the time. I can’t even concentrate. Hell, I can barely manage to take care of myself because I just feel so shitty off of the time.
I have a history of migraine symptoms without the actual migraine pain. Last year I’d the silent migraines in alternations with my regular migraines (just to shake things up, ya know?) But I just feel so miserable, being in prodrome for just so long without a real migraine, and when I do get them, they’re barely their, just an annoyance. All of these silent migraines are the only reason why I know it’s even a migraine, because I get literally all of the symptoms EXCEPT the pain sometimes.
And I just feel so dead. Like you do when you haven’t slept in a long time. I don’t have the energy to do anything. I don’t feel like doing anything. I’m incredibly dizzy. It’s a huge difference than the usual me that wants to do everything at once and it’s killing me to just not feel like doing anything all of the time.
Anyone else deal with this nonsense?
