Ooooh… my aching head

I dunno what is going on with these migraine headaches. I swear that I’m having them every day. Maybe it’s the heat, maybe it’s the stress. I wish I could pinpoint exactly why I’m having them so frequently. My doc gave me a prescription for Zolmitriptan earlier this month, but so far that isn’t helping. The Imitrex nasal spray that I’ve been using the past few years only works if I use it when I feel the aura of the migraine coming. I still have a few caplets of Excedrin left, but I think my body is becoming immune to it since I’ve been taking it for years as relief. So for now, I’m experimenting with different remedies again. I’m careful to avoid eating foods (primarily cheese and chocolate) that trigger my migraines, but I haven’t been eating anything with those things in them at all. I usually get more headaches in the summertime just cuz of the heat, but everyday!!!!??? This is getting out of hand. While in Jamaica this guy recommended that I cut a lime in half and put them on each temple, but I’ve yet to try that one yet. I’ve got some of this Noni juice in the fridge, but I don’t think that’s the solution. Hell, maybe the solution is for me to just drink more water and relax… or at least try to relax. So many things are going on right now that I can’t seem to breathe. If it aint one thing, it’s another.

I’m doing my best to pace myself, but between work and homelife, I’m burned out. Imagine if I hadn’t gone to Jamaica for a few days earlier this month, I might be a basket case right about now. I need a break. Not necessarily a vacation, but a break. The migraines are making me nauseated and dizzy and I can’t function. The only solution that works 100% of the time, is to take my feet and place them in ice cold water. I suppose that draws the tension from my head to my feet. Hell I’m no doctor, but I know that it works. Hmmm… maybe I should invest in a portable bucket, invent some non-melting ice and carry a gallon of water with me… then I’d have relief wherever I go.

  1. hey i read that if you squeeze the area between your index finger and thumb it will relieve the severity of a headache… dont know how true that is but…hey worth a try, aye?!?!?

  2. You should pass a scanner or a irm on your head just for caution. One every 5 or 10 years can’t heart even if it’s expensive. Don’t play with your health. Show up more in the gym too on regular basis 😉
