As I may well have mentioned before, I am prone to these particularly nasty headaches, but generally I get one or two a month, generally close together. Recently, though, that frequency has greatly increased, and I’m getting rather fed up with them!
I read a theory in a book that sufferers have a tolerance level.. for example, missing a meal may not generally be a trigger, but if you are stressed, then you miss a meal, it pushes you beyond your tolerance level, and you get a migraine.
The book probably made more sense than I am!
Anyway, that theory certainly seems to making sense right now. There are a lot of things going on at work, plus it’s been generally rather busy. I’m feeling tired, and stressed. It therefore doesn’t seem to take much to set off a migraine.
This morning was rather rushed (the girls were going to have their school photos today, so Beth had to have a hair wash), and I didn’t get breakfast. I then went to the hairdressers.. and sitting with cold hair for a while always means I leave feeling rather cold, and hence tense. All of this seems to have combined to give me yet another migraine.
It started as a general headache, so I took normal painkillers. Then it progressed, so I took my triptan. That combination always seems to make me feel rather unwell, which doesn’t help. The headache did go.. but I can feel it creeping back a bit. :o(
Oh well.. moan over, thanks for ‘listening’! ;0)
