i believe this is day 4 of my severe migraine - and i'll still have it tomorrow. this has been really tough.

i was finally able to eat a tiny bit, and at least some of m body can experience comfort while i'm in bed. i am confined to bed. but yesterday i was vomitting and such. i feel sorry for my dog having to miss out on playing. but he is really understanding since he sensed my illness when he first met me.

i can't keep too many thoughts in my head so i'm signing off now - i hope you all are well.

PS - will speak about migraines more in crisis_911 prolly so go add that if it concerns you.

Can't anyone do anything for your headache? (I've never had a migrane, I don't know about such things)

Late Thursday Night: Thanks so much - my Migraine is almost all gone now, and I am hoping to get a lot done tomorrow.

Thanks for checking in. I hope you had a nice day.

I know many people w/ migraines, including some of my best LJ friends - and all of them are stuck with them. I've tried a few prescription things, but nothing helps - although I might try to do Imtrex again, or pot, ha ha. Migraines seem to come along with other chronic illnesses. My CFS, which apparently involves a retro-virus, currently has no cure or helpful treatment. It all really sucks because I love to THINK, but usually can't.

I'm glad you finally had a good day the other night, and I hope things don't get too difficult for you these days.

The nice thing is that, after i come out of a relapse, if i don't drink a lot, i THINK a lot. So much FUN just to be able to think again!

It's been a while since we've been in touch. I'll stop by your journal some time soon and maybe have coffee.

:D

One of my co-workers has a daughter who suffers from frequent, severe migraines. They took her to a doctor, and the doctor prescribed morphine for pain management. This didn't work out though; the morphine effectively dulled the pain, but it also spaced her out so badly that she couldn't study or do school work, and she was still basically in the same boat as she had been with the untreated migraines.

They took her to a different doctor who suggested that she might try medical marijuana. In her case, the medical marijuana worked like a charm; her migraines were more manageable, yet she was still lucid enough to attend college classes and study.

Of course, your case may differ, and if you live in a state that doesn't allow the medicinal use of marijuana, then that adds another dimension to the problem.

Good luck though; my sister-in-law has relatively mild migraines, and she claims that a drive to the beach always makes her feel better; her theory is that the sea air somehow helps her through the migraine.

I would try morphine (or opium) once I finally set up a relationship with an new family doctor. But I don't think it would be a great thing - maybe it's the best, i dunno. I was on an anti-depressant and that was nonsense because CFS "depression", and migraines, are completely dif to conventional depression. I happened to be thinking of pot a few times in past days - thinking it may help - it's not legal here. I've used it in the past for fun - but a few times there was the paranoia thing. I don't know if it would mix with my present uncertain situation plus my CFS - but i am pot-curious.

Your sister is RIGHT! She is experiencing the negative ions coming in from the ocean! They are definitely therapeutic mentally - (though definitely limitted for big-time migraines). They are a big reason why i'd like to live near an ocean and/or up in the mountains!
