Migraines, anyone?

Posted Oct 25 2012 10:27am

Migraine #1

So today (yesterday, by the time you’re reading this) I had a weird medical experience. (I’ve been having a lot of weird medical experiences lately, come to think about it!) I have diagnosed myself with a migraine, but since I’ve never had one before, I’m looking to you, interwebs, for confirmation of this.

I woke up in the morning feeling nauseated and sick to my stomach… just not right. I slept in for a while but had to go to work for a few meetings. Everything hurt – my skin was sensitive to the touch, and walking seemed like an insurmountable chore. I don’t remember having a headache at that point, though. I went to one meeting, slept in my car during my lunch hour, and then went back for three solid hours of meetings, during which is was almost impossible to sit still. I was so uncomfortable! I did not get the friendly co-worker of the day award. After that, I went to get Sam and drove home, although I had a hard time deciding which sounded worse – driving home, or waiting another 50 minutes for Andy to come pick me up. Anyway, when I got home, I turned on a TV show for Sam and went straight to bed. Andy and Kate got home 10 minutes after we did, and I didn’t wake up at all. I didn’t wake up for another two hours, actually, but when I did, I had the worst headache I have ever had in my life. Andy and the kids had gone to Subway, and I couldn’t bring myself to get up out of bed to take medicine, even! Not long after that, Andy stopped at home and brought me Advil (I insisted on taking 4 against his recommendation!) and took the kids to the park. I went back to sleep, and by the time they got home, the medicine had kicked in and I felt so much better. I feel like a new person now.

After some googling, I have determined it was a migraine. Do you concur, Dr. Readers?
