I'm in another prolonged migraine event.
I've avoided it long enough and am now willing to try a medication that my doc recommended back in January (it can cause liver problems). This is a daily medication, not one to take just at the onset of symptoms.
I think a recent weight gain and my lack of ability to participate in many recent social events has helped with the decision.
I can't exercise with any frequency or intensity when my head and face are constantly pounding. Staying home all the time depresses me, which makes everything worse (including my food and drink choices).
So, enough of the negativity. I'll track my migraines while on the meds & my energy & mood.
I deserve a happy, healthy life migraine-free and at goal weight! Perhaps this will be another tool to help me get there.
