While today was suppose to be fun, a chance to go shopping with my mom & check out Aldi's (never been there yet), my head had other ideas.
I went to bed last night with one of the worst headaches of my life. It was like I had a migraine (including sensitivity to light & sound, nausea, dizziness) and a strong sinus headache at the same time. I tried Ibuprofen which normally at least reduces the pain, but the headache just got worst. Finally after trying to sleep for a couple hours, I put a hot rice pack over my forehead/sinus area & fell to sleep.
It wasn't much better when I woke up. I did notice getting some fresh air did help, but the bright lights in the stores aggravated the light sensitivity. Plus my 2 yr old wasn't being overly cooperative with shopping. He either wanted to put things in the cart (exactly where he thought they should go) or he wanted to walk at his own pace (and where he wanted). Normally I can ignore his whining while shopping but with the headache, I barely made it through the first store.
Tonight still not rid of my headache, but I have been able to do some baking and spend time with the kids. Hoping a good nights rest gets rid of this...I have plans to visit my 9 mo old god-daughter tomorrow & I really want to be up to playing with her.
