Worse week in a long time due to migraines
Tuesday, June 17, 2014
I got a horrible migraine on Sunday evening the 8th of June. Took my prescription meds and it sort of worked after a while. Then Monday afternoon the aura came back like gang busters (I call it the strobe light syndrome, but lots worse). But Tuesday morning I was feeling alright and decided I would try a short walk early in the morning. It was over-cast and cool, around 68 degrees when I started. I was almost home when the aura started up again. I got and took my meds once again but the aura did not go away for over 2 hours and left me hurting everywhere, head, neck, lower back, hips, you name it and it hurt. I really couldn't do much all that week, by Thursday I was able to clean one of the bathrooms and do a fast vacuum.
Friday I had a pro-time due and took care of that. They wanted to take my BP with one of those automatic ones and sometimes they really hurt my arm. Well the nurse tried and I ripped the thing off halfway through cause of the pain. I get more sensitive everywhere after I have one of this super migraines. Pro-time was perfect even with having to take so much other medication.
Took all weekend to get to 100% and my lower back is still bothering me but I am able to get out and walk again. Started slow yesterday and slow today but working on the miles again.
Hope all my friends had a great Fathers Day weekend. Jeff has been working everyday for close to 4 weeks now and has a couple more to go til he has time off. His last day will be the 29th of June out 29th anniversary. Guess we will wait til next day to do something.
Hugs to one and all. xo
