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

    How very horrible to suffer like that with migraines! Never knew they could affect your whole body :( Hope you are done with them for a long time to come!!
    So sorry Jeff has to work on your anniversary.
    I hate those auto BP cuffs too. I once had to have one on my leg because one arm was full of needles and the other in a cast, and boy did that hurt!!
    Hope you have a much nicer week!

    Sorry to hear that your migraines have been so bad! It is sad that so many people have to suffer with those. I agree with Jamer, don't do too much for a while, that may trigger the problems. Glad you are some better.

    Jeff works hard, long hours. Too bad he will be working on your Anniversary, but like you say, you can maybe do something the next day. Congratulations on your 29 years married! emoticon emoticon

    Sorry you have had such a rough time with your migraines. I have only had one or two in my life time and that was one or two too many. Sending you healing hugs and prayers for No More Migraines.

    Sounds like you really have had a bad week! I sure hope the migraine is done torturing you for a long time. I remember those that I had and all the meds. it took to be rid of them but nothing like you described. I would be down 24-48 hrs. Yet I remember being sensitive all over too. Take care and don't push too hard. Jeff is really working hard too. Not too much help for you when you aren't feeling well. Keep in touch and keep us updated on your progress. Will be thinking about you!
