I am starting to feel my blog is whine whine whine, with very little solution. I think my whole world may be whine whine whine, until this migraine just goes away, and I don’t mean for a couple of hours, I want days without migraine.
Yesterday I took maxalt and over the counter meds early, I knew I had to get through a loud day at the school. I went into the school a little later than some of my team mates, but I brought them lunch to thank them for allowing my the flexibility. My migraine was moderate. I sat inside the middle school dance away from the brightness of the full sun day. The loud noises and flashing lights did me no good. Before the dance was over I was vomiting at pretty close to code red migraine.
After I got home the ice pick headaches started up again. There isn’t much information about ice pick headaches but they are intense pain that only last a few seconds. I am used to pain. This is probably the most intense pain I have known, but it doesn’t last very long. The problem is I seem to completely check out during those few seconds. I become nothing but pain. This would be really bad if it happened while driving, so I will be staying off the roads today, until I know they have gone away. I am not sure how many I had yesterday, but it must have been around a dozen. They increased as the night went on. I have had them in the past, but they are very rare, and I don’t think I have more than three in one day, or 5 within 6 months. There is some evidence that they are related to migraines and that there is a relationship between them and uncontrolled migraines. When I think about my migraine being about three weeks long by now that would make sense to me.
The good thing about the ice pick headaches is they only last a few seconds and the bark is worst than the bite, meaning they seem to not be a sign of anything dangerous at all.
Today I am going to go into urgent care and see if I can get an injection to hopefully get rid of this migraine. I am at the point where I need to consider that the migraines are not part of the arthritis but possibly the Remicade may be making them worse.
