I thought I would be better off dead.....

Seriously folks. Ughhh Migraines. I have had a headache for 4 days, and thought it would go away, but woke this a.m. With the King of Migraines, the kind you can't walk, or open eyes, the kind that makes you vomit endlessly. I haven't had one of these bad boys for a long time, and am blaming these estrogen patches they put me on. Hormones have been linked to migraines, and they have been the culprit in my case before. I am done with the things. Thank God for Imitrix, it saved me.

My poor toddlers, spent the day in the house with a very sick Mommy, and I almost allowed for anything today but screaming, and climbing on me. Which the 18 month old did anyway. Exhausting. We watched a lot of television, which is a big deal. They love Blues Clues right now. It is a big hit.

Dear husband came home and took care of children, and took Dash out fishing. They had a good time. Dash came home wet, which is of no surprise to me, I knew it would happen sooner or later. I guess he was walking on a log and fell in. I wish I had video of it. Dash and Daddy are having fun doing "guy things". Dear Husband came home and told me of their adventures, and I got teary. They are certainly trying to make up for lost time. They are also planning on another fishing trip this weekend.

I hope this is the end of the migraine train for me. It was awful for the entire house.

I hope you start feeling better. I've never had a migraine so I have no idea what you are going through, however I've had plenty of people I know describe it to me. I'm thankful I've never had one.

I feel you pain! I have chronic migraines although they are somewhat under control now. Only about 4 a month now, woohoo! ;-)

Glad Imitrex worked, but have you tried Axert? It's the latest generation of Imitrex and lasts up to 24 hours. I was leary of it but tried it twice this week for a lingering one, and it worked both times. Very impressed!

I was interested that you mentioned the Patch. I can't take BCPs because it increases my migraines with the surge of hormones when I take the pill, but my doctor thought the patch might be better as it would be a controlled level dosage.

Take care, and I hope you are coming through the fog soon!

It's hormonal for me. I can't do the pill because of it.

I'd tell your doctor about it and see if he has a suggestion. There may be something else out there that can do what the patch does, but does not create the hormone influx.

You never know...

It's hormonal for me too - been there - done that... way way way too many times to count! Like Bou I couldn't go on the pill (although it caused me other problems than just the headaches). Hope you're finally feeling better!
