ARE THE WORST! As of this morning, I have had four migraines in my life; I remember each of them vividly. I don't have any clue how those people who get them regularly cope with life. I was out of commission till 3:00 this afternoon and I'm still shaky and out of it.
I get so sensitive to light and sound, then my left eye starts feeling irritated - kind of like that itchy, throbbing pain when you get jabbed in the eye, or when you've slept with a ton of mascara on. And then I start seeing these wavy lines. And then I call an emergency family meeting and get as much done as I can before the pain hits. Then I try to sleep.
Thank goodness today wasn't nearly as bad as the last one I had back in May - I fell asleep before the pain was bad and was able to sleep through the worst of it. Steven and Gage were wonderful; Gage graciously gave up his bedroom since it's the darkest room in the apartment and Steven kept him entertained (so amazingly quietly) in the living room so that I didn't get woken up.
I feel so bad for people that get them regularly, or for long periods of time! Do you get migraines? How often? How do you treat them? I want to know what (other than sleep) helps to control them/stop them. Details, please!
