If men were affected by these bleepin headaches that knocked you to your knees as often as women were, there would be a cure already. Just saying.
Headaches that make your vision blurry, the world spin, your stomach lurch, and make you want to cry. They must be the work of the devil.
I know I am not the only Mama suffering so thought I would share this. Every trick I know:
–Nail that headache with Liquid Advil (or your drug of choice) as soon as you feel that familiar twinge of pain.
-Take your migraine meds right away, don’t be a hero.
-Drink a ton of water. Drown that nasty beast.
-Try caffeine, sugar, a quiet dark room if you can get one.
-A hot shower or a cold ice pack might help.
-If you have to go out, embrace your inner movie star and wear those dark sunglasses. Shades help.
-Remember, this too shall pass.
After it does..it might try and come back. Migraines are very tricky beasts. You stop the drugs and end up with the lovely “rebound” headache. Keep drinking the water. Also:
-Avoid aspartame, mushrooms, all the fun cheeses that you love, say no to wine…all booze really. Remember MSG is not your friend so no deli meat, hot dogs or prepared food.
This past week, frankly, it sucked. Thank goodness I have a good man who sent me to my room and made me lie down. Rubbed my back and told me I was going to be okay. ( I did wonder for a while) You can’t be a good Mama or partner while trying not to cry from pain.
Note to self, probably shouldn’t write a blog post while heavily medicated. This is not funny nor entertaining. Hope my tips help someone…PLEASE add you own!
Wishing you all a healthy happy week.
