Migraine Shmigraine

Yes, the picture above accurately depicts me and trust me I know I know there is only so much you can take of me griping about my migraines but too bad I ...ha
Well like yesterday today I have the same migraine (a single migraine can last as long as a week) last night I was so nauseous I had to bust out the big daddy of meds which luckily knocked me out for the night....but today I am not better let me describe to you what I feel.....
I feel as if someone scalped me poured hot coals all over my head and then used a staple gun to put my scalp back on....lovely isn't it? I had a appt with my neurologist this morning and we have decided the next course of action is to double the dosage of my preventative meds and this month I am going to get back into a routine of exercise. Doctors orders are 2 days of cardio and 1 day of yoga or Pilate's over the next 5 weeks. We are hoping the combination of things as well as my strict sleep routine will help. Just so you know my migraines will NEVER be cured but we are working to try to limit the number I have. I am also required to keep a journal and in October out of 31 days I had a severe migraine 17 days...NOT GOOD!
Yes, somedays i want to cry in bed all day but I am out of sick days! BOO!!

Poor Nicole! I know how you feel. My doctor told me with pregnancy migraines typically go away or you get them more frequently. Mine haven't gone away but they don't seem to be happening more....which I am thankful since I can only take tylenol. Yesterday was a brutal day and today doesn't seem much better. Take care of yourself!!!!!
