I don’t know if it’s the weather this week or just me but I’ve been headachey or worse – had a migraine most of the week.
I’ve had a headache pretty much since I got up this morning but I think it’s turning into a migraine now. My right eye is tender – kind of like someone punched me in the eye a few days ago – or what I think it would feel like since I’ve never actually been punched in the eye. My eye has hurt on and off a few times this year – even without a headache or migraine. I’m pretty sure it’s migraine related even if there is no head pain accompanying it since I’m a migraine sufferer.
Maybe it’s time for me to try some Migraine Botox. I used to work in a pain clinic (as a nurse) where we’d give people Botox injections in their face (eyebrows and temples and back of the head) to help with migraines. Perhaps that’s what I need now. I know it helped several of our patients.
I think for now I’m going to just take my migraine medication and lie down with a heating pad at the back of my neck. If that doesn’t work I’ll switch to an icepack for my head. My neurologist said one of the best things for a migraine was a warm body and cold head as in bundle up in a blanket and put a cold pack on your head … so we’ll see which works best for me.
