My feeling of being human was short lived and by 9pm last night, I was reaching for the ibuprofen and tylenol. This is a concoction that a doctor once told me to try so I decided to give it a shot.
The night was awful. It was one of those nights when I feel like I haven’t fallen asleep even though I must have at some point. But between 3 and 5:15, I was wide awake. I managed to doze 30 minutes before my alarm went off for work.
It almost felt as if I was waking up to see if my migraine was getting worse or better. Each time I moved, I would try to feel how I was feeling. When I got up, my head hurt like yesterday with pain under my eyes and above my eyes. I thought I would be better after a shower but no.
I had to take a frova.
Getting rid of the migraine was more important than braving it and being able to say that I was triptan free for the day. Work beckoned and I needed to answer.
I felt groggy and foggy for most of the morning but the migraine did go and while the pain threatened to return a couple of times, it did just gently ease away. Now, at 8:30pm, I am feeling a twinge of pain behind my right eye again but I am hoping that it will fade away on its own.
I do so hope that the CGRP works.
See you tomorrow.
