T+4 – Day 1 Triptan Free

It’s 9:30 pm and I haven’t taken a triptan yet. My head started to twinge a bit around 5:30pm but I wanted to give the feeling time to move in or move out before I jumped to Frova. Luckily, it moved out! So I can officially say that this is day 1 without a frova since my injection on Tuesday. I have been thinking about it all day and wondering if I was going to get a migraine so it wasn’t a relaxing, carefree day of no migraine but I am not complaining. I’ll take and celebrate the triptan-free day!

Now I will see if this migraine-free status remains throughout the night and if I wake migraine-free. That will be a big hurdle that I have overcome if I do. Not that one night without triptans and without pain means that I have overcome it forever but I will celebrate the small successes.

The new pillow was not easy to fall asleep on… because it is smaller than my normal two pillows, my arms hurt from being in unusual positions. I was also cold because there was no connection between the pillow and the covers so I need to figure that out tonight. My husband said that it reminded him of sleeping in a bowl of rice crispies because of the noise that the pillow makes each time you move your head and it’s true, but it’s not loud and difficult to sleep through. Once I was asleep, I didn’t wake up from the sounds of the buckwheat moving. Tonight I will see if the new pillow helps to avoid a migraine attack during the night.

Even managed to watch a movie – Hotel Mumbai. If you haven’t seen it and you are interested in movies based on real life, I strongly recommend it but it is brutal. I cried through half of it. Maybe that released some pressure inside of me and that flushed out the migraine! It’s hard to accept that humans can be so brutal to each other.

See you tomorrow.
