What Do You Think?
Yesterday I knew fairly early on in the day that a migraine was inevitable but, as always, I needed to determine if I was going to treat this one or call my body's bluff and try to make it through the day with just Tylenol (which might as well be a M&M for all the good it does). I decided to call my bluff and not treat it. Unfortunately, I made the wrong decision as yesterday's migraine turned out to be super bad. It was somewhere around 4pm when I finally broke down and took my triptan but of course by then I was all kinds of nauseous and in more pain than even the triptan could get on top of.
After about 3 hours the worst of the pain has gone down. As expected the triptan wasn't enough but at least the pain was tolerable and bedtime was only a few hours away so I decided to see what a good night's sleep could do for the migraine. Waking up with the same pain that I went to bed with was pretty disappointing. With the whole day ahead of me I was fearful that today would take the same path as yesterday so I decided to go ahead and take another triptan.
