So everyone knows I have chronic headaches with a few migraines sprinkled in there for fun. Sometimes it feels like no one really gets what an impact these have on my day-to-day life. Every day, my choice is to feel miserable and in pain, or take a few Excedrine Migr. and feel miserable and drugged. The pain pills help with the pain, but don’t take the headache away…it’s like my brain’s foggy and woozy. If I take less than a few throughout the day, it does nothing…I still have a headache and have all the drugs in my system, which, over the years, has added up I’m sure.
(I remember being in high school and a normal dosage of Advil was 7 to help a headache. I’ve tried a variety of OTC pain killers over the years and Exc. Migr. is the only one that’s helped for an extended time period…but there’s still some days where 3 is average.)
Anyway, I digress…
I found a great site for migraines out there in blogland for the others in my fam who have this problem. So check it out, too, if you’re interested. It’s absolutely amazing how many people suffer from headaches and migraines!! And I don’t mean those who get one a couple times a year or with PMS. I mean, really, really get them. You’d think there would be a cure by now. There’s things (pills, shots, chiropractors, even botox) that help but no real fix. And different things work for different people, so I know (from experience) that’s frustrating. Btw, seeing a chiropractor did nothing for mine. So the search continues.
