I also suffer from migraines but not often. The last one I had was probably a couple of years ago. So you might agree when I tell you how ironic it is that today I had a migraine.
I walked into church with a spot in my vision, thinking I had accidentally looked at the sun or at a reflection of the sun on a car. It was so bright and beautiful today. But after a few minutes it wasn't going away. Then it started moving around and eventually I had no peripheral vision at all in my left eye, just squiggly lines. And if I didn't know better, I would have thought I was going blind. We almost left church before the service even started but I noticed my vision began clearing up. My head didn't hurt even a little. I knew it probably meant I would get a headache (spotty vision is a sure sign of a migraine coming), but I guess I didn't want to believe it so we stayed. By the end of the service I had a full on headache. We needed to go grocery shopping so my sweet man told me he would run in for me so I could stay in the car and close my eyes. You other migraine sufferers know how much the light and sound bother a migraine. Plus, an added nuisance today was my smell. That was a first for me. Anyway, I had to text my hubby to tell him to hurry or only grab a few things because I needed to get home. I was starting to feel sick to my stomach. I had medicine at home but didn't carry it with me since I rarely get migraines.
I got home, after we hit every red light possible, and took my pill. Within 40 minutes I felt better. An hour later I was outside laying by our pool with my husband and daughter. That's good stuff. However, it came back and I just took another pill.
But isn't it ironic that after years of no migraines I would get one right after my mom was here with hers?
Maybe it's a sympathy migraine.
