Hi thanks for asking :).
I’ve been bad, very bad. Was introduced to a lady who has now moved in with my wife and I. Her name is Miss Migraine and she’s a real bitch.
In a 2 week span, I had 6 ER visits, 2 to my PCP, 1 to my ENT, and 1 to a neurologist headache specialist with whom I was lucky to get an appointment.
Dude is trying to treat but we’re in first stages…have tried DHE (dihydroergotamine) injections - no luck, and am currently using Imitrex SubQ - works, frickin finally SOMETHING! For 15 days I had a migraine that I’d rate at a level 8 or higher on the 1-10 scale, more waking hours than not.
This shit had shut me down in most areas of life, including the gym.
Ya know, in the past I’d hear someone talk about having a migraine and would think, “You got a bad headache, bug deal.”
Well, bad headache doesn’t approach this shit. “Extreme Pain” is more frickin like it.
Seriously, I’ve had periods during which I’d literally equate the headache to the pain level in my hand just days after a 4th Frickin Degree burn.
It’s fuckininsane dude I swear.
Oh, and due to a death in my SIL’s family, I was sans my Missus for 3.5 days during this mess and THAT just totally sucked, cause well, if she’s not around I don’t know what to do without her orders lol. Naw, j/k there, but I am heavily reliant on her in many ways and it sucks when she’s out of arm’s reach.
Soooo, that’ll teach ya to ask me how I’ve been right?! Wish I had a more pleasant answer but this gave me an “in” to post about something I’d not have posted otherwise, so thanks for the opp to vent here
Aight then, ya all take care now !
