Day 33 – Migraine

Posted by Georgina

Bit of a weird day today. I suppose I should have noticed something was up the last few days – I’ve been getting motion sickness/car sickness when I’ve been driving which is just weird. Plus those food cravings and hitting the carbs a couple of days ago.

It started out as a sort of sinussy headache thing, so I took a decongestant and a nurofen and tried to carry on with my day. It wasn’t until I got the dizziness, nausea and extreme noise intolerance that I realised it was a migraine. Not nice. Haven’t had one in over a year, so was a bit of a shock.

I started out feeling very groggy and slow to get going, so hubby kindly made me a piece of toast and a cuppa.

Almost immediately needed another cup of tea. Knew I wasn’t 100% at this point, but had lots to get done.

Wouldn’t normally have a roast dinner on a Saturday, but we’re going out tomorrow to see friends and I’d already ordered the stuff in – the leftovers will at least make an easy tea tomorrow evening when we get back.

Felt really ill by the point I’d made it though, and had fairly small portions of everything and went to bed for a bit shortly after.

Another cup of tea when I got up again as I was cold and shivery, then later on a banana and I now feel much better. Looking forward to an early night though.

No exercise today. I was planning on going out on a gentle bike ride with my eldest son, but it just didn’t happen for obvious reasons.
