In a previous post I thought that the burst of energy might be a precursor to a migraine, because that seemed to have happened before the previous two migraines. But this time it wasn’t the case. which is good news for me really. I have had three days in a row with functional head pain and lots of energy. In fact I was up until 4:30am last night and awake at 7:30am…no nap!! This is a big deal. I am a bit tired, but my head won’t calm down…I feel like the energizer bunny, hence the Migraine Cave being created in the matter of 3 days.
Things that have changed in the past 3 days:
- The new glasses: Theraspecs Website. I have been wearing them at all times both inside and outside.
- I have stayed well hydrated (which was very helpful when I got a blood draw for allergy testing today).
- I have not spent all day in bed. I have been out and about, visiting with friends, shopping, etc. It has been a good 3 days.
I have also been watching the barometric pressure and feel spikes in my head pain when the pressure changes. But so far it hasn’t gone into a full blown migraine or a debilitating NDPH. There have been moments throughout all three days where the pain spikes for a half an hour or an hour here and there but I can almost always trace it to a drop in Barometric pressure.
A great article that my mom found about how Barometric can scientifically effect or trigger migraines.
My mom also found a great app for my phone that allows me to track 48 hours of Barometric pressure. It is called Pressur but you can do a search for Barometric pressure and it should come up. I paid the $1.98 to upgrade so that I do have the 48hrs. The free one comes with a 12 graph.
