2/10/2016 I really love the Theraspec glasses, but I really hated having to wear two pair of glasses. So I contacted Theraspecs and asked if I could return the “over the glasses” theraspecs and get prescription glasses made! So I had to send in my indoor tinted glasses and use the outdoor ones for a little while which were very dark inside, but I only used them when I needed them. At any rate, I finally got my prescription Theraspecs lenses inside my cheap ole frames from Zenni Optical. And I love them! It is so great to just have one pair of glasses to wear during the day and on cloudy days they are good for outside too.
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.
After much deliberation, I decided to get a pair of glasses specifically designed for migraine sufferers. And I got them today 😀. I could have definitely used them over the passed 72 hours during one of the worst migraine I have had. Three days in bed will be fun to recover from.
But I digress. I got glasses for indoor and outdoor. I had to buy the ones for over prescription glasses so they are not cute and a bit bulky but I am hoping it will help with screen time specifically. But also to be in the living room with natural light as well. I look forward to trying both the indoor and outdoor glasses. I am also curious to see if wearing them during my baseline New Daily Persistent Headaches (NDPH) will reduce eye pain.
