I have been fighting with a migraine for the past few weeks, taking excedrin migraine every day. I think I topped out at 10 and still continued to have a migraine. It progressively got worse each day. Only at night was it tolerable when I was able to sleep it off, but last night, I was given no such gift. I counted down the hours until my doctor’s office opened, to see what they could do to help.

When I got in around 10am, I was given an injection of Toradol and waited around for another 15-20 minutes to make sure it 1. worked and 2. I didn’t have any adverse side effects. 20 minutes came and went with little to no relief from the injection. I was then informed that it was likely due to my low body fat, in that it just didn’t absorb enough. The only other option was oral medication by prescription for the same drug that was injected.

I found myself stuck between a rock and a hard place given that I have absorption issues with my stomach too. I’ve taken one dose of the prescription migraine medicine and I’m still deciding on whether it is working or not. It could have gone away on its own just as well. Time will tell and while I wait, I hope that a completely sleepless night will keep me tired enough to sleep through tonight. I have things I want to do tomorrow and I’ll need the energy!

I have found that with a rise in temperature, my symptoms increase accordingly (nausea, migraines, stomach aches, etc.). I have had issues trying to feed without feeling absolutely miserable and sick. I hide away in the darkest parts of my house in hopes of escaping the heat pounding on the walls of my home. We’ve even gone out to the movies just to be in a place with AC. It helps a little but the only thing that keeps me going is the thought of it cooling down, as forecasted. I can’t wait for it to be nice outside and to have the opportunity to properly feed.
