I try to limit posting about myself on Rundpinne, as it is a book review blog, however I could use some non-book blogging advise and if it was not for my son, I would not be asking.
Many of you know I suffer from a rare form of migraines; long story short I have not had a day without migraine pain in almost 30 years (wow), I have survived two strokes (so much for living a healthy life-style-seriously I did and do, but my strokes were a cause of the rare genetic migraines I have, so live healthy!), and my pain is tolerable around a 4 to 5 out of 10. This form does not respond to medications, but does give me access to a team of neurologists, which oddly is not comforting.
Some of you probably heard (blah, blah, blah…head pain… blah, blah, blah), which is fine. I find the topic of my head boring as well.
However, my baby is soon to leave the nest and he has a concert tonight, their CD (yes their High School published a music CD) is being released tonight and I must be there.
Here is where the “help” part comes into play. I have less than 6 hours to lower my pain level and I need any and all tips. Usually I roll my eyes (and yes, it does hurt to do that) at well intended advise, but sometimes someone will come up with a tip I have not tried and it will help lessen the pain, which is all I need, for the pain to decrease long enough for me to smile through this concert.
Going against most of what I believe in, I am asking all of you what works for you when you have a migraine or headache. I am opening myself to suggestions only because this concert is very important to my son and I must be there.
