Today was the worst!!
I woke up with a horrible headache that soon turned into a very bad migraine.
I went to work.
Took all kinds of meds, including my migraine meds and nothing worked.
I work as a nurse in the OR.
So during a hernia operation, I was sent running to the bathroom and depositing breakfast in the toilet. (Not fun)
Took some anti-nausea meds and went to sleep.
Woke up without the headache and I now I just feel out of it.
Caffeine (have it by the truck loads)
Aspartame (Diet Coke wouldn't be Diet Coke without it)
Chocolate (Isn't that one of the food groups?)
Aged cheese (aren't they all aged?)
Stress (ok, come on)
Sleep disturbances (I have 4 kids, are you kidding me!)
Hormones (I am a woman)
Nitrites (what all good lunchmeats and hot dogs have)
Bright lights (did you catch where I spend most of my day?)
Ok, so today I have swore off the Diet Coke ( I have like a gazillion a day)! But I need something else to help me. My insurance company doesn't want to cover my wonderful migraine medicine, so I am looking for something natural, homeopathinc or the like.
Anybody deal with these? Got any good suggestions? Treatments that worked for you??
Help a sister out, cuz this is not fun :(
