I've had two migraines in the past couple of weeks. While I know that is nothing in comparison to some people that I know that suffer from chronic migraines... it's a lot for me.
Normally headaches for me come from one of a couple of known causes: sunstroke (which is my own damn fault), jet lag (which I deal with because travelling around the world seeing new things is totally worth a day of headaches when I return) and muscle/joint misalignment (I see a chiropractor and massage therapist because I'm prone to a bad back which throws out ).
In the past I always associated the headache I got with an upset stomach was a result of the stomach issues... but in the last couple of week, and with the help of my chiropractor, have realized that the barfing and dry heaving is actually a result of the headache... and those together make it a migraine.
Which really sucks. I'm not sure why I'm getting them, and there doesn't seem to be an over-the-counter drug that will even put a dent on the pain. I'm tired of laying on the bathroom floor in the dark waiting for the next wave of barfing to happen... even when I think I have nothing left in me to barf.
I really don't want to go to the doctor for a headache. I don't want to become one of *those* people... you know... the hypochondriacs of the world? Hang nail? Doctor! Chapped lips? Doctor!
Nope... don't want to become one of them. But I'm still not sure what to do.
Except continue to lay on the bathroom floor waiting out the barfy feeling.
