I have been battling Hemiplegic Migraines for over 20 years. They were only two or three times a year until two years ago. For some reason, my episodes started coming multiple times a day and most every day. I don’t want this blog to become a place for me to complain but the negative aspect of migraine is part of the story.

During the past two years I have had around 5 hospital stays, multiple ER visits, heart surgery and more medication changes than I could even try to list. I have changed my diet, gave up chocolate 😢 and tried really hard to cut down on caffeine (some what successful).

I have some really bad episodes but NOTHING compares to yesterday morning. The pain woke me up and the pain was a 9 on the pain scale with spikes of a 10! My husband gave me my medications and I used my oxygen. Every time the spikes would comes, my entire body would tense up. This pain lasted for almost 45 minutes before the medicine started working.

Needless to say, I spent yesterday in bed. Today every muscle in my body hurts and to add to the chaos there is a weather front coming through and the barometric pressure is falling. 😡

Maybe it is because I am tired from yesterday…maybe it is the weather today…but seriously! I just want to pull the covers over my head and hide. The paralysis, the inability to get my words to come out right, the brain fog and the excruciating pain… I am sick of it!
