    migraine in my life....thirty (very) odd years ago!  According to the doctor who treated me then, it was a "classic" ophthalmic migraine.  It lasted a day or so and that was that.

    Learning from other people's experiences is always a help, so thank you for sharing yours.  :-)

    These headaches came on about a month ago, and this one has been constant for about a week.  We can get it to slack off a bit, but it never goes away....except when I'm asleep.  I suspect it is still there, but being asleep, I just don't give a rat's clavicle!

    There are no triggers I'm aware of, which makes it harder to get a handle on.  I don't have any allergies, either, so there's another culprit out.

    I had an MRI done on Wednesday, and I go to the neurologist this coming Wednesday for the results and, hopefully, some answers.  

    The challenge has been trying to get a handle on the pain, while waiting for a firm diagnosis.  But I can tell you this much.....the loving support of my online framily (friends and family) has kept me semi-sane through this.

    Ice cream doesn't hurt, either, now that I think of it.  And I always think of it!!

    :-)

    Once we get the pain stopped cold this time, you've given me a few really good ideas for keeping another from taking hold.  Thanks so much for sharing your experiences and ideas... I really appreciate it!

    We cannot call ourselves a civilised society if we refuse to protect the weakest among us.
